One of the great things about InDesign is that it's so rich, so deep that there's always more to learn. If you want to go deeper with InDesign, I have several recommendations. First, check out the web site that I produce with Anne-Marie Concepcion, indesignsecrets.com. There are hundreds of tips and tricks and more every week, plus the free InDesignSecrets audio and video podcasts, video tutorials, live seminars on the web and more. Next, consider going to one of the InDesignSecrets Live seminars or conference.
These things are chock-full of information and it's a great way to connect with the community. I also encourage you to check out InDesign Magazine, which is a great resource written by InDesign experts all over the world. It's distributed as a PDF and you can download a free trial issue at indesignmag.com. Another great place to share ideas with other InDesign users are these free InDesign user groups in various cities all around the world. You can see if there's one near you by going to indesignusergroup.com.
Definitely, check out lynda.com's Online Training Library every month to see when new InDesign titles are available. We've got a host of them planned. Lots of fun to come!
