    I learned about some great free apps that make it easy to create images for social media. You can make some great images with text really quickly after taking this class. I actually made a little animated image during class and posted it Instagram. I also learned about some good places to go for free images. Erica's very personable and fun, which made it an enjoyable class. The apps are easy to use and you can start making images right away. There isn't a steep learning curve.

    If you dread making your own graphics and don't have the budget for a Designer and/or cannot face the learning curve of PhotoShop: THIS IS THE CLASS FOR YOU! Erica packs in a ton of information in this class, with a great sense of humor. If you feel like you want to learn Adobe tools, check out Erica's other classes, especially "How to Create Marketing Materials for Small Businesses." I might be a bit biased, I was lucky enough to be in the studio audience for both days and can say: Erica is one mighty fine teacher!
