Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
When it comes to Adobe InDesign, we're all beginners again. Yes, InDesign adopts many familiar Photoshop/Illustrator tools and desktop elements. But for those leaving the QuarkXPress nest, there's still a lot to learn—and Mastering Adobe InDesign covers almost all of it.

Start with a detailed look at InDesign file management; the Desktop; and how to work with text, type, images, grids, guides, rulers, and frames. Next, before you go any further, discover how to correct mistakes and recover from disasters (including reverting to the last saved version, and using InDesign's automatic recovery feature.

Master printing (including some neat tricks like printing thumbnails and using In-RIP trapping; then discover InDesign time-savers like type styles and object libraries. There's a full chapter on advanced type control (one of the many areas where InDesign excels); another on document management; another on exporting to PDF, and yet another on exporting to the World Wide Web.

The book's five detailed appendices provide overviews of Adobe InDesign scripting using Visual Basic (in Windows) or AppleScript (on the Mac); handy tables of keyboard shortcuts comparing InDesign, QuarkXPress, and PageMaker; expert color management and calibration recommendations; and more.

We only have one small nit to pick with Mastering Adobe inDesign. It would've been nice to find a bit more insight into how well InDesign does with importing and printing complex QuarkXPress files. But much of that information is only now becoming available, as designersgainexperience with the conversion process. And that's our only gripe—which means this book is a definite winner.
