    how to set up a cook book

    redbourn Level 1

      Hi,

       

      working on a cookbook and just downloaded a trial of InDesign.

       

      Am not completely lost because I'm pretty familiar with Photoshop and Acrobat.

       

      So I want the final book to be 8"x8" a single first page and then double sided with an image on one side and two columns on the other side.

       

      Bleed is 1/8" I believe.

       

      Publisher right now is lightningsource but I'm a few months away from actually publishing and haven't yet paid any money.

       

      So what is my first question?

       

      What do I enter on the first set up page?

       

      New document or book and after that?

       

      I've looked at some tutorials but none really explained this very first step, and I'd like to get off on the right or left foot ;-)

       

      Thanks,

       

      Michael
