Overview

Adobe InDesign is widely regarded as the page layout/publishing program for the new millennium. It gives you precise creative control over the layout and design of your pages and documents, and its latest release, InDesign CS, is becoming wildly popular with users of many backgrounds, levels, and needs—from small DTP shops to graphics professionals to large corporations.Unlike any other InDesign book, the colorful Adobe InDesign CS One-on-One delivers a one-of-a-kind learning experience much like having private lessons with author Deke McClelland, an Adobe Certified Expert and professional trainer with nearly 20 years of experience.There's no better master than McClelland to show you how to master InDesign. He's a highly regarded expert and frequent lecturer on Adobe Photoshop, computer graphics, and design. He hosts the interactive Best of Photoshop CD that ships with Photoshop, and he has written more than 70 books. One of the most award-winning writers in the business, McClellenad is a member of the PhotoshopWorld Instructor Dream Team and a contributing editor for Macworld and Photoshop User magazines. In 2002, he was inducted into the National Association of Photoshop Professional's Photoshop Hall of Fame.Under McClelland's seasoned guidance, you will proceed at your own pace through twelve step-by-step lessons packed with entertaining and informative real-world projects. More than 500 full-color photos, diagrams, and screen shots walk you through InDesign's many features, and multiple-choice quizzes following each lesson let you test your knowledge—and serve as an exceptionally practical tool for classroom instructors. Extra credit sections deliver tips and tricks for tapping into InDesign's most powerful capabilities.This unique, hands-on book comes with two hours of video instruction (hosted by McClelland himself) on CD to get you working with InDesign right away, building relevant, real-world projects while mastering fundamental and advanced concepts, theory, best practices, and techniques for making the most of InDesign—to make the most of your page designs.

This is the second in a series of highly-visual, four-color titles that combine step-by-step lessons with two hours of video instruction. The first book, "Adobe Photoshop CS One-on-One," broke new ground with its innovative format. This book follows in its footsteps, showing readers how to master InDesign, the popular page layout/publishing program that's quickly becoming the market leader.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
One great thing about InDesign is its consistency with Photoshop and your other Adobe tools. InDesign now has something else in common with Photoshop: You can learn it from the legendary Deke McClelland -- and have a great time doing it.

McClelland’s new Adobe InDesign CS One-on-One combines a supremely friendly full-color tutorial with two hours of live instruction on TV-quality digital video. You’ll master InDesign CS through 12 modular lessons, each taught via step-by-step exercises that add up to a very realistic finished project.

This isn’t just “cookbook” stuff, either. If you’ve ever read McClelland, you know he’ll tell you the “why” along with the “how” -- and he knows them both, backward and forward. Bill Camarda

Bill Camarda is a consultant, writer, and web/multimedia content developer. His 15 books include Special Edition Using Word 2003 and Upgrading & Fixing Networks for Dummies, Second Edition.
