Using Adobe Creative Suite 6 for Interactive Designs
(Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Fireworks, Flash Professional, InDesign, Muse, and Adobe Acrobat)
The Adobe Creative Suite comprises a set of distinct applications for creating assets used in assembling publications for print, screen, and online viewing of static and dynamic interactive documents and dynamic media files. The Adobe Design Premium Suite contains eleven separate programs not to mention other resources available by Adobe Systems and third party vendors designed to work with the programs.
With all that is available in the Creative Suites, users are often confused about what suite to buy, what programs to use for a given purpose, and how much they really need to know about each program. How to use the programs to optimize files and integrate them between applications is critical for efficient design workflows.
This course is intended to help demystify the confusion and focus on essential features you need to know about Creative Suite 6 applications in order to be productive and create the precise content you hope to deploy. Emphasis is placed on creating assets for dynamic editing and learning common essential features available in all the programs.
Course content is geared exclusively to electronic document creations that can be deployed as digital magazines, ePubs, web sites, interactive PDF files, and standalone executable files in Adobe Air. All features discussed are intended for beginning and intermediate designers who wish to work without writing code or scripts to produce results either for immediate deployment or handing off to developers.
Participants should view the course as having fun and enjoying the learning process without struggling with the tools. You will discover that mastering all the applications is not required for producing exciting material with minimal exposure to a vast set of program features.
