This is the best introduction to InDesign that I have found. I've worked through several InDesign video training courses, but this one is the best for anyone who is new to InDesign. Kelly McCathran is a superb instructor, and I prefer her approach to teaching. I've also purchased her Photoshop CS6 DVD because of her teaching prowess. She explains every detail of the topic being covered, and doesn't assume the student already knows things. This is the most appealing aspect to me, when it comes to learning new material. The pace is just right, and Kelly provides insight on printing and design aspects that really added to my understanding of the subject.
Video2Brain is absolutely the best tutorial company on the planet. Service is fantastic and videos are consistently high quality. I have purchased 3 and the quality and ease is there in every one. I will always go to Video2Brain first. The tutorials are VERY easy to follow and very detailed. You can work along with them and really understand every technique or process they are teaching. I have taken college classes on some Adobe products and I learn more in these video tutorials than I ever learned in a semester of class. I have purchased directly from Video2Brain and then I found their products on . Great place to buy.As far as specifically learning InDesign... very easy to learn from these videos. I bought two college books and although they weren't bad, I'm just a visual person and found it much easier and quicker with the DVD. Yes you can actually see the buttons they are pushing and you can pause etc. I love that I can put bookmarks and go back to find a particular technique quite easily.Definitely worth the money and time.
I have been using Art Explosion Publisher Pro for 10 years. I have to transition to InDesign because the program is extremely outdated and no longer upgradeable. I was more than pleased to pop this DVD in and see how thorough this woman is in teaching. Even if you have no publishing experience, you won't regret purchasing her teaching tool. She repeats throughout her lessons, just incase you missed something. Extremely pleased!!
