We'll get started by learning about the RGB and CMYK color models, which are color models every designer must understand. From here, we will begin learning about several topics that are specific to preparing jobs for commercial printing.

Next, we'll move on and learn about topics like spot color and process color, the appearance of black, overprinting and trapping, as well as managing our ink levels. We'll wrap up this course by learning how to prepare a press-ready PDF in InDesign. After completing this course, you will have a good understanding of the concepts, tools, and techniques used to prepare print-ready documents in Adobe InDesign. Software required: InDesign CS6.
