Adobe InDesign - Beginners

An introduction to Adobe's page layout and design programme. Good computer skills essential.


This introduction to Adobe's InDesign program will cover: setting preferences; understanding the frame-based approach through exploration of frame creation, properties and use; placing and editing text (with styles); placing graphics; defining and applying colour and print considerations.

By the end of the workshop, you'll have been introduced to InDesign. You'll be shown the program and the main features of its desktop, and then be taken through how to create and work with the main publishing items (text and graphics) in order to create your own publication. 

Note: All computer courses are run in the school computer labs and you are required to use the school desktops for the duration of the course (you are not able to use your own laptop).  Some of the courses may require you to login onto the network. 

By the end of the course you'll be able to:
• Describe the features of InDesign and how to work with them
• Create text frames, connect text frames and format text
• Create shapes and frames and format them
• Import pictures into publications
• Use rulers, guides and the pasteboard to lay out pages
• Finish off, check and then print
