- Before we jump into exploring how color works in InDesign, I want you to know that I'm assuming that you know InDesign at least reasonably well already. For example, you should already know how to create and edit InDesign documents. However, if you're new to InDesign, then I strongly recommend that you take a look at my title, called InDesign CC Essential Training, here in the online training library. You might even want to review my title InDesign Insider Training: Beyond the Essentials. Those two titles will give you the foundations to really excel in this course.
Now, I've structured this course based on many years of teaching InDesign to many different kinds of people, from beginners to experts, and the best way to learn about color in InDesign is to watch the movies in order, from one chapter to the next. Technically, you could jump around from movie to movie and you'd pick up some useful tips that way, but you'll ultimately miss out on the bigger picture.
