Introduction to InDesign

Adobe InDesign is an integral component of the Adobe Creative Suite and an application that touches many kinds of media. This industry-standard application functions wonderfully as a layout and publishing program for posters, brochures, newspapers, magazines, and books. It can be used alone or in conjunction with work created in other Adobe programs such as Illustrator and Photoshop.

Would you like your print product to look less like an essay and more like a dynamic visual aid? AdobeInDesign can help.

InDesign provides the flexibility of Photoshop, and the easy text manipulation of Illustrator with publishing and printing tools that make layouts easier to visualize and change. InDesign allows you to drag in and place photos, illustrations, and materials from other programs to create interesting, compelling layouts, and correctly paginated materials for print.

This workshop will cover an overview of the InDesign toolbox, including:

  • How to import and use files from other sources
  • How to integrate images and text in single and multi-page layouts
  • An overview of colour, image, and type selection for various print purposes
  • How to set bleed, trim and other printer's marks in preparation for printing

Should you fail to withdraw 48+ hours in advance, thereby preventing your colleagues on the waitlist from filling in your spot, your library account will be charged $10 per missed workshop.  Please note, it is your responsibility to sign next to your name on the attendance sheet for each workshop session.  A blank signature spot will result in a penalty charge.
