Get the project folder from the overview video.
So now we are getting into the ‘Create a Project’ section of this course, in the previous 23 episodes... I introduced you to Photoshop, showcased some handy tips and we practised some essential tools and techniques.
Now its time to take all that we have learnt and create a project from scratch.
