Hi, I'm David Blatner. Welcome to Getting Started with InDesign. InDesign is an amazing tool for laying out text and graphics on both print, and digital pages. And it's used by millions of publishers around the world to create books, magazines, ads, interactive PDF and ePub files and more. My goal in this short title is to get you acquainted enough with InDesign that you could create a new InDesign file or edit one that someone else has made.
This is the basics of the basics. Step zero, if your boss handed you a file and you need to open it and do something with it before lunch today, start here. At the end of this title, I'll tell you where you can get more InDesign training so that you can dive even deeper into this incredible page layout tool. Okay, let's get started with InDesign.
