Open InDesign document, enter text and change paragraphs
Whereas Photoshop handles bitmap images and Illustrator handles vector images, 'InDesign' takes images and texts created in other programs and puts them together (editing = layout) to create documents, books, and e-books. DTP program. Photoshop and Illustrator also have layout and output-related functions, but while programs that focus on creating image elements rather than layouts, InDesign focuses on layout, printing, publishing, and electronic publishing. If it is a one or two page design work or brochure, you can make it in Illustrator, but it is much more efficient to work in InDesign for a print that spans multiple pages.
I would like to briefly show you how to run this useful and must-know InDesign program from a beginner's point of view.
First of all, click on InDesign and run it, you will see a screen like the one below.
It has the upper menubar with Print, Web and Mobile. In my case, I would like show you with Print option.
I choose the A4 sized documents in Print option.
In InDesign documentation, it is necessary to understand the concept of margin. This is an important function that allows you to check and preview the margins and print output that occur when you actually print. The status of publication after printing depends on how the margins are set. This margin function can be modified later. It can be sufficiently deformed before printing, but it is convenient to calculate and input the margin of your own print in advance.
If you create a document after setting the margin, you will see a white document with a purple thin line as shown below. The purple area is the area where text or images will come.
Right on the left is a workspace called the Toolbar. Today, I will show you mainly using the selection tool and the document tool in the toolbar.
The right workspace is an area called the panel. This area is the detailed option for the toolbar you have selected.
And at the top there is an area called the action Pane. But it may not be in your program. It is recommended that this work pane is always out. To do this, follow the steps below.
Below is a picture of the work window.
So, what should we do first? Text input is mandatory in InDesign. Click the text box in the toolbar on the left and drag it into the document. Text can be entered only when a document box is created like this. The size of this document box can be reduced or increased by clicking the selection tool.
Beginners who use InDesign for the first time may feel cumbersome to enter all documents in the document box like this. To do this, follow the steps below and you will see that the text box is filled with practice text in no time.
The functions that you use the most when entering text in a document are zooming in, zooming out, and previewing. In this case, it is convenient to know the shortcut keys.
Below is the useful shortcuts related for zoom functions.
What follows below is about changing the shape and size of a letter by selecting it. Even if you have only dealt with MS Office's word processing, this task will be very easy for you.
InDesign can change various shapes, such as changing lowercase letters to uppercase letters, creating underbars, etc.
You can also make the text rise from the ground line as shown below.
You can also change the scale of the width or height of the text itself.
Most of all, you can also select text using clicks of the mouse!
If you want to make changes other than what is displayed in the work pane, please move as follows.
See below for more detailed options. For example you can also make italic fonts.
Below are examples of options that make changes to paragraphs.
Continuing the next post will also cover the features of InDesign.
Review of Getaway Eastern Catskills.
To escape the sweltering heat, we went camping in Getaway Eastern Catskills for 2 days and 1 night. The cabin at the campsite here is a concept that looks like a campervan, and the cabin is equipped with a bed with a mattress, a bathroom, and a kitchen.
Small, clean and modern cabins are set on flat ground surrounded by tall, dry trees all around. The yard has lounge chairs and a space for a campfire.
We have forgotten the most important piece of camping equipment, firewood. But when it arrived, the wood was prepared in a small black plastic box that I saw. The price is 8 dollars. What makes this camping site unique is that you cannot meet staff. Of course, there are stores selling camping gear, but most of them are remote cabins. The entrance to the cabin is in the form of a digital door look, and you just need to enter the verification code that the company gives you through your mobile phone before you arrive. It felt like an unattended hostel because I didn't meet the staff directly.
We have a small child so we booked a 2 bed room. The two-bedroom has an loft structure with a small staircase as shown below. On one side of the cabin is a one side curtain wall, out of which the densely packed trees are directly visible.
And right in front of the bed is a small table.
The cabin is overall very clean. There are radios and books to read, and bowls, cups, cutting boards, frying pans, and pots for simple cooking are provided. Coffee and tea are also available, but you have to pay. It is recommended to bring it in advance. And you should always have mosquito repellent ready. There are a lot of mosquitoes.
There is a refrigerator without a freezer function, and there is an air conditioner. And there's a red phone you can call in case of an emergency.
The bathroom is equipped with a shower and hot water is available. But there is no washstand, so you have to use the sink in the kitchen. Towels and shampoo are well stocked.
Below is the equipment to make simple marshmallows by lighting a fire.
The downside is that the two-story attic is suitable for small children, but I wouldn't recommend it for adults. The ceiling is very low and stuffy like an MR.I machine, and my daughter often bump her head. The mattress upstairs is thin so your back will hurt a lot when you sleep.
Overall, it is a good place to stay for a while when you want to relax and enjoy camping in a cozy and clean environment in a quiet wilderness. Very quiet and clean.
In my case, it was interesting because it was my first time staying in a camping car. If you have never used a camper before or want to take a break from the hustle and bustle of daily life, it would be good to stop by for a while.
Paint with a Twist!
Since I am a painter, I am also interested in a job related to painting and artist. And I'm posting with the hope that there will be more jobs opportunities to maintain their living for artists and I also hope that I will get a good opportunity.
Today I would like to introduce an art studio called ' Paint and Sip'. Founded in 2007, Painting with Twist offers live painting events in its studio with wine or cocktails. Events are held at local studios owned and operated by independent franchises. Studio artists guide guests step-by-step through the process of creating a personalized painting.
Click on the screen above to go to the company's official website.
The company recruits stage artists and assistants. And then the company create a pool of the artists to make the class, and then post the class for people who want to party while learning painting through classes designed by teaching artists. There are three different length classes. The children's class is an hour and a half, followed by a 2 hour $35 painting class and a 3 hour $45 painting class.

Today, Painting with a Twist has approximately 240+ studios open or under development in 39 states.
Most of the teaching artists teach their subjects by drawing with acrylic on a canvas of size 16 x 20.
The below is the official instagram.
I captured the impressive screen from the instagram as below. There is also the birthday party or lesson for children.
As you see below, its concept is straightforward but significant. I think art comes closer to our lives than museums or galleries.
If you're an artist, you can read the below information related to the job opportunities and positions. (The contents below may differ from case to case because it is a franchise type. )
Our Mission: Through ART, we inspire people to have FUN and create lasting Memories.
Job Type: Part-time
Pay: $15.00 - $18.00 per hour
Review of InDesign
Adobe Creative Suite is a discontinued software suite of graphic design, video editing, and web development applications developed by Adobe Systems. In summary, it is a collection of graphic design, video editing, and web development applications made by Adobe Systems. The collection consists of Adobe's applications (e.g., Photoshop, Acrobat, InDesign), that are based on various technologies (e.g., PostScript, PDF, Flash).
In the Adobe creative suit, Photoshop is used to edit photos, Illustrator is used to draw, and InDesign is used to layout images and text.
If you use InDesign's layout function, you can create magazine covers by calculating the folds and cut edges when printing, and it is also possible to work on complicated folds like brochures. This is a very useful program if you design with publication and printing in mind no see.
In particular, with the development of Internet technology, anyone can make good use of these technologies and publish their own writings into books as a self-publishing. Of course, you can use a site called Canva instead of InDesign as in the example below.
If you go to the site above, you can see in detail the case of publishing a book using Amazon Kindle Publishing after making a book using a template of Canva.
However InDesign creates more professional documentation based on its templates, and you can create unique designs through the personalization features. Canva is more focused on social media graphics and presentations.
Below is the initial screen when the InDesign program is opened. If you have worked with Adobe programs such as Photoshop or Illustrator, the screen below will be familiar to you. The advantage in this case is that you can master the program in a matter of weeks because you only need to learn additional core features.
And if you click the screen below, you can see that InDesign also provides free templates.
How to earn free 40 listings on Etsy shop.
You can receive free at least 40 listings if you invite someone to become a seller on Etsy and they complete the process of opening a new shop.
If a Etsy member has already begun to set up a shop but their shop isn't open to the public yet, the promotion cannot apply. The recommended account must be a buyer-only account before the code can be redeemed.
Please remember that the people you refer need to open their shop directly from your referral link in order for you both to receive free listings. If someone navigates away from the link or switches browsers, this new shop will not be registered as coming directly from your invite.
First of all you have to visit the site below. Click on the screen below to go to that website.
Simply enter the emails of the people you want to invite.
Then, you will receive an invitation email with the following message in the email of the person you want to invite. Click the orange button with accept invitation!
Then the invited person can see the screen below. In other words, when you open a shop, it is a message that you can receive 40 free listing services. You have to click "Let's do this"!
Below is a simple survey format. Ask why you need Etsy, what you're going to do with it, etc. If you don't want to answer, just press the skip button and go to the next one.
Now, you can click the button, Start your shop~
From below, it is the same as creating an Etsy shop in general. You just need to upload at least one image to get a free listing. Images uploaded like this do not take up $0.20.
It is a screen asking if you want to open tax information, that is, as an individual or as a business. Then enter the bank information. When everything is complete, invitees will see a message like the one below at the top right of the listing screen.
This is a great way for both the referrer and the referrer to get 40 free listings at the same time. At $0.20 per listing, that's a savings of about $8.
When you run a shop for the first time, there is no immediate profit. To make some profit, you have to be patient and upgrade your shop. So, it can be quite a burden if you spend $8 on a regular basis. If you use this system well, you will be able to manage the shop comfortably.
