We will show you how to apply consistent styling to text, create an eye-catching front cover, and publish the final product ready for anyone with a tablet or eReader to read.

The 1-day Introduction course will enhance your existing knowledge of Adobe InDesign CC by focusing on ePub, which is the digital-publishing format used to produce content for a wide variety of eReaders such as Kindle, iPad, iPhone, Sony Reader, Nook, and many more. We will show you how to take your existing layouts and publish them for these devices.
