New InDesign FX Movies at

One of the nifty new features in the 2014 Release of InDesign CC is the improved handling of scaled effects. Now when you scale an object with transparency effects applied to it all (including drop shadows) the effects will also scale as expected.

And to mark this occasion, I've added four new movies to the InDesign FX series at, including a free movie on how to make an awesome blue ribbon.

For members there are other new InDesign FX movies on how to make a mechanical display board like a you'd see in a train station or airport…

plus how to make objects look like they've been put through a paper shredder, and a super simple technique for making objects look like they're sitting on a shelf.

Yeah, that's right…shelfies.

So check out InDesign FX at, now with 108 videos on awesome effects done entirely with InDesign.
