Our Help Me Do It services
Our range of Help Me Do It services have been tailored to suit all circumstances. There is bound to be a solution that will ensure your photobook project runs smoothly, with just the type and amount of help you need. The following options are available:
These are held at our Subiaco store and are scheduled on a regular basis. They are ideal for those that just like a friendly introduction to using our software or those that want to learn about all the capabilities for designing a truly beautiful book. Following our QuickStart session, you will have sufficient knowledge to start exploring the basic capabilities of our Easy Designer photobook design software. Our Masterclass sessions will arm attendees with a range of design possibilities to make their photobook design concept a reality.
The Cahoots “QuickStart” sessions are a fun way for first time users of Easy Designer to jump-start their photobook project. These 60 minute sessions cover the necessary basics of using Easy Designer to create a photobook. Learn how to choose a product, access your images, apply them to pages, and enhance the look of your book with backgrounds. We’ll review the ordering process and the potential warnings and errors, before submitting your project online. In the time available, there is obviously not sufficient time to cover all the functions of the software – but we will point you to the available self-help resources. Alternatively, you may wish to sign up to one of our Masterclass photobook design workshops.
Our Getting Started sessions are normally held once or twice a month on Saturdays between 4:00pm and 5:30pm. As places are limited (up to 6 participants), advanced booking and payment is essential to secure your place. Click here to view the topics covered and to secure your place in an upcoming session.
Photobook Design Masterclass:
These sessions are intended for those that are comfortable with the basic operation of Easy Designer (or have used other photobook design software). Our Photobook Design Masterclass will arm attendees with a range of design possibilities to make their photobook design concept a reality. During the 60 minute session we will cover a range of tools and techniques that should give you the knowledge to take your photobook design skills to the next level.
Our Masterclass sessions are normally held once or twice a month on Saturdays between 4:00pm and 5:00pm. As places are limited (up to 8 participants), advanced booking and payment is essential to secure your place. Click here to view the topics covered and to secure your place in an upcoming session.
If the timing of the public workshops does not suit, or you wish to have a dedicated, concentrated session one-to-one, we can schedule a private session at a mutually convenient time. The subject matter can be tailored to your needs, with or without time allocated for onsite practice exercises to reinforce the learnings. Private workshops cost $80 per hour. If you would like to book a private workshop please call us at the shop on (08) 9388 7619 or send us a message.
Sometimes our clients like to book a consultation to check their photobook project and perhaps receive advice on areas for improvement, or to learn a little more about using the capabilities of the Cahoots software. There is no charge for reviews that are less than 15 minutes. Beyond that, the cost is $20 per 15 minute block.
Cahoots “Do It For Me”
Of course, if your project becomes too overwhelming and/or you simply no longer have the time to finish it, you can make use of our “Do It For Me” service, and let us design a unique book that meets your expectations.
Screen Clip Movies
If you learn best by visual means, take a look at our screen movies on YouTube. We’ll be adding to these over time, so keep in touch with us so we can let you know when new content is available. Our first “overview” video Cahoots Software Quick Start, shows just how easy it is to create a photobook with Cahoots software.
During shop hours, we are able to take your calls and emails regarding questions about using our software or services. Naturally, there is no charge for this. (You’ll be speaking to someone who uses the Cahoots software more or less on a daily basis. You won’t get diverted to a support department, or issued with a ticket number. Normally we are able to answer your questions right there and then.)
