Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video DPS workflow, part of InDesign CC: Interactive Document Fundamentals (2014).
To publish content with Adobe's digital…publishing suite, there are two main phases.…First, you do most of the work in InDesign to create folios,…add content to them and insert the overlays that make DPS apps interactive.…Then you use Adobe's Folio Producer tools to share or publish your projects.…So let's take a look at the details of this workflow.…In the DPS workflow, the file that…you create for publication is called the folio.…And in many cases, the folio is an issue of a magazine although it…can also be a separate one off publication even something like a design portfolio.…
So you begin your DPS project on the desktop, by…creating a folio using the Folio Builder panel in InDesign.…You choose options, like a target device, resolution, and orientation, plus the…image format for the content that will sit underneath the interactive overlays.…Then, once you have a folio,…you add content to it in the form of articles.…Which can be imported, or created from an open InDesign document.…Then you create interactivity with the Folio Overlays panel.…
