COURSES FOR TEXTILE DESIGNERS BY TEXTILE DESIGNERS 

STEP-BY-STEP, EASY TO FOLLOW TASKS TO TAKE YOUR PHOTOSHOP SKILLS TO THE NEXT LEVEL

Learn Photoshop for Watercolour

Stuggling to edit your watercolour paintings in Photoshop? Wish you could be more efficient with the program? 

If you've ever tried to digitise your watercolours, you'll know they require a special type of handling. Their diluted tones can disappear on the scanning bed with the push of a button. And, as the edges of this watery medium aren't strongly defined, it's more difficult to separate elements. 

But you can put all those hair-pulling senarios behind you now, because you're here! In this Print School Course we'll show you the techniques you need to not only digitally enhance your watercolours but to design them with clean, high quality files. 

TEACH ME PHOTOSHOP FOR TEXTILES!
