So much information packed into a small lab session. When her Creative Basics course was announced I jumped on quickly. I love how Crystal teaches in daily bite-size portions that are very easy to follow and understand. I do know Photoshop Elements, but it is so much easier and faster to utilize the multiple apps and websites that Crystal teaches in this class. By putting into practice what I have learned, I am much more confident about my social media posts by including an image that is more appealing to my audience.

Generally speaking most photo sites as that you not use the image on anything you intend to make a profit on, and most will give suggested language on how to properly credit the photographer if they require it. While I might suggest sites during this course that I love to use, it's up to you to learn the terms of use and understand them before you do anything with the images! We'll be building a little library over the next few days so that when we're ready to jump into creating graphics we won't have to spend time hunting for a photo!
