About This Class

In this class we'll be creating the groovy rotating twirling graphic in Photoshop you can see below.

This will involve working with vectors, effects, the animation timeline in Photoshop as well as color effects to modify and change your graphic easily.

There are some great skills that you will pick up in this fun and easy to follow the class.

If you are unsure about clicking subscribe then I invite you to look into the middle of this hypnotic animation and chant with me 'I will join, I will join!'.

Enjoy the class everyone!
