InDesign CC18 SeriesEverything you need to know about INDESIGN CC18
Adobe InDesign™ CC18
Most of us have had to create documents with text and pictures at some point in our lives. InDesign is the professional application for not only bringing text and images together, but also for creating layouts that allow for easier workflows, as well as designing publications for both digital and printed media. InDesign will enable you to create stunning visual, interactive documents for all devices to reach a broad audience. These lessons are specifically designed to help prepare you and your students for the Adobe Certified Associate Exam (ACA).
LOOKING FOR THE OLD TUTORIALS?
We recommend that you use the tutorials that correspond to the version you will take (You should practice in that version as well). But if you want to prepare for the older exams, use the old tutorials, they can be found here: CC – CC15
You can also use the CC15 tutorials to prep for the CC18 exams as we get the new tutorials recorded and uploaded here for you to use!

This video is for our Photoshop tutorials, but has info about how all our tutorials here work. When Rob says “photoshop”, just replace it with “InDesign” in your mind. We’ll try to make a generic video soon.
This quick intro is to introduce you to our tutorials, and our unique way of approaching effective, industry-ready curriculum. We do things differently here, in a way that mimics the real world as closely as possible. We don’t want to teach you how to use CC18- we want to teach you to design using InDesign! The version that you work with doesn’t matter (but new is always fun!) If it seems too weird for you, then we recommend the Adobe Learn series of books– the only books published by Adobe Press and targeted directly at the Adobe Certified Associate exams!
NOTE- If preparing for the ACA Exams, we suggest using the CC18 software.

We’re posting the videos as we build them so you don’t have to wait, but the curriculum is incomplete. We’re working hard to finish as soon as possible, but we put quality and completeness before the calendar. The CC15 tutorials work GREAT for the CC18 exam, and we have many schools successfully reporting very high pass rates on the new exams. We think this is because the Live In The App exams are so much better for students that really know the software!
Main thing to know with CC18 vs CC15 is that Select and Mask has slightly changed and moved, but basic tasks in the window are exactly the same.
