Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Most professional designers and design shops use several Adobe programs, not just one. It’s not enough for them to master individual program features: Increasingly, they need to know how the components of Adobe’s suite work together in production environments. Using that knowledge, they can work faster, become more competitive, and deliver more creative work. Building on that insight, Ted Padova and Kelly L. Murdock have completely reimagined the way “graphics design suite” books work.

Their Adobe Creative Suite 2 Bible focuses almost entirely on workflow and process. It’s organized not around individual programs, but around the tasks designers need to perform on a day-to-day basis.

If you’re new to thinking in these terms, worry not: Padova and Murdock carefully introduce the ideas behind design workflows. And, early on, they offer a thorough, step-by-step introduction to production and color-managed workflows.

Next, they carefully introduce Adobe’s “glue” programs, Version Cue and Adobe Bridge; present best practices for managing PDF files; and offer insights into features shared across the entire suite (for instance, core techniques for working with objects, images, and text).

Padova and Murdock spend an entire section on a topic that has bedeviled designers for years: integrating Microsoft Office content into design workflows. If you’ve ever dealt with this, you’re thinking: Thank goodness, finally someone’s taken this on!

You’ll find chapters on creating review sessions, designing and modifying layouts, exporting print designs to web and electronic environments, working with XML, protecting work with Digital Rights Management, creating interactive documents, replicating CD-ROMs, handling digital prepress, and more. We told you this one was different. It’s also indispensable. Bill Camarda, from the February 2006 Read Only
