Do I have to bring my own computer to Social sessions?
Yes, please bring your desktop or your laptop. It is a hands-on workshop and you will be working on your own material throughout the two days.

Do I need to have Photoshop to attend the class?
Yes, you can download a free 30-day trial of Photoshop to use for the class, in case you don’t want to
purchase it right away. Please ensure that you have downloaded the latest version of Photoshop CS6 or at
least Version CS5.

Will Photoshop Element work?
No, we teach the full version of Photoshop. Although it’s a great program we want you to have the full
version for the workshop.

Is the workshop suitable for beginners?
Yes, we teach Photoshop from scratch, so if you have no idea or don’t know where to begin then this class is perfect for you. Those who know a bit of Photoshop may still have things to learn and will also benefit from this workshop.
You do not need to know much about the social media space either. We do require that you are active on at least one social media platform , though, so that you do have some sort of feel for the social media
environment. If you are unsure, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we will be able to answer any
questions you might have.
Social Ideas can also help you to get up and running on a social platform – Please contact
info@socialideas.co.za for assistance at a discounted rate.

What do I need to bring?
You need to bring your computer, loaded with Photoshop (or the free trial version), a mouse, a camera (an iphone/smartphone with a decent camera will work to) and an eagerness to learn. It’s important to be
comfortable so that you can be relaxed in your creativity. We will also include a photo session on the first day, so if you have interesting accessories/clothing, please bring those along too.

How long is the workshop?
It runs from 8:30am to about 16:00pm on the first day and 9:00am to 16:00pm on the second day. There will also be some mingling time after the workshop on the first day, so we suggest that you hang around for some drinks and enjoy the success of the day.

Do I need to have all my social media accounts set up?
No, we only require that you are set up and active on at least one social media platform. We will help you to get set up on other platforms you may need. You will also be able to do this yourself after the workshop.

What does the class include?
Two days of hands-on workshops in a fun, friendly and creative learning environment. You will go home with a ‘swag bag’ of goodies and a workshop guide of everything that you learnt in the workshop. We provide you with food, snacks, refreshments and cocktails/mingling drinks. Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements. There will be a variety of vegetarian and finger-fork meals.
