Mac Computer and Applications Tutoring/Onsite Consulting
Macs are not just for graphics anymore...
These days, Mac users are a much bigger group than say back in the 90's. Originally known as the group of computer users "good for graphics" MacIntosh Computers are now more common in the workplace and since the introduction of the Apple Stores, Solid State Hard Drives and exploding technology, there are a lot more people using them than just graphic designers. Many industries rely on Apple Computers and since they are based on the Unix kernel, they last many years.
Let's face it, there are many resources to learn Macs and compatible Apps such as watching Youtube for tips, and other Internet-based information hubs. However, your computer only comes with "basic instructions" what if you want to learn PhotoShop from Adobe™ and have have no idea where to start?
