It’s that time of year again. Whether you are a professional photographer offering holiday cards to your customers or a hobbyist wanting to make collages, cards, and gifts for your friends and family, you will want to know how work with cards in Photoshop: add your images, change colors and alter text as desired. This MCP Online Group Workshop makes using cards and templates easy and fun.

Not only will you learn how to add pictures to your templates, you will know how to use clipping masks, adjust colors (where applicable), change text, and more. And thanks to some amazing partnerships and collaborations with MCP Actions, this class will include dozens of cards and templates for photographers from leading designers. New this year, class also comes with 23 beautiful digital papers.

Once you sign up for this workshop, you will get the following:

  1. Hundreds of dollars worth of cards, templates, digital papers: dozens of designs (one sided and double sided cards, calender templates, senior templates, wedding set, and more) by leading graphic designers for photographers.
  2. A 1 1/2 hour live workshop teaching you how to use the cards and templates: you will learn clipping masks, layer order, changing colors when applicable, adding or changing text, and more! See the bottom of this post for times and dates available.

Since this class is seasonal, dates, prices and purchase info is at the bottom of this post.

    Great designs! My site actually deals with printing and sending postcards at a fair price in individual or bulk. So if you ever wanted to send out your work to friends/family, feel free to hit it up! It’s a terrific way to keep in touch and show what you’ve been learning.

    Information is emailed out two days prior. Class in a week from tomorrow on the 5th of October. Let me know if you have any questions.
