New Book from Cengage Learning Reveals How to Create Stunning Content for the Internet and the iPad Using Adobe InDesign CS6
Clifton Park, NY – May 22, 2012 – Delmar, part of Cengage Learning and a leading provider of learning solutions for ongoing career development and education, today announced a new title focusing on the just-released Adobe® Creative Suite® 6 (CS6) software – Adobe InDesign CS6 Interactive: Digital Publishing for the Internet and the iPad. As part of the Revealed series, this new title is among 12 other books to be released in the series based on the CS6 suite of software. Adobe InDesign CS6 Interactive will provide in-depth lessons on using InDesign CS6, and show readers how to create web sites with video, sound, hyperlinks, animation and complex interactivity – for both the internet and the iPad.
Through the recent release of CS6, Adobe has transformed InDesign into a layout program not just for print but also for the web and for tablet devices like the iPad. This new upgrade revolutionizes digital publishing and creates enormous opportunities for designers and teachers of InDesign. Just five years ago, a designer wanting to create a web site would need to code in HTML or work in Adobe Flash or Dreamweaver. InDesign CS6 changes all that – now any designer who is proficient with InDesign can create web sites and publish to the iPad.
Adobe InDesign CS6 Interactive: Digital Publishing for the Internet and the iPad is a brand new title in the award-winning Revealed series that goes the full distance to teach users how to navigate InDesign’s newest interactive features. The title provides a hands-on approach to demonstrate the process of registering a URL, purchasing, hosting and uploading files to create a web site. In addition to the web, Adobe InDesign CS6 Interactive teaches students how to create layouts for the iPad, upload to the iPad and create unique downloadable apps.
“I am excited to continue being a part of the cutting-edge Revealed series,” said Chris Botello, author of Adobe InDesign CS6 Interactive: Digital Publishing for the Internet and the iPad. “The recent release of Adobe CS6 has expanded InDesign’s boundaries, and allows users more functionality with designing digital content than ever before. If past users had previously felt left out of web design because of a lack of programming knowledge, those days are over. InDesign CS6 Interactive will teach users to leverage design and visual communication techniques to create visually stunning web pages and iPad publications.”
Adobe InDesign CS6 Interactive is Chris Botello’s fourth addition to the Revealed series – with other titles published on InDesign, Illustrator and Advanced Photoshop. Additionally, Botello is a teacher at Tabor Academy in Marion, MA. He co-authored Adobe InDesign CS6 Interactive with Dylan Dove, a student from his basic InDesign class at Tabor Academy, currently in his junior year. Botello immediately recognized Dove’s skills with software and his in-depth understanding of the web and HTML coding. Botello demonstrated some of InDesign’s new interactive features to Dove and from there, the idea for Adobe InDesign CS6 Interactive took shape.
