InDesign Digital Publishing

It’s all about taking your documents online or to e-readers. In this course we will look at various methods of creating digital publications such as Interactive PDFs and Electronic Publications (EPUBs) for page readers such as Kindle and iPad. We will also look at the liquid and alternate layout options, and Publish Online which allows you to publish a digital version of an InDesign document that is available on any device, in any modern web browser, without the need to install a plug-in.
