    I’m fascinated by InDesign but also overwhelmed by the enormity of options and capabilites. If a potential employer needed an employee proficient with this software I couldn’t get the job today. Where can I find more exercises such as those in Chris Botello’s book that I’m using in class? I would like to get good at this. Your Humble Servant in Christ Jesus the Lord, ctf

  • Hi Chris,

    You’re right! InDesign has a LOT of features, so it does take some good training or an easy-to-follow book to really learn the application at a high level.

    I always suggest Sandee Cohen’s book, The QuickStart Guide for InDesign CS5. It explains all of the basic and lots of advanced features in a very simple way with lots of pictures. I used Sandee’s book seven years ago when I first started using InDesign.

    This is not a query directed specifically at your tutorial. Could you (or someone at Adobe) please tell me where I can get onlilne tutorials that are NOT on video. I have looked everywhere. Your tut says ‘Continue reading’ but it is not reading but watching. I have a slow link and limited broadband (in South Africa), so videos are just not an option.

    Thank you.

      Hi Travis,

      you probably missed it but some tutorials on this site are not videos, but step-by-step printable instructions with some illustration, if it’s what you’re looking for. You can also download videos from Youtube, 5 at a time (during the night for example) with some plug-ins, but most of them works with Firefox.
