Advanced InDesign and PDF Training Workshop 

Advanced INDESIGN 9:30 AM – 12 PM
Buff up on your InDesign skills with Adobe expert Michelle Kerscher. Michelle will go over advanced features including libraries, styles, scripts, effects, paths, master pages, data merge and more. She’ll share her favorite tips and tricks, and will help you better understand how to use InDesign to optimize your production and streamline your organization’s design and editorial processes. We guarantee you’ll leave with tips to make your work easier and faster. You don’t want to miss this session!


PDF Training 1:15 – 4 PM
Are you exporting your InDesign projects directly out of InDesign as PDFs? Join us and we’ll explain to you why this is a no-no. We’ll teach you how to properly create, distill and send high quality PDFs that will be used in newspapers, magazines or other commercial print projects. Michelle will cover everything you’ve ever wanted to know about PDFs, including the importance of embedding your fonts, creating Postscript files, and how to prefl ight your PDFs. She will cover the preferences and settings most appropriate for PDF files that will run in newspapers and magazines. She’ll also address how to manage your PDF file sizes and how to fix problem PDFs so they’ll run correctly.

Michelle is a graduate of the Newspaper Institute of Technology. In addition to working as a trainer for SCPA, she has mastered design and use of Adobe products as a newspaper designer, Web designer and commercial press designer. She has a real knack for explaining high-tech topics in plain-language. This training will be easy to understand for all levels of Adobe users. Though Kerscher will touch on some of the latest features of CS6, her classes are designed for users of all versions of the software in Mac or PC platforms.

For SCPA members, each session is $45. To attend both sessions, the cost is only $65.
For non-members, each session is $65. To attend both sessions, the cost is only $95.
