InDesign CC basic course

InDesign is the standard for page design and typography for all forms of publication: from books and brochures to digital magazines and iPad apps. With its many powerful tools and functions, InDesign is the ideal application for graphic designers who do not want to let their creativity be limited by the possibilities of their software. Thanks to its intuitive application and clear interface, InDesign is also very accessible for beginners and less intensive users.

Colour settings:
You learn the differences between RGB and CMYK. What to look out for when choosing a colour for the web, printed matter and house styles.

Resolution and DPI settings:
You will learn what to look out for when images have to be suitable for printing and/or the web. How to optimise them and do's and don'ts

File formats:
You will learn the important properties of the various image formats (jpg, gif, tiff, psd). This way you will soon know everything about which files you keep as high quality source files and which ones you can best use as end products for print or the web.

During the three-day InDesign CC Basic course you will learn to use all the basic functions properly and you will be introduced to the most impressive possibilities of InDesign.

"Learned a lot in three days! It is a 'different' form of learning because you are also working a lot in your own book with your own assignments. But the advantage is that you do all the work yourself (and therefore pick it up better), and you can work at your own pace. Because I already had some experience with the programme, I was able to go through some things quickly." - Rating: 10.0
