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.

If you would like to take only some of the courses in this program individually, you can browse IT Training's course catalog in IU Expand and enroll in only the courses you would like to take individually.
If you complete all of the courses in this series individually, you can still earn a certificate by purchasing and passing the final online exam separately.
If you purchase this series, please DO NOT also purchase an individual course that is also in this series, as you would be paying for the course twice.
