In case you missed the latest memo, publishing is rapidly changing from analog to digital. For designers this means embracing new technologies like eBooks and tablets. Fortunately the tools are still largely the same. Over the last several years Adobe has been grooming industry publishing standard InDesign to be the onramp to the digital future.
In this all-day workshop, designer and Adobe Certified Expert Scott Citron will teach you how to tease digital publications out of InDesign’s current release, CS 5.5. The first half of the day will explore the important new features in 5.5. These include things like working with multiple page sizes, the Gridify and Gap tools, Live Corners, Live Captions, Spanning Columns, the updated Layers panel, and a host of other improvements.
In the afternoon session, Scott will teach you how to take a static print document and repurpose it into an interactive publication for the iPad. Here you’ll learn about the Overlay Creator and Folio Panels and how these tools are leveraged when creating digital magazines.
This is a hands-on class, so you’ll need a laptop running Adobe InDesign CS 5.5 for Mac or Windows. If you don’t own a copy you can download the free 30-day demo using this link: http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/index.cfm?product=indesign.
