The Advantages Of Today's Desktop Publishing

Once upon a time if you wanted to create a newsletter or brochure it involved several different processes and people to do them.

Today, with all the technological advancements, nearly anyone can produce quality print and online materials via their desktop computer. If you have a business of any type or simply want to put up a lost poster, you will likely be using desktop publishing, at least to some degree.

Desktop Publishing

The standard definition for desktop publishing is using a computer and specific software to create a variety of informational and visual displays. Basically, you are using your computer and whatever software you like to create a document that you can either print, post online or email to whomever you like.

Businesses use these to create promotional materials, training manuals and a host of other applications.

Desktop Publishing Applications

A very popular choice in publishing tools is the Adobe suite of products. You can create a ton of different things using these programs including eBooks.

These projects are all PDF files and require a specific program to open. Being able to create all types of documents on the fly, changing graphics, typeface, font and more is important for streamlining business, but it also has a down side. It is also extremely easy to create bad designs!

These are powerful tools, however to use them you need at least a little training.


InDesign is a new suite of tools for the Adobe desktop publishing world. This new software takes into consideration that you may want to create documents compatible with new smart phone technology and touch pads.

Everything is going mobile today and the person or business that can quickly adapt to these changes is going to excel. You will be able to integrate interactivity, audio and video for playback on new devices.

Of course, as mentioned above software programs such as this also make it easy for you to create bad designs, which is why you should really consider InDesign training.

InDesign Course

Adobe InDesign is not a cheap piece of software; it can cost up to $300 and provides plenty of value for the buck.

If you are going to spend this kind of money on software, you should really go the extra mile and learn how to use it properly. An InDesign course is just the ticket for getting up to speed on the latest version of the software.

Once you have your software in hand, you can choose an appropriate InDesign training session. You will have a few different options available to you including:

Introduction- for people new to desktop publishing and the Adobe suite of products. Get hands on training that will allow you to create anything from a flyer to multiple page brochures.

Advanced- for people who want to take their skills to the next level or qualify for Adobe expert status. Learn to use more complex features of the software.

Quark Conversions- if you are switching from Quark this InDesign course will help you understand the differences between the two. This program can be tailored to your needs and experience level.

Other- InDesign training can cover several small niche areas such as editing and artwork as well.

If you want to produce quality newsletters, brochures, eBooks or anything else that requires desktop publishing InDesign is an advanced program that can have you publishing like a pro in no time.
