(MUSIC). Hello, my name is Gabriel Powell, and I'm going to be your host in this video training workshop. As an Adobe Certified Instructor and a passionate user of InDesign, it's my pleasure to introduce you to the world of eBooks. And teach you how to create an eBook that can be read on a computer, a smartphone or a dedicated eBook reader such as the Apple iPad or even a Sony Reader. I'll first show you what an eBook is and give you an overview of the entire eBook production process. I'll walk you through each step of the way from properly setting up an InDesign document, to exporting the EPUB file.
You'll also learn how to crack open an eBook and make even further adjustments to it as needed. Each chapter in this series is designed to take you through the process from start to finish. So, I recommend that you watch each video once all the way through, and then go back and watch specific videos when you need a review. You can use the project files included with this video to practice everything your learning. So, lets get started and let me show you just how fun and creative it is to create eBooks with InDesign.
