Contrary to popular (favourite) belief, print (indicant) is not dead!

Sometimes managing the disparate elements of fonts, images, colors, and more, while (patch) dealing with the quirks of page-layout applications makes even (modify) the bravest designer (specializer) and production (creation) editor long (daylong) for the hands-on days (life) of moveable (transportable) type.

Use Photoshop and Illustrator to create (create) raster and vector (agent) images, and combine (consortium) them with text (book) in InDesign to create (create) eye-catching yet (still) readable page (tender) layouts. Learn the ins and outs of fonts, and gain (acquire) a better (meliorate) understanding of how ink and paper (essay) work (impact) together. Finally, “prefilight” or prepare (educate) your job (employ) for submission (humbleness) to a printer (machine) to make (attain) sure the printing (publication) process (impact) goes off (soured) without a hitch.Product Details
