Adobe InDesign CS6: Advanced

Video Description

Adobe InDesign CS6: Advanced picks up where the Beginner course left off. Long-time VTC author Brian White introduces you to InDesign's advanced features which will take your knowledge of the software to the next level. The course begins with a thorough look at text, graphic, and special-effect features before progressing through the creation of tables and long documents. Brian then shifts into InDesign's powerful interactive features. Starting with the new PDR interactive forms, the course then covers interactive PDF & SWF. The chapter on the Digital Publishing Suite shows you how to get a publication created for the iPad. The course then concludes with an introduction to e-pub documents.
