Getting Started with Graphics-Toolbox

Watch our Getting Started with Graphics-Toolbox and Topic Tutorial Videos to learn how to use Graphics-Toolbox while creating some of our popular projects.

We have developed these series for you, the teacher or homeschool parent, to inform and inspire you. We intend to be continuing to expand the subjects taught in these series and we are open to suggestions. Contact us if you have any particular needs or interests that you would like to see covered in a future video.

We also want to remind you that Graphics-Toolbox is a professional-level graphic program with a lot of functions and an infinite number of applications. You don’t need to learn all the functions to use the program effectively. Start by learning the tools that you need to accomplish your goals and build on that as desired. No pressure.
