Learn from a seasoned expert all the parts, features, tools, settings, styles, and shortcuts you’ll need to handle layout, typography, graphic elements, colours, and output.

Adobe InDesign is the standard for print and PDF layout. It may seem daunting, but you can learn the basic principles of it fairly quickly. And even if you’ve been using it for a while, there are features you may not be aware of that can save you a lot of time and trouble.

The first session will cover overall layout and text setup; the second session will go into details of text boxes, tables, pictures, colours, and output.

As a result of this session, you will be able to use InDesign effectively, efficiently, and elegantly for most purposes you are likely to encounter, including creating a layout from scratch and editing in a layout created by someone else.











James Harbeck has been doing desktop layout and design for 25 years, and has used InDesign since it first came out. He is also a well-known author and presenter on editing topics.
