Description

PowerPoint has been the standard for creating presentation documents for years. If you've ever been frustrated with the look of the files created there, or if you've ever had a PowerPoint presentation change once it was moved to another computer, then this course is for you. This course will start slow, so if you've never used InDesign before, don't worry: we won't leave you behind. First, we'll see how to work with InDesign pages instead of PowerPoint slides. Next, we'll learn how to create vector shapes that can be used as graphics. From here, we'll learn how to create and format text to fit with our presentation, as well as how we can bring in images or graphics that were created in other applications. To wrap this training up, we'll learn how to export our interactive files out of InDesign. As a bonus, we'll learn how to get your flash-based animations to show up in your interactive PDF files. By the end of this training, you will not only see the benefit to creating your presentation files in InDesign, but you'll also be excited to get started doing just that. Software required: InDesign CC v9.2.
