Our two day course will provide you with the core skills you need to make the most of this extremely powerful application. Adobe InDesign software lets you focus on your layout, with the flexibility to publish your pages to a wide range of media. Whether youre creating print or digital documents, you can save time with online services that integrate with and are directly accessible from InDesign, as well as other substantial productivity enhancements. Whether you need to reposition an image within a frame or change the radius of a rounded corner, InDesign helps you work more efficiently. A robust set of new tools let designers create interactive documents that capture readers attention both online and offline. Now you can include complex interactivity, animation, flv video (a popular online video format), and mp3 audio files within InDesign documents. InDesign makes it easier to export documents in swf format, hand off layouts to Adobe flash professional software, and produce epub documents for use with popular ebook readers and devices. InDesign has everything you need to lay out memorable and engaging pages in print or digital format. Who should attend: Producers, editors, assistant editors and motion graphics artists interested in learning the basics of Adobe InDesign.
