Time to get my hands dirty?

Apr 26, 2012 3:56 AM

Hi all Digital Publishers

I have been working with InDesign (basic layout and typesetting) for print for a few years now (freelance, part-time)!


The stuff I have been doing is for school textbooks.


It is now obvious that iPads, Kindles, laptops etc. will become ever increasing tools for education. I am therefore attempting to get "my hands dirty" and train myself in the use of Digital Publishing Suite. I have seen a couple of videos, but nothing one could call a training manual. Where would you suggest I look to a) get started and b) get up to speed?


I have installed and updated Folio Builder in InDesign CS5 on a iMac 10.7.3. I have existing books in ID to convert, or should they be re-targeted to DPS?


Your advice would be appreciated

    And hang out here. Read the posts...plenty of tips.


    You should also consider now how you're going to handle CS6. If you move to 5.5 now you'll get CS6 for free and save money in the process since 5 to 6 is more expensive than 5.5 to 6.


    Another choice would be Creative Cloud at just $30/month for the first year with all the single edition apps you can create.
