Bespoke InDesign CS6 2 Day Quark User Overview

InDesign Logo and QuarkXPress Course Delegates

Adobe InDesign CS6 is the page layout application of choice for many users. It contains a host of advanced text, colour, print and layout features not found in any other application that can be applied to text and objects. It also boasts an interface similar to Adobe’s other leading design applications and so is intuitive for users of these applications.

Further, Adobe InDesign CS6 integrates seamlessly with the other Adobe applications and can include native Photoshop and Illustrator files, and in CS6 you can now centralise your whole workflow through Adobe Bridge. PDF output, XML, and export to GoLive output are also supported, making InDesign the perfect tool for re-purposing content.

This course is aimed at experienced Quark users looking to develop skills for InDesign as an extra tool or for migration purposes. The key features of InDesign will be covered geared towards your previous knowledge of QuarkXPress. Over the 2 days we also create a print-ready version of a publication that you work on, to ensure that when you have finished the training you are able to cover all aspects of document production you are likely to work on.

(This course is also available as a 1 day course which covers most of the basics of the 2 day course but allows less time for experimenting and creating completed designs.)


Course Target Audience and delegate prerequisites

This course is intended for graphic designers, creative professionals, print professionals, publishers, pre-press professionals, and marketing communications professionals.

You will need basic PC or Mac skills, including a solid understanding of a computer's operating system (Windows or Mac OS). You will also need to know how to launch a program, create and save files, and copy files from CDs and other media.

The trainer had an extremely high level of knowledge about InDesign. He was very thorough in all his explanations and clear when providing any instructions. I feel very confident in the information I have been given and now feel able to go away and use InDesign. Excellent trainer.
