Where are the 'how to' videos? When I click on the title of the course I can download files but there are no videos. Am I doing something wrong??

Hi Jesse, what browser are you using? The videos are working for me and I'm using Chrome. There's been a few occasions of people having trouble in Safari. Could you try a different browser?

Hi! I wanted to know if there is a download option, as I normally go to places where the 4G signal is very week. Best regards

I’m using this training to learn to create my teaching worksheets in ID instead of PowerPoint, and my question is with placing images. Once I place a clip art illustration, I need to rotate it, I used the curve icon on the corner of the image, after I rotate it to the desired angle it doesn’t keep straight lines, it only keep straight lines when the clip art illustration is in square position. I attached a picture for you to see. Can you help with that?

Hi Shelly, rotating the image shouldn't make a difference to the image itself. Sometimes the the screen can display lines in a ridge way but once you print it or make a PDF it's fine. Did you try printing or making a PDF to see how your image looked?

Video Transcription

Hi there, my name is Dan. I'm a Graphic Designer, and an Adobe Certificated Instructor for InDesign.I'm lucky enough to help Adobe directly with a lot of their help videos on their website. Also, I get to speak at their Annual Conference, which is Adobe Max, which is a very cool conference.

In this course, we're going to learn how to use InDesign to a really good level. Now, InDesign is absolutely one of the essential tools for anybody that wants to work in Desktop Publishing, or Graphic Design. This course is for complete beginners. There is no need for any experience in InDesign, Graphic Design, or Desktop Publishing before.

We'll work through real world projects, starting with a simple and easy flier, to get us started. Then we'll work through a longer brochure, company newsletter. We'll make business cards, and take control of a longer document, like an Annual Report. We'll work with color, picking your own colors, and then working with corporate colors. Together, we'll explore how to choose, and use fonts like a professional.Working with images, we'll resize, adjust, and crop.

Throughout the course there are projects that you can complete. You can use them just to practice, but you can also use them if you want to add them to your portfolio. As part of the course as well, there's exercise files, so you can play along. At the end of every video, I save my file to see where I'm at. That can be really handy for you, if you're getting a little bit lost, you can compare yours with mine.

I'm going to give you every single design tip and trick that I've learnt over the years, because my goal is for you to get to the end of this video series, and have all the skills necessary to make beautiful InDesign documents. This is my Blue Steel pose for a while look, otherwise I finish the video, and I rush towards the camera to turn it off. And It kind of ruins it like this.
