With Adobe Certified Expert trainer Mark Gatter at your side, you'll learn ingenious solutions to common color printing problems, without having to go through the trial and error yourself! In addition to his software expertise, Mark brings his extensive commercial printing background to bear and offers you genuinely useful tips on how to work optimally with colors. These tips will certainly keep your print jobs on budget, on time and hassle-free!

Mark covers everything from the somewhat cryptic "registration" and "paper" colors built in to InDesign right down to creating your own "warm" and "cool" black colors. These "custom blacks" will serve to pump up your basic default black color to avoid streaks but without exceeding the ink limit on offset printing presses.

No course on color is complete without a discussion of Pantone colors. Mark's excellent advice on working with Pantone colors and converting them to CMYK colors when needed will help you save significant amounts of time and money on your commercial "four color" printing jobs.

To round things off, Mark packs in the added value by giving you an in-depth look at both the mechanics of InDesign's all-important layer system, but also the object hierarchy within individual layers. He then ties it in with the "color" theme by showing you how to color code your layers beyond what comes with InDesign by default.

By the end of this value-packed course, you'll have new but "tried and true" industry pro color tips and tricks under your belt that you can immediately apply to your real-world print jobs!
