The Brief

Guide to the Program

InDesign is a powerful design and production application that offers precision, control, and seamless integration with other Adobe professional graphics software such as Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. It has long been the industry standard for publications such as books, magazines, and brochures, and it has now become the industry standard for creating ePubs, interactive PDFs, and interactive magazines that are viewed on tablets such as iPads.

InDesign is used by designers, graphic artists, and anyone who wants more control over placing elements on a page. In this Introduction class, you will learn the basics of InDesign, including:

  • An overview to the workspace.
  • Set up a document from scratch using multiple master pages, pages of varying sizes, and adding page numbers.
  • Understand layers, create and format text and graphic frames, including adding text wrap, changing the shape of frames, and aligning frames.
  • Import text from Microsoft Word and flow it into InDesign across threaded text frames.
  • Use Find/Change, Spell Check, and Story Editor.
  • Create and apply colors, gradients, spot colors, and tints to text and objects.
