Adobe® PageMaker® 7.0 Classroom in a Book®

Book Description

You've added Adobe PageMaker7.0 to your digital studio (or plan to). Now pick up the fastest, easiest, most comprehensive way to master the award-winning page-layout program--Adobe PageMaker 7.0 Classroom in a Book. This bestselling, hands-on workbook and CD package delivers something no other guide can: Adobe's official training series, developed by the company's own experts and tested in its classrooms and labs.

Each chapter is a self-paced lesson, based on real-world design projects. And each project builds on the skills you learn in previous lessons. For example, you may start by creating a single-page, black-and-white flyer, then quickly progress to more challenging projects, such as designing professional-quality letterhead, an eight-page CD booklet, a sports catalog, a Web-based newsletter, and more. Along the way, you'll learn to take advantage of version 7.0's new features, including its seamless integration with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, its ability to merge text and images from database and spreadsheet programs, and the way it now allows you to view and create PDFs, as well as open and edit QuarkXPress documents.
