Adobe InDesign

Adobe InDesign is the industry-standard page layout program. In this class, you'll learn to use InDesign to produce a variety of single-page and multi-page documents. You'll set and format type, work with paragraph styles, import images from Illustrator and Photoshop, define and apply color, apply graphic effects, create PDFs, and package files for printing. Classroom exercises include creating a simple 4-color brochure and getting it press-ready, building a multi-page catalog, and creating a newspaper.
