Indesign Tutorial with MattPosted: November 17, 2015
Having not used Adobe Indesign since I was a first year in Carmarthen school of art and design over 3 years, I thought it would be useful to remind myself of how it works.
Matt talked us through creating a A3 leaflet using text from an online article and stock images the we had to download. This tutorial covered the basics but essentially everything needed to create a standard Indesign document.
He showed us how to set up a document
How to create paragraph styles e.g type style for the main title, sub titles and main body text.
How to create multiple text columns
Shaping text around an image using anchor points, kind of like in Adobe Illustrator
and how the A-master page works and controls what goes on all the pages e.g. pages number.
Plus an number of shortcuts and other useful things
