Learn InDesign CS6 at your own speed
(PRWEB) August 23, 2012
Video training provider InfiniteSkills Inc. has announced its new Adobe InDesign CS6 Tutorial Video course targeted toward beginners, which includes 119 lessons on professional layout techniques for print production and Web formats.
The 13.5-hour training video course covers the fundamentals of professional layout and new features unique to InDesign CS6. Using centralized hands-on examples such as annual reports, newsletters and multi-chapter books, this InDesign training series demonstrates publishing techniques and workflows in real time, with narrated tips and assistance from author Jeff Witchel.
Jeff Witchel is an Adobe Certified Instructor and Certified Expert for InDesign with over 19 years of experience in computer-based layout and graphic design. After more than a decade as a creative professional in advertising and publishing, he has become a leading independent educator in layout and design. Witchel has led personal training seminars for leading ad firms, and has authored articles, books and tutorials on Adobe InDesign and Illustrator.
The InfiniteSkills Adobe InDesign CS6 Tutorial Video Course begins with an introduction to the program's updated graphical user interface, with tips on learning and customizing the program's primary tools based on frequency of use. From here, the training moves into the basics of layout, focusing on proper measurement and developing pages based on preconfigured and custom designs.
The next sections of the course focus on the ability of InDesign to format and structure text, from the fundamentals of placing text blocks on a page to creating paragraph styles that can standardize the appearance of specific lines and sections throughout longer documents and books.
After going over tips for layout on long documents, the InDesign CS6 tutorials explore the use of graphics and color, with lessons on transparency and special effects. Finally, the InDesign training course offers tips on printing, including preflight profiles for professional publishing as well as useful guidelines for creating booklets from desktop printers.
"Jeff's years of experience in layout have shaped this course into more than just a walkthrough of InDesign's features and tools," said Chris Johns, content coordinator for InfiniteSkills. "Viewers will also gain a perspective in designing documents that people will naturally respond to, and follow from beginning to end."
To demonstrate the program's newer interactive capabilities, the last two chapters of the InDesign CS6 training highlight the program's multimedia and eBook publishing tools. Topics include adding hyperlinks and buttons, and preparing documents for full compatibility with the EPUB2 and EPUB3 formats.
The full InfiniteSkills Adobe InDesign CS6 Tutorial Video course retails for $99.95. The complete training package includes accessible work files, and both the downloadable and DVD-ROM editions of the training can be viewed on Mac and Windows computers. Purchase options are available worldwide, with free shipping throughout the United States and Canada.
