Event Description

Adobe InDesign combines extraordinary production power and creative freedom to take your page designs to new levels. This course introduces you to the fundamentals of InDesign's tools, menus, panels, and more. Discover how to customize the workspace, preferences, and keyboard shortcuts and produce superb typography and accurate page layouts for print or web.
Explore import functions to incorporate text and images from a variety of sources. Learn how to specify color and bleeds, for accurate prepress, and how to create press-ready files for print.


Master great features like Smart Guides, Smart Alignment and Spacing, and Live Preflight while leveraging your efforts with InDesign's interactive output features. Learn how to export SWF files -- complete with page transitions, interactive buttons, rollovers, and hyperlinks -- directly from within InDesign to create interactive SWF and PDF documents like online magazines.


This workshop is ideal for graphic designers, art directors, and production artists. Gain practical knowledge and become more efficient and productive with time-saving hands-on projects in design and layout.
