Ready to put away your photo gear and make your shop listing images be the easiest part of your business?

You're only a couple steps away from making your drinkware be the talk of the internet...

The Photoshop 101 for Makers course teaches you the first step towards creating gorgeous images for your handmade shop...using Photoshop mockups -- even if you've never touched the program in your life!

My Photoshop 101 for Makers Course gives you an easy, actionable introduction to the basics of this powerhouse program. You'll make your very first mockup within an hour, and come away from the course able to make mockups anytime you want, day or night.

 

This is the FIRST STEP towards building a skill in this program that will help you skyrocket sales in your business for years to come.

*IMPORTANT* The full Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud subscription is required to do the course.

You already know you need listing images in order to get sales, so you've been snapping your own product pics one-at-a-time, by yourself.

AND IT'S BEEN WORKING OK SO FAR, BUT...

  • You started your business to create additional income streams for your family, but your growth is severely hindered by the WEEKS it takes you to create each new listing + photo.
     
  • There never seem to be enough daylight hours for great lighting in your photos, when you already have a schedule packed with to-dos and drop onto the couch in exhaustion at 10pm every night after you *finally* get all the kids to bed.
     
  • You tried to use Photoshop before, and after installation, you were left staring at an intimidating, blank screen, filled with strange menus, and decided you'd "figure it out later" when you had more time...and later hasn't happened yet.
     
  • You have hundreds of ideas for new designs, but they're languishing inside your cutting software because you know that in order to list them for sale you'd have to print, cut, and create EVERY SINGLE ONE BY HAND **JUST** to take a photo of something that may never sell. And the thought of wasting all that time, money, and materials makes you want to cry.
     
  • You're afraid that all the best customers will skip right over your shop on a search results page filled with hundreds of professionally photographed wares, and immaculately styled photo scenes from your rival shops (that seem to put out new products by the dozens every single day).
     
  • You're making money in your business but worried about committing to a monthly subscription of Photoshop when you DON'T KNOW IF YOU'RE EVEN CAPABLE of learning how to use it the way you want to. So you purchase readymade mockups on days when you have a few dollars to spend, and make do with poorly lit, unfocused (unprofessional) DIY photos on the days you don't have cash.
     
  • You even tried mockups on your own when you heard how great they were, but after laying your design on top of the photo, not only did it look fake and terrible, but also you had no idea how to save it out at the right size to be able to load into your online shop for your listing image.

The truth is..

When you take the time to learn Photoshop Mockup basics, you never have to worry about wasted time, supplies, or money, again.


With the knowledge from this course you never have to buy a mockup from someone else again! YOU will have the power to turn stock photos into mockups at will. Like a Genie! :-)
 

And once you've learned the basics...the sky is the limit with this program. Soon you'll be making all your business graphics in there. No more asking your teenager to do it for you.

 

Plus...SELFIES!

Can I really do this? I've always struggled with tech :-(

ABOUT YOUR INSTRUCTOR

Hey, I'm Sarah Guilliot!
 

Founder of SarahDesign.com and Designer/Teacher with a mission to help creatively-driven women increase their handmade shop profits, without increasing their work hours, through the use of polished and professional images in their online shops.

 

I've spent 20 years beautifying the internet with sales-generating images for e-commerce giants like Amazon, T-Mobile, GoDaddy and Microsoft. But I wasn't fulfilled working with these faceless companies. I wanted to help real people...makers...like YOU, instead! That's when I started my first Etsy shop, and immersed myself in the maker community.

I noticed many of my fellow Etsy shop owners, and friends with Shopify, Facebook, and other online stores, were having trouble showcasing their wares online. They were selling glass and mirrored products, personalized with etching and decals...all terribly hard to take pictures of since they're so reflective!

 

It's time consuming to take all your own photos, and cost-prohibitive to hire a photographer, or purchase all the gear. It's also a waste of materials to create every design imagineable when you don't have a customer lined up to purchase. I knew the solution from my 20 years of designing for corporate America...Photoshop MOCKUPS! That's where my journey began, and where I hope to help you get started today.

Long gone are the days when you have to waste materials making "sample" designs just for a picture -- when you have to drag out a bunch of photo gear in your 15 minutes of chore-free daylight hours just to snap one passable shot for ONE new product listing (that may never sell.)

 

Instead, you can start listing DOZENS of products for sale WEEKLY, with perfect product images every time, and have your photos start doing the selling for you.

FAQs

DO I NEED PHOTOSHOP FOR THIS COURSE? WHICH VERSION?

 

Yes, you do need it to be installed for this challenge. I used the most current version of Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud at the time of recording, so I can't guarantee the lessons or files will work for you in older versions of the program.
 

Get the latest Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud at this link (this plan also gives you Lightroom, score!) http://bit.ly/sd-adobe-9 to get it at the most inexpensive tier for $9.99/mo currently (affiliate link.) I won’t be able to troubleshoot your installation, but it’s very straightforward on the Adobe site.

 

CAN I USE PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS FOR THIS?

 

No, I can't guarantee the lessons and files will work with anything other than Adobe Photoshop CC.

 

DO I NEED ANY PHOTOSHOP EXPERIENCE TO DO THIS COURSE?

 

Nope, not a shred! I’ll give you an overview of the program tools and each task clearly explained and is small and totally achievable for complete beginners.

 

I DON'T SELL DRINKWARE. WILL I STILL GET VALUE FROM THE COURSE?

 

Absolutely! I’m going to teach you about the Photoshop tools and interface, and how to create a simple mockup by adding text or a cut file to a photo. I have some recommended stock photos to try this on (beer, wineglass) but you can easily do the same process with wood signs, frames, t-shirts, etc. Feel free to use other photos for your assignments and ask for help if you get stuck!

 

DO YOU OFFER SUPPORT FOR THE COURSE?

 

I don't have a dedicated group, but you CAN reach out to me over email anytime if you get stuck. I'm happy to help!

 

HOW LONG WILL I HAVE ACCESS TO THE COURSE MATERIALS?

 

This course is yours! Take all the lessons now, or save them for later. Or both. You can log in to your course area anytime you need a refresher or want to grab the included files. You get access for the lifetime of the course.

 

DO I GET ALL THE LESSONS AT ONCE OR ARE THEY DRIPPED OUT OVER WEEKS?

 

You have access to the entire course (5 lessons) immediately upon purchase. No waiting! Some students like to binge all 5 video lessons the first day (they're all less than 20 minutes each), and other folks like to take one lesson and practice/let it sink in for a day before moving on. It's entirely self-paced so go at whatever speed you prefer.

 

IS PHOTOSHOP REALLY NECESSARY? CAN'T I MAKE MOCKUPS IN CANVA OR MY CUTTING SOFTWARE?

 

Sure, you can technically make mockups in all sorts of programs. But making high-quality mockups that look convincing (with cool things like shadows, and color tweaking, etc) is harder. Photoshop also allows you to make sure your image sizes are correct, control how you save out your file, and all kinds of other neat functions. Once you have a taste of the basics of this program, then the REAL fun begins. There's so much more you can do after you've warmed up to it. This is just the beginning!
