with James Lockman

Video: Welcome

Hello. I'm James Lockman and welcome to Up and Running with the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite or DPS. Advertisers, publishers and corporations are all using this emerging publishing platform. This course requires an understanding of how to use InDesign. We'll see how to add movies and interactivity to InDesign documents and then publish them as tablet applications. I'll begin by comparing DPS to print and EPUB and we'll see how to set up a document for DPS. Then we'll see how to use the DPS tools to add interactivity to our InDesign projects.
