Description

In this collection of lessons we will learn basic terms, definitions, and workflows for working in InDesign. We will start off by learning how we can generate vector-based graphics, right inside of InDesign. We will then take a look at how we can bring assets that were generated in other applications into InDesign for use in our layouts. After that, we will learn things like how we can create and format text, how to quickly manage the pages in our document, and finally we will learn how we can add some basic interactivity to our InDesign layout. To wrap this project up, we will learn how to save work and collect all related assets so they can be passed to another individual. Software required: Adobe InDesign CS5.

Introduction and Project Overview
Introducing the Beginner's Guide to InDesign, a fundamental learning series brought to you by Digital-Tutors, the world's largest online CG training library, and an Adobe authorized training center. My name is Eddie, and I'll be giving you an introductory look into InDesign, so you can learn essential terms and definitions, and build a solid foundation in computer graphics. We'll start off by learning how we can generate vector-based graphics right inside of InDesign. We'll then take a look at how we can bring assets that were generated in other applications into InDesign for use inside our layouts. After that we'll learn things like how we can create and format text, how we can quickly manage the pages in our document, and finally we'll learn how we can add some basic interactivity to our InDesign layouts. To wrap this project up we'll learn how to save work and collect all related assets, so they can be passed on to another individual. This series of step-by-step videos were developed with artists new to InDesign in mind, so we'll be moving at a steady, easy to follow pace, making sure you understand terms and basic techniques. To view more beginner's guide courses, visit our library where you'll find the largest collection of free, high-quality CG training videos. So let's go ahead and get started with our next lesson, where we'll learn what exactly InDesign is used for.
