About This Course

In this Adobe InDesign CS6 class, you'll get hands-on desktop publishing training and come away knowing how to use this popular page layout software program to design and create professional-quality letterhead, business cards, brochures, PDF files that play movies, and more. You'll discover that you don't have to be a designer or an artist to produce professional-quality documents!

In each lesson, we'll cover an important aspect of InDesign CS6 as you prepare a range of print and online products for Natalie, the fictional owner of Natalie's Nautical Emporium. You'll get dozens of files to use in the lessons—partially completed InDesign files, as well as the graphics, images, fonts, and other content required for the project. And to check your work or troubleshoot any problems you encounter, you'll always get a copy of the finished InDesign project file.

 

Lesson by lesson, you'll explore the best ways to use the features in this program to create different types of material, how to organize and name your files, and how to reuse items such as colors and artwork. By the time you finish the course, you'll not only be comfortable with the tools and features that InDesign CS6 offers, you'll also know the most efficient ways to use the program to produce the materials you need for your own work, recreation, or hobbies.

Review

Donna, I just had to say thank you. You did a wonderful job with this course, and your showing us some tips and tricks along the way about ID made me realize that my switch to this Adobe product from Serif was worth my time and money. As a result, I have completed my new magazine template and realized that your class has helped me immensely. In fact, I will be creating the premiere issue using the template with great confidence this coming week, and I am going to really have a blast doing it because of what you have taught us. Your hands-on approach to trying things out was helpful, and I learned enough that ID is not so overwhelming and complicated as I thought it would be. I am actually enjoying ID a lot and having fun with it. Plus, it all looks so very good and professional without doing a lot of work!
