Introduction to Adobe InDesign® CS6
A comprehensive 2 day course for beginner users of the Adobe InDesign program
COURSE LENGTH: 2 days
UPCOMING DATES: TBA
TIME: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
INSTRUCTOR: Sean Cooke
Adobe InDesign CS6 software, available for both Mac and Windows®, breaks down the barriers between online and offline publishing. Now you can create compelling print materials, immersive content for playback in the Adobe Flash® Player runtime, and interactive PDF documents—all with beautiful typography and stunning design. InDesign CS6 professional page layout software is the ideal tool to deliver sophisticated layouts for traditional and online media.
Tight integration with other Adobe Creative Suite®6 components includes new cross-product support. For example, InDesign layouts can now be opened directly in Adobe Flash CS6 Professional software with page design and typography preserved. Use InDesign CS6 as your layout tool of choice to deliver dynamic, interactive content across media.
This is the perfect class for those new to Adobe software or desktop publishing. Over the course of two days, we’ll orient you with the program, functions, tools, and more; by the end of the second day you’ll be able to comfortably use the software. If you have been using Quark or Adobe software, you might prefer our one day class, Down and Dirty Basics.
In order to be successful with this course, a basic understanding of the operating system and of using applications in general is needed.
