This thorough, self-paced guide to Adobe InDesign CS2--written by the experts at Adobe Systems--is ideal for beginning users who want to master the key features of this Adobe program, while readers who already have some experience with InDesign can use this book to familiarize themselves with InDesign CS2's newest features and tools. Using clear, step-by-step, project-based lessons, each chapter contains a project that builds upon the reader's growing knowledge of the program, while review questions at the end of each chapter reinforce the most important skills learned in each lesson. Adobe InDesign, Adobe's revolutionary page layout and design software, is designed to improve users' creative workflow by offering tight integration with the other software in the Adobe Creative Suite. With this version, InDesign has been updated to accelerate your productivity with loads of new features: the new Adobe Bridge file browser, which you can use to organize, browse, and drag content into your layouts; object styles, for quickly formatting graphics and text; snippets, which let you save individual page elements to share with colleagues or re-use later; and smarter text handling, which lets you drag, drop, and paste text without formatting--InDesign does much of the work for you, adding or removing spaces as necessary. This book will walk readers through new features to help them work more efficiently than ever before.
