Image editing with GoDaddy Studio is the third in of a series of creative digital storytelling workshops in partnership with LEEDS 2023.
About this Event

LEEDS 2023 are excited to be working on a monthly series of free workshops in partnership with 100% Digital Leeds that aim to make creative software training more accessible to Leeds communities.

Image Editing with GoDaddy Studio

Continuing the workshop series, the next workshop will be on the Image editing platform GoDaddy Studio, which will enable you to edit images for anything from presentations to social media. The workshops will cover all the basics to enable you to feel equipped to explore GoDaddy Studio further after the workshops.

Led by Artist and marketing genius Lydia Cottrell, the workshop will talk you through all the basics of the software, from opening a project and adding images, to simple editing, adding effects and exporting your work to then be uploaded and shared to any platform you want. Lydia will also signpost to other free resources to continue learning the software in your own time.

The workshop will be interactive, where you will follow what Lydia is doing on your own laptop as they take you through a step-by-step guide of using the software. No previous experience is necessary, we just ask you to come with a laptop and be eager to learn something new with the rest of the group!


Bring a laptop

Attendees will need to bring a laptop. GoDaddy Studio is a really simple program that runs on a web browser and does not need a powerful laptop, whether you have a 10-year-old laptop or brand new Mac, it will work on any system. Please make sure that your laptop has permission to join public wifi.

Bring some digital images to edit

The only other thing we ask is that you bring a couple of pictures you would like to edit. We will be providing LEEDS 2023 stock photo images but it’s always more interesting if you are able to work on projects you are invested in.

  • The workshop is open to anyone over the age of 18.
  • The workshop will be recorded and be accessible online with BSL translation shortly after the sessions.
  • The workshop is hosted at Platform near the Leeds Train station.
  • All participants will be given the option of claiming a free First bus Day rider if needed to attend the workshop.
  • You will have the opportunity to tell us about any accessibility needs at the point of booking.

About the workshop series

Each workshop in the creative digital storytelling series will give you new ways to share your own stories and the stories of the people you work with using free and easy to use digital tools.

Across the series we’ll cover:
  • Social media training for Twitter, Instagram, and Tiktok
  • Interactive storytelling on Twine
  • Livestream using OBS, Twitch, YouTube Live and Restream
  • Basics of video game making using Unity

Who are the workshops for?

The workshops are for anyone who is new to digital design software, people that want to learn new skills for themselves or to share with the people and communities they work with, or anyone who wants to explore new ways to make digital content. These workshops will enable you to make artworks and create digital content for your organisation or businesses, and will give everyone taking part new skills to use as part of LEEDS 2023 year of culture. The workshops are open to anyone over the age of 18.

The workshops will give you the skills for capturing and sharing the impact of your work and creating engaging content for your social media or website. The same skills could be brought into your creative events programming and used to help the people and communities you work with to record and share their stories and creative work, upskill them and teach them new skills. These free workshops will be breaking down the perceptions that digital software's are difficult to use, expensive and inaccessible.
