Hi, I'm David Blatner. Welcome to InDesign CS5 Essential Training. InDesign CS5 is a professional design and layout tool. It's used by most graphic designers, magazine and book publishers, newspapers, and ad agencies around the world. InDesign CS5 lets you precise positioning text and graphics on your page, and then output your documents for either print or as interactive files. In this course, I'll show you everything you need to start building your high quality InDesign documents.
I'll teach you how to create a new document and build strong and flexible master pages, which can really speed up laying out your file. I'll explain how to bring text and graphics onto your page, manipulate them, even animate them to make your designs jump off the page. And I'll discuss how to ready your pages for final output, whether that's for print, PDF, or a Flash SWF file. However, InDesign CS5 is so rich that every feature relates to every other feature and that's why I recommend that you watch this Essential Training title once all the way through and then go back to watch specific movies when you need a review.
I've doing page layout for 20 years and I've been working with InDesign since it came out a decade ago. As the cohost of indesignsecrets.com, I've learned this program inside and out, and I'm looking forward to sharing its secrets with you. So come on, let's have some fun with InDesign CS5 Essential Training.
