InDesign Class Conclusion
Before beginning this class, I used InDesign on a few projects. I created booklets for class projects. I learned the basics of this program; how to add/delete pages, how to connect one text box to the next, text wrapping and a few other basics. I have used PhotoShop and Illustrator for many years and InDesign has alot of similarities.
However, after taking this class, I now know how much more InDesign can do, especially with working with and manipulating text. When I work with text, I generally change the font, size, style, etc. as I need to while I'm doing the project. I now see how much time can be saved by using and saving the styles you use more often.
When I worked with InDesign before, I would just drop in a picture and then manipulate it according to my needs. Now, I know it's a much better idea to use the frame tool, then you have more control on what can be done with the image.
I really like working with templates. I usually just duplicate a previous newsletter (or whatever project I'm working on), then delete the old info and add the new. But using templates works to much better and a lot quicker.
This class was great, I learned a lot.
