Getting Started with Adobe InDesign, Part 2

Characteristics Of This Class:

Take your InDesign skills to the next level with this industry standard program for print design and page layout.

Adobe InDesign offers much better text formatting and image alignment than your average word processing program, and it integrates beautifully with Photoshop, Illustrator, and other Adobe applications.

This workshop expands on techniques from Getting Started with Adobe InDesign, Part 1. You'll discover more of InDesign's core features and built-in effects, enabling you to improve on your text and add additional pages. We'll also cover time-saving tips and tricks that will help you get the most out of InDesign.

This workshop will cover:

  • Managing linked graphics
  • Importing text
  • Styling objects, paragraphs, and characters
  • Working with layers
  • Flowing text across multiple pages

Presented in Adobe Creative Cloud, but most of what is taught will apply to earlier versions of the program.

Who Should Take This:

Anyone who wants to be a graphic designer, or create brochures, catalogs, books, and other print media. It's perfect for designers transitioning from PageMaker, Quark, or entry-level word processing software too! You should take Getting Started with Adobe InDesign, Part 1 if you're not familiar with the InDesign interface and basic tools.
