Bill Ellemor—PenFolk Publishing

Using InDesign to design and publish books

Bill will look at:

  • managing the workflow from text and image files through to production- ready files for printing;
  • using key elements of InDesign to achieve consistent production standards;
  • things like use of templates, text cleanup techniques and approach to typesetting, use of styles (paragraph, character, object and table), anchored objects, image captions.

InDesign is a powerful, professional software product. However techniques used to design & publish books can be applied to other software for newsletters & magazines.
