InDesign CC 2015 Beginner’s Quick Start Lesson

I try to jump right in feet first and show you how to start making professional looking layouts with Adobe InDesign CC 2015 in this beginner’s level video. We look at how to create a typical 3-column magazine layout; create text boxes; place, move and crop images; format text and much more in this introductory video. More to come very soon!

Could have used the columns tool, would have been far quicker.
Greek text ??? > Type > Insert placeholder text…

Great tutorial, and you sound like Astronaut Charlie Duke which is a bonus. – p.s: It’s “sans” not “san” – French for “without”

Thanks for sharing Tony I don’t know anything about InDesign and I want to learn so you’ll be my online teacher. I prefer to learn things at my own pace. 🙂 Thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn something 🙂
