Hope you're staying safe and doing well! For the longest, I've subscribed to Adobe but have been hesitant to fully dive into tutorials to explore everything I want to design. Ironically, for the longest, I've used PowerPoint for creative projects out of familiarity (see attached for some examples of my work). I've known for sometime that eventually I'd walk across the metaphorical stage and graduate from Office tools to a more professional quality with different functionality... and today's the day I reach out and grab that diploma. Does anyone have any recommendations on how I could get started? I'm talking absolute basics, I still don't understand what is the difference between Photoshop and Illustrator; Premiere Pro and After Effects; InDesign and anything else. Please help... there's an invitation to my virtual grad party in it for you (designed on [insert Adobe App here that I still don't know] of course).
That was EXTREMELY helpful Nancy, thank you! I was aiming to design graphics for digital presentations, social media/instagram stories (framed in a custom layout with video embedded). Sounds like I should start with photoshop and premier pro.
