InDesign CC Basics 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 features, InDesign is the ideal application for graphic designers who don't want to limit their creativity by the capabilities of their software. Thanks to its intuitive application and easy-to-understand interface, InDesign is also very accessible for beginners and less intensive users.

You will learn the differences between RGB and CMYK. What to pay attention to when choosing a colour for the web, print and house styles.

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

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

We had indicated in advance what our learning goals were and sent some examples of what we would at least like to make up after attending the course. This has definitely worked! We have been given a clear explanation of everything and also received a lot of tips, which makes it easier and better for us to get started with Indesign! I can recommend this course to anyone who works with Indesign." - Assessment: 8.3
