InDesign is quickly becoming the industry-standard software for laying out and printing documents. With all the features of a graphics application and a word processor wrapped into one, InDesign is a complex piece of software that can be confusing and hard to learn - unless you have a true expert show you the way!

In this 4-hour tutorial by veteran technical author and InDesign Pro Donna Baker, you'll learn how to use the InDesign workspace to format text, add images and photos, and manage objects on a page to create a professional layout, every time. You'll also learn how to use InDesign's built in drawing tools to add color, strokes, and gradients to your project. Once you're document's finished, you'll see how to export your document for printing in PDF and other formats.

This is a comprehensive tutorial, but you don't need to watch the entire program. Use the interactive menus and keyword search features to quickly find topics of interest - that's the essence of Nonlinear Educating!
