In Adobe InDesign CS3: Video Training Book, David Blatner walks readers through all the essentials of this powerful layout program, sharing his techniques for creating compelling content. The lessons cover all the basic principles of InDesign CS3, from getting to know the workspace and tools to using new features such as object effects (including feathered gradients), finer transparency controls, table styles, new export options, and enhancements for better productivity. The projects walk you through the real-world process of creating documents, working with text and objects, applying formatting and styles, placing images, managing color, and outputting files. Exercise files that accompany the training videos allow readers to follow along and learn at their own speed.

This new series offers creative professionals the tools they need to get up to speed quickly and affordably--a Video Training Book is a great alternative to a weekend crash course!
