    You've come quite far with the tools available to you. I hope you eventually get that photoshop full version creative box with no limits with what you can do and then show us how you master layers, masking, vectoring, retouching, and everything .. when you take it to level 11

    Ta :D I'm not great and I need to find some tutorials really to improve a bit more. But I do it to relax at the moment even if getting it to the way I have in my mind never works lol.

    Baby steps, just try to figure out what things mean and make a collection of groups in your bookmarks with some great youtubers that do specific things in a few minute videos. Start with the basic features of the software you have, and that will then be a lot more comfortable to use in the big brother photoshop when you get it.

    Maybe we should put our money together and get a new photoshop + lightroom license and pay for a year ahead, and do it 50/50. I think we can run 1 license on "our two systems", who cares if there's a #brexit in between us :P

    My biggest tip is to just do it, just start doing graphic stuff over and over again and learn from it and apply what you learned, from short cuts to little tricks, and key combos.

    And second biggest is 'non destructive layers, and everything in layers' So you can at any time go back and change text, effects, gradients, maskings, paths, etc.

    You have to simplify your effects, it gets a bit too crowded on some of the banners.

    But nice job on your banner making :)

    I can see a clear improvement, there is less clutter when it comes to text, and typography is being considered more. The backgrounds have a texture, but they're not 5+ different pictures brushed into eachother.

    Keep it up!

    I'd edit the pictures more as they're quite dark. Also not a big fan of the fonts but that's just my take on it :) Keep working on it :)
