    Adobe InDesign PDF Interactive Course

    Training seems to go round in circles – one month it’s Photoshop Training another InDesign Courses and May has been no different except its been the Adobe InDesign Interactive PDF course that’s proving popular. These courses have been delivered onsite at clients premises from the heart of the Midlands, up to Yorkshire, down to London and just about everywhere else in between this last month.

     

    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?

    Dynamic documents or 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. 

     

    In InDesign you can create two types of PDF, one for print and one for interactive content such as rich media, buttons and forms. Adobe InDesign is far more versatile than is realised and can publish both interactive books and presentations.

    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

    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.
