    InDesign Locate Colour

    On all the InDesign courses we look at colour in depth especially with regard to accuracy and one of the things often mentioned is how to replace one colour with another. As this pops up a lot we thought it might be a good idea to write an InDesign Locate Colour Tutorial on that very thing.

    Pinterest – Greta Powell Training

    Posted on 3rd July 2021 by Greta Powell

    Pinterest – Greta Powell Training

     

    Pinterest - Greta Powell TrainingWe recently revived the Greta Powell Training Pinterest page.

     

    The thought process behind that being that the examples we show sometimes on the site would actually be much better represented visually on Pinterest than here. So there we have it – a revival in progress.

     

    Hopefully once everything is completely back to normal we will be back out there delivering loads of Onsite InDesign Training Courses and posting madly to Pinterest to show what we’ve been up to.

    Pinterest and Greta Powell Training Examples

    Some time ago, for the life of me cannot remember exactly when but definitely pre Covid we ran an Introduction to InDesign Training Course. It was onsite in Derbyshire and was probably the last one we ran before lockdown. The majority of our training courses are customised and this was for a company who wanted to design their three monthly brochure as a template on the InDesign Course.

     

    The idea being that once the delegate (it was a one to one session) had learnt the software and designed the brochure on the course then she would be able to update it with images and text once quickly on a three monthly basis.

     

    The Design Project

    Having gathered all the assets prior to the course and making use of stock images from the Internet for the course itself we set up the brochure from scratch. Our client opted for an A4 landscape design with a minimal look which actually worked so well with their fonts which were all Sans Serif. As with the fonts the colours were also taken from the companies own design guidelines and everything was then worked into the layout over the course.

     

    The image you see to the left (or on Pinterest for that matter) is the end result. Consisting of eight pages in total (front and back cover left out from this screen shot) this template will be so easy to work with in the future. All the client will need to do is drop new graphics into the graphics box and the same with text. 

     

    Text Styles

    When the text is dropped in or rather placed in the text frames it will immediately adapt the type style in that particular frame. We set up paragraph and character styles and then mapped them to the text boxes so really apart from dropping in the text very little needs to be done in the future.

    Microsoft Teams & Creative Cloud Assets

    Microsoft Teams & Creative Cloud Assets

    Microsoft Teams & Creative Cloud Assets are one of the more powerful ways in which Greta Powell Training is delivering live instructor online training. It has to be said Microsoft Teams has been a god send. We’re now starting to see some of the main questions delegates ask prior to booking online training with the main ones being how do I use my software in conjunction with Microsoft Teams.

     

    As online training is new to many we thought it might be an idea to write a series of blog posts on Microsoft Teams and the online training process covering some of the questions. We will also be recording a full Microsoft Teams tutorial which will be online in the next few days. 

     

    Teams is not just about chat and screen sharing it also provides a myriad of other opportunities such as……………………………………
