Nothing speeds up learning like personal training from a skilled tutor. Adobe InDesign CS2 One-on-One delivers that invaluable learning experience by giving you the closest thing possible to private lessons with author Deke McClelland, a world-renowned expert on digital graphics and design. You can proceed at your own pace, working on relevant, real-world projects, while mastering fundamental and advanced concepts, theories, techniques, and best practices for making the most of InDesign. With over two hours of Deke's professional instruction and advice, and 600 full-color images, diagrams, and screenshots to illustrate every key step, you'll soon be on the fast track to becoming a real InDesign expert.

This comprehensive multimedia training solution shows you how to:

  • Create professional-looking documents with InDesign's powerful text and graphic tools
  • Import text from a word processor, move and scale existing text frames, and check spelling
  • Use the line, pen, and geometric shape tools to draw complex graphic objects
  • Apply fill and stroke, specify process and spot colors, and design custom rules
  • Use the new Adobe Bridge to organize and manage your digital assets
  • Import and modify layered artwork from Photoshop and Illustrator
  • Create inline graphics and anchored objects that move automatically with your text from one page to the next
  • Create, edit, and link paragraph styles, complete with nested character styles
  • Apply a sequence of style sheets to format an entire document in one operation
  • Build object styles with embedded paragraph styles in order to format entire frames at a time
  • Use master pages to automate repeating page features
  • Automatically generate a table of contents
  • Compose a fully interactive document-with bookmarks, hyperlinks, buttons, sounds, and movies-and export your creation to a PDF file that can be played on most computers

When you're finished with Adobe InDesign CS2 One-on-One, you'll use InDesign smarter, faster, more creatively, and more efficiently than you ever thought possible.

"The combination of hands-on lessons and video demonstrations is invaluable. Deke really brings InDesign to life." -David Blatner, coauthor of Real World Adobe InDesign CS2

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Moving to InDesign CS2? There's never been a better hands-on InDesign course than Deke McClelland's Adobe InDesign CS2 One-on-One.

We've raved about McClelland's books for years, especially the One-on-One series he's created for his own O'Reilly imprint, Deke Press. (If you have any interest whatsoever in Photoshop CS2, you owe it to yourself to check out Adobe Photoshop CS2 One-on-One.)

McClelland's new InDesign tutorial is stunningly rich and deep. Nearly every step of every procedure imparts more knowledge than you expect. One moment, he's telling you how far you can get with automated tools, and when you have to start working manually. Another moment, he's revealing a super-convenient scaling technique and a "secret" way to measure objects you've scaled. Throughout, he's pointing out behaviors that might surprise you until he's explained them. (Which he proceeds to do, masterfully, in a voice that can't be imitated, and is a joy to learn from.)

When we say "voice," that's not just a metaphor from a creative writing class. McClelland's voice also comes through loud and clear in two hours of superbly crafted nearly-HD quality DVD video. All of it intimately integrated with the book's content and projects.

Speaking of projects: These, too, are deep and rich, surprisingly representative of real professional assignments. They'll carry you from the basics (creating, flowing, and formatting text) through working with long documents; trapping, overprinting, and preflighting; creating interactive PDFs; even using XML content.

If you've waited to learn InDesign, the wait has paid off: Learning it is now officially a pleasure. Bill Camarda, from the May 2006 Read Only

Meet the Author

Electronic publishing pioneer Deke McClelland is a popular lecturer on Adobe Photoshop and the larger realm of computer graphics and design. He has hosted the interactive "Video Workshop" CD that shipped with Photoshop Versions 7, CS, and CS2, as well as hundreds of hours of tutorial-style video training for industry leaders lynda.com and Total Training. In addition to his video work, Deke has written 84 books translated into 24 languages, with more than 4 million copies in print.

One of the most award-winning writers in the technology market, Deke received the Benjamin Franklin Award for Best Computer Book in 1989. Since then, he has garnered more than 20 honors, including seven independent citations from the Computer Press Association. In 2002, he was inducted into the Photoshop Hall of Fame.

In 2004 Deke created the One-on-Oneā„¢ book series, which uses video, step-by-step exercises, and hundreds of full-color illustrations to provide readers with the closest thing possible to private instruction from a recognized expert. These ambitious, self-paced guides include the bestselling Adobe Photoshop CS2 One-on-One and Adobe InDesign CS2 One-on-One. Late in 2006 Deke teamed up with vanguard online training company lynda.com to bring the One-on-One training strategy to a line of video products, beginning with Photoshop CS3 Beta One-on-One Preview, the first series available for the public beta of Photoshop CS3. In addition to the full 20-plus hour Photoshop CS3 One-on-One, his plans include Illustrator One-on-One and InDesign One-on-One. Among Deke's current lynda.com videos are Photoshop Elements 5 Essentials and the #1 ranked Photoshop CS2 Channels and Masks (available for immediate viewing at www.lynda.com/deke).

Deke is an Adobe Certified Expert, a member of the PhotoshopWorld Instructor Dream Team, and a regular speaker for the Photoshop Fling cruise seminars. Deke lives in Boulder, Colorado with his wife and two super-powered boys.
