Effective design and production techniques utilizing the best features of InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop.
(twinkling piano music) - Hi, I'm Nigel French and this is Designing a Magazine Layout. As a graphic designer, as well as an Adobe certified trainer and instructor. I'm looking forward to showing you how to use design and production techniques. In Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, PhotoShop, and Bridge CS4, to create successful magazine layouts. We'll start by identifying the common parts of a magazine feature article. From there, we'll establish efficiant work flow practices, using paragraph, character, and object styles.
We'll look at the aesthetics of choosing and combining type faces, and the integration of text with images. When we're happy with our layout, we'll pre-flight our document, and create a print ready PDF. The techniques I'll be demonstrating, will save you a lot of time, give you greater flexibility, and make your designs more stylish. Let's take the first step toward that with, Designing Magazine Layout.

Q: The instructor explains that doubling-clicking on an image while holding down the Option key on a Mac will automatically open the image in Photoshop. However, the image opens into Preview instead. Why is this happening?
A: Before this feature will work, the correct file type associations must be set up, so that TIFs and JPEGs open with Photoshop and not with Preview.
From the Finder, select any JPEG or TIF file, then Choose File > Get Info. From the Open With drop down menu, choose Photoshop and click the Change All button. Repeat this process for each of the different file types you want use. You need only do this once and it should work from now on.
