Adobe Indesign CC Course

Indesign is a professional desktop publishing tool for serious designers. It has excellent PDF support, strong typographic controls, table creation and import, expanded OpenType support, good EPS previews, unique transparency controls, XML export and long-document features. It is also packed with illustrator-style drawing functions by which designers can compose creative contents and save time from switching back and forth with other design softwares. Working seamlessly with Photoshop and Illustrator makes Indesign even a more productive tool and can streamline the workflow.

This Advanced InDesign course provides the InDesign user the ability to sharpen their skills and move their knowledge of InDesign to an advanced level. Using the skills learned in the InDesign I course, students will create complex documents and work with a variety of palettes and tools to further understand the capabilities of this high-end design application. This course is designated for the graphic professionals who are already experienced in Adobe InDesign and need more in-depth knowledge of the application and the management of complex documents.
