About the Program

Documents that require precise layout of text and graphics, such as brochures, newsletters, and professional looking flyers, are typically designed using several graphics software applications that specialize in certain tasks. Adobe, Inc. offers all of these applications in a package named Creative Suite, which includes Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. In this Desktop Publishing Fundamentals series you will learn how to use Photoshop to modify photographs, use Illustrator to create logos and line art, and how to pull it all together with text into a layout using InDesign.

All courses include:

  • Step-by-step instruction
  • Exercise files to allow you to work along
  • Instructional videos for reinforcement
  • Quizzes to check comprehension

Each course in this series is fully online and self-paced. Each course might take two to four hours if completed in its entirety. Content can be explored non-sequentially, as well.

A certificate will be rewarded upon successful completion of the final online exam for this series.
