Introduction to Adobe InDesign By Justin Beckett Production Team Leader Dayton Daily News What is InDesign?

Graphic design software used by newspapers, magazines, book companies, advertising agencies and online developers. Evolved from Adobe PageMaker which was used by newspapers for basic layout purposes. Works seamlessly with other Adobe products, such as Photoshop, InCopy, Illustrator, Acrobat and DreamWeaver.

Often used in conjunction with database software such as DTI or News Edit Pro. How we use InDesign Getting started Blank page Compile text from writers and editors Stories may come from local reporters, AP, NYT, or OHNO. All have their

own budgets Compile photos and graphics Art is often listed with stories but sometimes can be gathered based on a particular topic. Determine priority of material

Designers are encouraged to use news judgment when placing stories and photos high or low on page. Elements of a page Every page is a simple combination of text and photos Text color can be modified Kickers sit above headlines Typography is important for

centerpiece design, but should be avoided for all other stories Briefs often support the rest of the page, are shorter, quick reads and get smaller headlines. All of these items can be stored in a library for use all the time. Editing a page Writers and Copy

Editors use Adobe InCopy with InDesign to edit stories. Running both programs at once allows the editor to make changes to the story while the designer is still working on the page. Adobe integration

Files created in Photoshop (photo editing) and Illustrator (graphics, charts) and PDFs can be dropped directly into InDesign documents. They maintain all of their attributes, including transparencies. Bringing them together Text and lines from InDesign
