Great episode! I remember way back when … the 1st tiem you mentioned AcademicSuperstore.com. I went and bout the Adobe suite and. This inspires me to teach our Assistants to use inDesign as well. It's about time they move on from publisher, AMEN! hah.

Love to see more info on InDesign. Maybe if you could go over an old program or something. I'd love to bring this to our church as we outsource currently. Publisher has been my go-to program over the years, but I'd love to grow into something more professional. Love what you do, keep it up!

I'd dig an in depth look at InDesign if you were able to do that. Thanks for the intro!

I have been a long time Adobe user, but have been looking for some good tutorials for InDesign as it relates to church publications. I would love do see a bit more in depth tutorial. I would also love some templates or sample documents available for download that we could use and manipulate. Our church bulletin is in need of a face lift and i think InDesign is our answer. A downloadable template would be a great learning tool.

Thanks for the great post!

Brad, this tutorial is great. I see that the commenting on this entry is different. Did you remove intensedebate?

Great episode. I'm trying to get caught up with the episodes. Im a little behind. InDeisgn is one of those programs that I don't use on a daily basis, but it's a great skill to have.
