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.
