The Adobe Digital Publishing Suite (DPS) is an exciting new set of tools for creating rich, interactive, and immersive reading experiences for tablet devices, and with the release of InDesign CS5.5, it is now available to any user and designer. In this course, design and imaging expert Colin Fleming shows how to get up and running with the tools and workflows involved in this new type of publishing for Apple, RIM, and Android tablets. He shows how to create a number of folios, layouts, and types of interactivity, including Image Sequences, which allow readers to control the playback of images as they would with a flipbook to show time lapse imagery or move around a 3D object. Plus, learn about the tools DPS offers to help publishers monetize digital content, including distribution tools and analytics.
(music playing) Hi, I'm Collin Fleming, all around design and imaging guy for Adobe Systems. I've been working with InDesign since 1999, and the iPad from day one. And the Digital Publishing tools that have become part of DPS since the early beta. This combination is pretty amazing, both in how powerful it is for creating rich, immersive reading experiences for your readers, and just how easy it is to create this interactive publication without being a programmer.
Now, I'm a designer not a developer. So, we'll be looking at how to plan, design, build, and distribute a digital publication in the series from that design perspective. Amongst the many topics in the series, we'll delve into how to create image sequences in your layouts that allow readers to control the playback of images the way they would with a flipbook to show time lapse imagery, or move around a 3D object. We'll work through what goes into building this and other interactive content with DPS tools, and we'll talk about some of the business behind DPS that's rather amazing for publishers. Now, in this course, we'll create a number a folio's, layouts and types of interactivity to get you up and running with tools and workflows involved in this new type of publishing for Apple, RIM, and Android tablets, all based on your use of In Design.
I have enjoyed working with these tools and sharing my experience of their use whenever I can. I've had a great time working on these videos and files. Now, I get to share my knowledge with you. I'm confident that you will learn many new skills and understand these tools more by the end of this workshop.
