Hi, I'm Anne-Marie Concepcion, and this is InDesign CS6 to EPUB, Kindle, and iPad. This course covers the complete eBook workflow for getting your InDesign contents into a number of devices and EPUB reading software. From determining which format you're planning on using, then setting up the original InDesign file to make it EPUB friendly to tinkering with the final EPUB in a variety of utilities like TextWrangler and Dreamweaver to putting the final file out there for publication through Amazon's Kindle, Apple's iBookstore, and plenty of third-party sites and options, I'll show you some specifics like setting up the images, fonts, and video, for best presentation in an EPUB, adding and editing metadata and alt tags to your files, and building custom table of contents and coverage for your final presentation.
