Instructor David Blatner teaches the intricacies of creating, editing, and publishing professional layouts with InDesign CS3, from setting preferences to employing advanced typography and transparency effects. InDesign CS3 Beyond the Basics covers each step in the publishing process, and explores such topics as structuring InDesign content to use XML; setting up preferences for composition, type, and units of measure; avoiding problems with transparency, managing and producing long documents; and exporting files for print. Exercise files accompany the course.
Welcome to InDesign CS3 Beyond the Basics. I'm David Blatner and if you've already watched my InDesign Essential Training title from lynda.com, you know that I am also the cohost of InDesignSecrets.com and I'm the editorial director of both InDesign magazine and the InDesign conference. In this title I'm going to start up where I left off and guide you beyond the basics and into dozens of important features that you need to know in order to master this incredible program. Over the course of this title we'll tackle techniques for optimizing your layouts, automating InDesign with data merge, XML, scripts, plug-ins, setting great-looking type, exporting and printing color managed documents and more.
As I always like to tell my students, the more you know, the better it gets. And after you watch the next hundred or so movies you're going to know a lot about InDesign. Let's dive in and start exploring, shall we?
