I Love Graphics - Things I Love #14

Last year I took an online course on Graphics.

I learned the basics and thoroughly enjoyed it.

So much so that I look forward to making the graphics for my blog posts all the time now.

I look forward to doing graphics for our church announcements and for the church facebook posts.

I've experimented with different forms and layouts and now I look at the pictures I take in a completely different way too.

So today's post is a compilation of a sample of the different things I have learned to create.

There are buttons and series pics for my blog

There are graphics I made on a Christmas Theme

There are graphics I made for church announcements and presentations

There are specific blog post graphics I put together

There are pictures I took and made into feature post pictures

There are Bible Verse graphics 

If you are interested in getting a start into Graphics then click this Graphics button

and see what the course I did offers.

(I am an affiliate for them so there will be some compensation to me if you decide to do the course but this is at no extra cost to you.)

Now after developing more of an interest my big question is

Do I invest in Photoshop?

Or will that take up even more of my time?

Am I completely hooked already?

Or will I become a complete bore on this subject?

Or More Importantly

I see Industry reviews and a review from a scrapbooker 


I wonder would Adobe offer to give me a free version of Photoshop
 to try out and review for them?

  1. I love this! I've played around a bit myself with graphics although I haven't been able to take the financial plunge into Adobe yet ;) In the meantime, I'm loving Canva and free phone apps like Over and Studio which let me indulge in my creative whims!

  2. Yes definitely I hope Photoshop gives you a free version for a review. And yes I can see where it may take over your life rather like you tube in my case lol
    I must get you to teach a class in church now that would be an idea!

  3. For me it has to be picmonkey, I only use the free version for now, but I find it so easy and versatile.
    It's nice to be able to make graphics that look professional, I bet your church is delighted you have these skills now.

  4. I love Picmonkey - I use it for so many things. It's so easy to use, it makes me feel like I know what I'm doing!

  5. You are doing great with graphics, I love them too - studied them for Web design. Keep up the good work.


  6. You have done a great job. Graphics are fun. I have trouble finding the time to spend on mine. You would like Photoshop. If you have a student ID you can get a discount on it. I did last year when I took a course
