David Blatner brings his knowledge of and passion for InDesign to the latest release of this state-of-the-art publishing program, showing how to harness its power and functionality. InDesign CS4 Beyond the Basics covers the process of publishing with an eye on the program's latest nuances: optimizing page layouts, automating InDesign with Data Merge and XML, exploring interactive documents (including making movies), and exporting publications to a variety of formats. Exercise files accompany the course.
It has been just about ten years since InDesign was first released and if I've learned anything in that time is that there is always more to learn about this extraordinary program. I encourage you to check out the hundreds of blog posts and podcasts at indesignsecrets.com, as well as download a free trial issue of InDesign Magazine at indesignmag.com. I think you will like what you find. Plus just keep playing with InDesign, trying new stuff out. I always say that's the best way to learn. That's it for now. David Blatner signing off. Happy InDesigning!
