Adobe_01

TUTOR: PAUL SHADBOLT


THE 6 WEEKS COURSE WILL RUN FROM WEDNESDAY EVENING 9 MAY TO 13 JUNE.

EACH CLASS WILL START AT 6PM AND FINISH AT 9PM. 


This course introduces you to the layout and design applications of Adobe InDesign and Photoshop to create your own publication (portfolio, brochure...) and to retouch your digital photos.

Adobe InDesign® is a powerful page layout application that is the preferred choice of designers and publishers today. It provides you with all the tools you need to create an exceptional layout for print and screen.

Photoshop® is the professional standard in digital imaging, with an endless selection of drawing tools, filters, and colour-adjustment capabilities for manipulating items in many ways.

Using InDesign you will learn how to set-up a variety of documents, place images, format text, prepare and use master pages, create style sheets and produce documents ready for print. You will also learn the basics of typography and page layout design.

Using Photoshop you will learn how to prepare images for your documents and basic image editing. This part of the course will cover how to adjust images for brightness and contrast; cropping and straightening images; removing backgrounds and most importantly, how to ensure you have the correct resolution for printing.

This is an introductory course and is suitable for all individuals who wish to learn the basics of InDesign and Photoshop to create layouts for print media. The course is also a suitable introduction if you are currently working in marketing or design and also DTP/administrative personnel. No prior experience with InDesign or Photoshop is required for this class.

During each session Paul will deliver content, including knowledge on the software and practical exercises. After the class, the students will have the opportunity to practice further with exercises and tutorials, supported by guided information sent by Paul and available on Adobe's website.

Please note, to make sure the students are getting the most out of this course, they are expected to do some homework in between sessions (about 45 Minutes to 1 hour each week). Paul will email the students course notes and extra practice exercises each week.

Students can download a one month free trial on their personal computer to work at home. 

Note:

You do NOT need to bring your computer to this class.

Please ensure you enrol with a valid email address. Course material and hand-outs will be provided to students during the course via email.
