  • Indesign Books + Illustrator

    Hey....I just bought Indesign CS2 and Illustrator CS2 and i was looking for 2 good books that would help me in actually learning the programs.......would like some suggestions please

    all the classroom in a book series are excellent, not cheap, but you will learn alot by sitting down and doing the projects step by step; another one just for inspiration with illy is "The Adobe Illustrator CS2 WOW! Book,". It has freebies included in the disc along with the files to take apart and explore, a really good resource and training tool.
    Good Luck!

      those are good choices.. and if you want some side tutorials.. go to the resource section which will give you loads of links to some fab tutorials.. adobe site also has a lot of guidance = free!

          Hi Tanner. I was in the Navy with a similar story. Graphic art was always my first love. But instead of freelancing while I was enlisted, I was working on personal fine art illustrations. I made the transition...

          Illustrator is particularly stupid about its link situation. When Indesign opens it will at least give you a low rez image place saver and a prompt telling you the links are missing. With Illustrator,...
