Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Adobe InDesign, QuarkXPress's page layout competitor, can integrate with other Adobe applications such as Photoshop, Acrobat, and Illustrator. With new features like the ability to import directly transparent image files from other Adobe applications and XML support, version 2.0 has spawned several guides to its use; public libraries with older books should be sure to upgrade. Visual QuickStart's extensive screenshots, clear instructions, and valuable tips make it a winner. An appendix lists keyboard shortcuts for both Windows and Mac users, and step-by-step explanations help InDesign novices quickly accomplish common tasks. Classroom includes self-paced tutorials that lead beginning users through common projects. Along with the CD's lesson files, review questions and answers in each chapter make this a useful self-study resource.

    Good for learning the basics...

    If you need to quickly learn the basics of InDesign and have a background in desktop publishing, this book is great. It's also a handy little reference.

    Barely scratches the surface

    If you want an indepth look at inDesign, this isn't it. While this guide is good if you only have a day or two to learn inDesign, the new Real World inDesign delves more deeply into the useful, and time saving, attributes of in Design. The graphics in Cohen's book are creepy (there's a Wizard of Oz theme throughout) and do not always illustrate her point well. For almost a year, this was the only non-Adobe book out there, but now that Real World inDesign is out, spend a little more on that book -- you'll get a whole lot more out of it.
