Why I Created This Course
Hi, I'm Holly McCaig
Hey there! I don't know if we have met yet, or even chatted before, but in case we haven't I wanted to introduce myself to you!
I am a graphic artist and blogger. I’m passionate about helping other creative entrepreneurs find success by providing you with tips, tutorials, and strategies to help you quit your day job or take your current biz to the next level.
I just love helping people!
I know that as a freelance graphic artist, not everyone can afford to hire me. That's okay! In fact, I probably couldn't afford me either.
I decided that I wanted to help those creative solopreneurs that were just starting out or working on the side how to do some of the things I do by creating this course, Photoshop Your Biz.
I know how challenging the course can be, and I know that if you could learn only what you have to know to get your projects done, you would. You just need help getting there.
So, if you aren't in a position where you can afford to outsource your graphics like printables or worksheets, or even social media graphics, I hear you!
You can learn how!
I hope that you'll jump right in and take control over your business and blog graphics.

Still have questions?
What software do I need?
I am teaching Photoshop, so it's recommended to purchase or have already Photoshop CS6 or higher. yes, you can use lower versions to accomplish much of what I will do. However, please note that Photoshop has changed some of the location of their features so there may be some issues with locating them. Plus, there may be a few things like Smart Objects that won't work for you. You can download a free trial of Photoshop here.
I am not a designer, will this course work for me?
Of course! I believe that by going through some of the design recommendations in our three projects, you'll be able to take away some great ideas!
What about Canva or PicMonkey?
This course focuses on the pro functions of Adobe Photoshop, so no, none of these tutorials, nor the bonus items will be available for those software packages.
