Ventura, CA (PRWEB) October 18, 2007
lynda.com, the leader in self-paced digital media and design training, today introduced Graphic Secrets for Business Professionals.
Graphic Secrets for Business Professionals provides the tools needed to use images successfully in popular applications like Microsoft Word and PowerPoint, Apple Keynote, and more. Instructor Lesa Snider King goes over the importance of including images in business documents and presentations, and teaches every detail of how to do so effectively. The training covers choosing the right image to convey a message, resizing images for various projects, deciding what file format to use and when, "knocking out" backgrounds, and editing and retouching like a pro using Adobe Photoshop Elements. Also included are the four secrets of great design that ensure smart, professional, and effective documents and presentations. Exercise files accompany the tutorials.
"Graphic Secrets for Business Professionals represents a valuable new addition to the Online Training LibraryÂ®. This course goes beyond learning one software application, and is more about understanding how powerful graphics can be in business use, and how to use graphics even if you have never been to a single art or design class," says Lynda Weinman, CEO of lynda.com.
Anyone with an internet connection can access Graphic Secrets for Business Professionals by subscribing to lynda.com's Online Training LibraryÂ®. A separate CD-ROM version of Graphic Secrets for Business Professionals is planned later this month.
Subscriptions to the lynda.com Online Training LibraryÂ® start at $25 a month, and provide access to over 22,000 movie tutorials covering more than 320 technology career tools, software applications, and techniques. Subscribers can access any of the computer-based training courses at their convenience.
