Most brands are faced with the challenge of creating and sharing new visual  content on a regular basis whether it’s through social media, in email marketing, or on their website. In order to attract the attention of your existing and potential customers and clients, you must be able to capture your own photos and videos using your smartphone or tablet, as well as design graphics that clearly communicate your messages, provide consistency, and are eye catching.
