Default Digi Design Academy!!


I thought with all the new aspiring designers coming in here to check out the awesome new Program Toiny has set up, that I would let you all know about Sherah's Digi Design Academy!

The Digi Design Academy is a "work-at-your-own-pace" type of classroom to teach you everything you need to know about becoming a Designer!! It covers three programs, Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, & Paint Shop Pro! It is taught by the lovely & talented Sherah of Skrapper Digitals, who is just the sweetest "teacher" by far!

It includes topics like Monitor Calibration, TOU's, Color Theory, cleaning up CU products for use, Quality checking your products, Logo Design, How to apply to a store, FTP usage, Copyright, Industry Standards, Preview Making, essential items for a kit, blogging, product descriptions, promoting yourself & your designs, blinkies/banners, basic design principles, basics of creating elements, making your own overlays/brushes/patterns/textures, gentle critique & one-on-one coaching if needed!

If you want more information, you can find the product in the store here! I am a student of the academy, and I highly recommend it! Sherah's lessons are very straight forward and easy to understand. And the best part is being able to learn at your own pace, so you are not forced to make time for the lessons! Once you purchase the product, you have "unlimited" access to the site and all the wonderful information shared over there!

Thanks for all the info. Sherah is just as sweet as anyone can possibly be. I just love her.

I really would like to learn PSP so maybe this fall when things quiet down for me I can sign up for her class.

I highly, highly recommend this program. Sherah is one of our most successful designers and this is a very well-thought out, easy to understand, cover all the bases program.

If you are serious about designing, but a little confused on any, many, of the ins-and-outs. This is truly priceless.

I can't praise this program enough! It's helping me to understand everything, right from the beginning! You don't know how much goes into being a designer until you become one... or you take Sherah's courses!!

I have to admit I am enjoying this course and recommend it to any one looking for hands on learning at your pace!

I've always been interested in this class even though I have absolutely no intention to become a designer. I think it could help me to make better LO's & to make elements etc that I need & don't have.
I think it would be good for CT's too.

Hmmmm I'm thinking maybe Sherah (yoooohooo Sherah!) could do a "lite" version of this specifically for this purpose. Some of the course you wouldn't need ie: how to TOU, market, etc, etc.

I know that starting scrapping is so confusing. You see these great LO's soooooooooo beautifull, you run & buy the exact same kit & then.... wellllll let's just say I was very unhappy for months. I would much rather have had someone hold my hand & help me learn.

Have been thinking of purchasing but it is just a matter of having the $$ to do so, hopefully when I have the funds the class will still be around

I don't think Sherah's going anywhere anytime soon!

It's cool because you can learn at your own pace, and she has weekly video chats that are awesome!!
