  • Hello! It's a pleasure to join

    I'm a full time Graphic Design student (my 50th birthday present to me) and it is a dream come true.

    I love it all and I'm looking forward to learning by listening, and asking when I need to. I'm taking Photoshop and InDesign along with Photography, Design 1 and Drawing. My biggest challenge right now is my grey value scale(11) for Design 1 (I do love the guache my instructor required) My background is working with fabric, so I understand color. I'm going for perfect increments because training my eye to see it will be invaluable. I'm just not there yet...I'm enjoying the process...InDesign is online and that's a bit tricky. The program is brand new to me, and I know I'm spending hours on things that should be easier...Our book is Revealed, I use the Help a lot but I'd love a couple of reference library referrals to add to my stash. Thanks, and I'll try to be less verbose and more concise...

    I'm just really glad to be here!

    Welcome to the forum svd, and congratulations on being able to pursue your dream.

    You'll find a lot of invaluable advice on here. Check the Adobe products section often, use the forum search for InDesign, and definitely check out this link: InDesign Secrets.

    If you have iTunes, there are also some good podcasts on InDesign that you can check out, and the Adobe InDesign forum is also a good place to go for resources.

    Good luck, and once again, welcome!

                  Adobe InDesign and a JPG Size
                  Hi again,
                  For some reason, the jpg that is 1920 px by 680 px does not fit into the Adobe InDesign 1920px by 680px document. When I place the jpg into INDesign it shows up much smaller. I know this...

                  Comment on E-book Cover Design color profile
                  Absolutely. There is nothing worse than explaining the color gamut to clients who have fallen in love with the vibrant RGB colors that turn to mud in CMYK. Nothing.

                  Reply to Drawing tablets
                  There are many wacom tablet owners right now that are not working with upgrades. Google and see if yours is one that doesn't have an update. I'm on mac, and I have heard that the Bamboo will not work...

                  I thought Adobe bought out the forum to silence all the badmouthing of their brand I've been doing lately.

                  Reply to Drawing tablets
                  I know you want a new tablet but did you try updating the drivers and doing all the PC "click this" and "uncheck that" that comes with it? There was a known driver problem with the...
