In this Beginning InDesign course, you’ll learn the fundamentals of combining images and graphics with text to create layouts for everything from newspapers and magazines, to books and pdfs.

Everyone is welcome! Whether you’re a total beginner with zero experience—or you’ve dabbled here and there but have always felt like you were missing something—this class has something for everyone.

No fear, here! Khara will walk you step-by-step through the process of building a 6 page magazine-style layout. As you get comfortable in the workspace, you’ll learn how to work with images, text, paragraph and character styles, text wraps, layers, parent pages, and more.

Make no mistake about it: This is a beginner’s course, but it doesn’t end there! By the time you’re finished, in addition to your completed layout, you’ll have a solid understanding of InDesign basics and a taste of some of the more advanced features to get you excited about the world of possibilities waiting for you as you continue your InDesign journey.

Everything you need to complete the course is included: images and graphics files, text documents, a completed project file for reference, and a practice file for trouble shooting—along with a printable guide to the most frequently used InDesign keyboard shortcuts.

    I have a lot to say about your Beginner’s Indesign course. WOW!!! Like really WOW!! Beginners? Not really! I can’t wait to see what Advanced looks like!” I have been self-publishing books for 5 years using Indesign and I was thinking, “OK what am I going to learn already?! Well, let me tell you. There was not one clip from your course that I did not learn something, rather SOME THINGS. There were plenty of brand NEW THINGS that I never knew existed and would have helped me had I known them then.
    Khara, You are a pleasure to listen to. Your voice is exciting and very pleasant to listen to. Your instructions are clear and your pace is easy to follow. Your presentation shows your vast knowledge of the program as you present multiple ways to do things and the best ways possible. This course is recommended for everyone – Basics, Shortcuts, Workarounds, Time-saving Tip and Tricks, all in a practical hands-on course divided by topics. Thank you..can’t wait for more.

    I’m about halfway through the tutorial, and I find it a wonderful learning experience. I’m familiar with Photoshop, and somewhat familiar with Illustrator, but InDesign is fairly new for me. I’ve managed a bit on my own, but the process was slow and difficult. I’ve already learned several things that I know will make my life easier and save time (and frustration). The tutorial itself is divided up into small, bite-sized exercises. None of which are very long, so I can do one or 2 and easily pick up where I left off on another day. The instructions are clear and concise, and the narration is very good. I would highly recommend this, especially if you’re just starting out with InDesign.

      It’s wonderful to hear you are new to InDesign, and that you have found these lessons super helpful for your learning journey! I hope you continue to enjoy working through the course content, Jeffrey :).
