Overview

Adobe Press has completely overhauled its best-selling book, Production Essentials to include more illustrated procedures for producing quality digital graphic projects. Covering all of the Adobe prepress and production software, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, PageMaker, InDesign, and GoLive, Print Production Essentials provides an extensive ÒcookbookÓ style approach, where readers learn how to combine assorted Adobe applications and features to get top results. Files that look stunning when sent to the printer can come back looking less so if the trapping, color separation, or line art is off. Readers will find this book invaluable in helping them to achieve the printed results they want from the digital files they create. This book is geared towards designers who are producing their own files for publication, service bureau employees who want to improve their file-handling knowledge, and anyone involved in creating and printing files on paper.
