A Designer's Guide to Printing with InDesign
See Details
Released Dec 1, 2012
We’ll get started by learning about the RGB and CMYK color models which is something every designer must understand. From here, we will begin learning about several topics that are specific to preparing jobs for commercial printing. First, we will spend a little bit of time learning about the difference between screen resolution and print resolution. Next, we’ll move on and learn about topics like spot color and process color, the appearance of black, overprinting and trapping as well as managing our ink levels. We’ll wrap up this course by learning how to prepare a press ready PDF in InDesign. After completing this course, you will have a good understanding of the concepts, tools and techniques used to prepare print ready documents in Adobe InDesign.
