Overview

With its ever-tightening integration with Adobe's full suite of creative products and its own increasingly sophisticated feature set, InDesign is winning legions of Quark and FrameMaker converts. If you’re among them–or if you've decided to sidestep those programs altogether–you need this book. In these pages, the Adobe Creative Team uses a series of project-based lessons to provide a thorough grounding in the InDesign school of page design. You'll find step-by-step lessons in InDesign CS2 fundamentals plus plenty of the advanced tips and techniques you need to take your page designs to the next level. The workbook-style format includes self-paced lessons followed by review questions to reinforce the knowledge and a CD with all of the files required to complete the book's projects. Throughout, special focus is given to the features new to InDesign CS: the new Adobe Bridge file browser; object styles, snippets, smarter text handling, the ability to hide or show layers in Photoshop and PDF files, and much more.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Moving to InDesign CS2? Want to take full advantage of its productivity and workflow capabilities? Learn InDesign systematically and hands-on, not by trial and error. Learn it from the people who created it: Adobe.

If you've used any of the titles in Adobe's Classroom in a Book series, you know what to expect: modular, learn-at-your-own pace lessons, carefully edited for exceptional clarity, with well-produced sample files.

You'll start at the absolute beginning: setting up documents, working with frames, text, and typography. You'll find extensive coverage of color; an introduction to InDesign's powerful new object styles; chapters on graphics, tables, and transparency, and more. Plus, two of InDesign CS2's most powerful new capabilities get chapter-length treatment: XML tagging, and Adobe Bridge integration.

Set aside time to work through this book, and you'll be rewarded with true mastery. Bill Camarda, from the September 2005 Read Only
