In this Advanced InDesign CS5 training video tutorial, Adobe Certified Instructor Jeff Witchel builds on his InDesign CS5 fundamentals training course.  You will get more in-depth with the features and functions of this powerful layout program, which is no longer used just for prepress documents anymore!

Once you have the fundamentals down, you will need to know how to get further into the features of InDesign.  This computer software training course will get you there, starting with customizing your workspace for efficiency.  You will quickly move into advanced layout functions such as working with grids.  Continuing on, you will work with layers, advanced text placement and formatting, styles, objects, tables, and color.  There is a whole chapter on printing and preflighting for print, as well as an entire chapter on using InDesign to create interactive and animated documents.

Designed for InDesign users that are already comfortable with the basics, this video training course will teach you tips and tricks that only experts know.  By the end of this course, you will be fully capable of creating picture (or print!) perfect documents in InDesign.  Almost 2GB of working documents are included, to allow you to work alongside the author on the same documents he is using to train you on!
