What’s it about?
Images are the engine of social media storytelling. Here’s your opportunity to try some free tools for finding, editing, optimising … and creating magic with images!
In this taster session we’ll explore sources for quality stock photos and simple online tools for editing, enhancing, background removal and adding text. You’ll also learn how to optimise images for online use, create simple designs for Instagram Stories and dabble in a little AI text-to-image creation.

Who’s it for?
No previous experience of image editing is required but the session is ideal for creatives who post to social media or upload stories online.

What equipment will I need?
A laptop or desktop computer with reliable internet connection and access to Zoom. It is highly recommended that participants download CapCut, a free video editing app before the session. Yes, you read that right … CapCut is a video editing app (which we use during our popular mobile video training), but it has a few secret tools that are useful for creating and enhancing images. Links on the CapCut website: capcut.com/tools/video-editing-app. You do NOT have to create an account with CapCut.

Format

This is an Online course, run on the Zoom platform. Please note our courses are not recorded. See our full terms and conditions at www.nujtrainingwales.org for more information about our booking procedures, cancellation policy and more.
