This Week in InDesign Articles, Number 134
Another day, another InDesign article… how time flies and there is so much to read, watch, and listen to about InDesign! Check out these fun links.
- Have you looked at the new Publish Online feature yet? You should! Here’s Saurabh Mahajan’s keynote address at PePcon, where he demoed it. And here’s Terry White showing the same document, but with more background details.
- Justin Putney at ajarproductions is working on an amazing tool for getting arbitrary HTML into EPUB files. Check out this video and give him feedback!
- I love this Dear Designer letter by Claudia McCue — something I’m sure every printer has wanted to write to a customer.
- PePcon was fun. How fun? Read Erica Gamet’s roundup of the event (with pictures!).
- Diane Burns wrote a good piece about Publish Online and animation in InDesign here (to go along with her lynda.com title)
- Want to improve your career options? You know this already, but notice that Forbes includes InDesign as a sought-after skill!
- This article is about Amazon Kindle, not InDesign, but I found it fascinating: How Amazon is starting to pay authors by the page read rather than books as a whole. This could lead to some interesting changes in publishing over time.
- Speaking of the Kindle, here’s a new post on epubsecrets about some new typography features for the Amazon Kindle
- I haven’t tried Indiscript’s new Equalizer script yet, but it seems fascinating—letting you apply a wide array of adjustments to objects across your document. Might be just what you need if you need to make changes to objects across a lot of pages!
- Curious about InDesign’s Color Theme tool? John and Kelly wrote a good overview on it here on the Peachpit Press site.
- This is beautiful: a tumblr site called I Love Ligatures
- What is your favorite InDesign keyboard shortcut? That was the question of the day on Wednesday at PePcon. Here’s the first answer, captured by Sanders.
- Need to move text from InDesign to PowerPoint? Recosoft’s ID2Office is a good option; but if you just want to copy and paste text, you should watch the movie in this article.
- This is about Photoshop, but I want to mention this article I wrote about creating cool halftone effects (which you can use in InDesign as images!)
- Apple is doing away with their infamous Newsstand (where magazines and journals just kept getting lost). If you make iOS apps with InDesign, you’ll want to read even more good info about that.
- You care about letterspacing, right? You’d better! Here’s some great tips from Adobe about kerning and letterspacing.
- Do you have an InDesign license plate for your car?
