InDesign Training FAQs

Our training centres comply with current Government guidelines from the Covid pandemic.

Measures in place include:

  • Desk distancing complies with guidelines
  • Facemasks available
  • All training equipment and furniture sanitised thoroughly after use

Our focus is on you being a faster, more capable Adobe InDesign user when you return to work.

Our InDesign courses combine traditional teaching to explain new concepts and tools with hands-on exercises.

The exercises ensure that you get plenty of time to build up your InDesign skills by trying out what you have just been taught in a real-world scenario.

Libraries are covered on our advanced InDesign class. 

Using libraries can speed up your workflow substantially.

We cover creating tables of contents on our advanced InDesign course

Tables of contents can be quickly and simply created and updated if you set them up correctly in your InDesign document.

Yes.

We will provide everyone who completes one of our courses a certificate of attendance. This includes people who attend an online course.

Of course… it’s what InDesign is designed for!

If you attend our course for InDesign beginners you’ll be able to quickly create a beautiful flyer, page layout or poster very quickly in InDesign.

This InDesign tutorial on creating flyers gives you lots of templates and examples of the types of things you’ll be able to create after your training course with us.

Yes, layers are covered in our course for InDesign beginners.

However, Layers in Photoshop are very different from Layers in InDesign and Illustrator so… don’t be expecting the same… they’re easier!

InDesign is an industry-standard professional desktop publishing tool. 

It is used by graphic designers, marketing professionals, digital publishing experts and other creative professionals to create beautiful brochures, professional documents and flyers. It can also be used to create interactive documents and interactive PDFs.

InDesign works very well with long documents who want to use and interface with other Adobe software (like Illustrator and Photoshop).

Adobe InDesign is just under £20/month on a Creative Cloud subscription.

You can find full details on Adobe Creative Cloud subscriptions here.

This does not need to hold you back if you are unsure whether to learn InDesign. Adobe currently offer introductory free periods for new subscribers.

Illustrator is used to create graphics (maps, plans, icons, infographics, graphs, logos etc).

InDesign is used to create and format documents (magazines, flyers etc).

The two Adobe applications work hand in hand, and Adobe have designed them that way so that transferring files from one to the other is very simple.

Older versions of InDesign were designated with a CS, the most up-to-date version is designed CC.

CS was short for Creative Suite. So the most recent version of InDesign CS was InDesign CS6. These versions of InDesign were sold with the older perpetual licence type of access and are no longer supported by Adobe.

Creative Cloud is the description given by Adobe to all of their applications that are available over the internet.

The Adobe Creative Cloud is a collection of over 20 Adobe products.

These enable photography (Photoshop CC), design (Illustrator CC), video (Premiere Pro CC), movie effects (After Effects CC), and much more.

Apps accessed through the Adobe Creative Cloud are constantly upgraded and so the designation does not change as it used to with each new release of InDesign which went CS1, CS2 and so on.
