    Adobe InDesign PDF Interactive Course

    Training seems to go round in circles – one month it’s full of Photoshop Training another its InDesign Courses and May has been no different. It has been full with InDesign Interactive PDF courses. I seemed to have travelled from the heart of the Midlands, up to Yorkshire, down to London and just about everywhere else in between this last month.

     

    So what is InDesign PDF and what are the main reasons for people requesting training in it.

     

    As with most things in life the main reason people learn PDF is to save money and there are huge financial benefits to sending your company literature out either by email or via a link online. Straightaway the benefits are obvious –

     

    Financial savings with PDF

    The most of obvious savings are the huge postage costs immediately slashed and your paper and ink bills also slashed.

     

    What is a PDF?

    Using PDF means you can create and distribute your own digital documents. These can be as simple as plain text with links for navigating the document or creating and designing a more creative interactive document such as a newsletter, brochure or slideshow. Working with InDesign gives you the ability to create very visually appealing and professionally presented .PDF documents for export.

     

    InDesign PDF Interactive Training

    The course has just been updated to reflect the ever changing and growing requirements of some clients and amongst other elements you will learn how to:

     

    • Create & Prepare an InDesign document for PDF Export
    • Interactive Panel
    • Add Navigation, Buttons & Hyperlinks

    Illustrator Tutorial – Crop Tool

    Posted on 7th May 2018 by Greta Powell

    Illustrator Tutorial, Crop Tool

    One of the questions I get asked on Illustrator Training Courses is ‘How do I crop an Image in Illustrator’?  Quite simply in earlier versions the answer was you can’t. We used clipping masks and workarounds in those early versions. 

     

    However that’s all changed in Illustrator CC because now it comes fully equipped with a crop tool

    Adobe Lightroom in Education

    Posted on 26th March 2018 by Greta Powell

    Adobe Lightroom Training – for schools

    It was recently a great pleasure to deliver an Adobe Lightroom Course combined with an Adobe Photoshop course to a school in Lincolnshire. This was for the Photography and Media departments who were particularly interested in looking into Lightroom CC to add features to their school curriculum later this year. The approach to this Adobe Lightroom Training was quite simple – a basic overview of its tools and tabs and how it could be adapted for straightforward use for their students.

     

    There were three people on the Adobe Lightroom Training in Lincolnshire and with differing skill-sets and areas of interest it was decided to split the day up into two with the Adobe Photoshop Training in the morning and Lightroom Course in the afternoon.

    Training Reviews

    Although I specialise in onsite Adobe Training for companies, teams and individuals across the UK another string to the bow is delivering courses for training companies. I thought it might be helpful to include a few of the comments made elsewhere about my training courses. 

     

    Whatever the requirement or however obscure the training request please get in touch to discuss how I can assist with the Adobe Training delivery.
