This course covers all of the more commonly used features of Adobe InDesign so that attendees can navigate the software and use InDesign's tools to create well-designed professional documents.
Whether you are using Adobe InDesign to create brochures, flyers, bid documents or any kind of printed or electronic document, this course will give you the skills you need.
You will learn how to set out documents, work with colour and incorporate text and images into documents. The course will cover the use of styles and master pages that allow you to format content uniformly, layout features that help you to build alternate size configurations of your document, and various panels that enable you to easily customise both text and graphics.
This course is suitable for anyone using InDesign CS5, CS6 or CC. If attending in a QA centre then the course will be delivered using InDesign CS6.
