If you have used other Adobe programs such as Illustrator or Photoshop I think you’ll be fine. There is enough similarities between them all. I would say practice formating some type and know how to place an image and you’ll be good to go!

I am actually a graphic designer and if you have managed to use photoshop I think you can fake Indesign πŸ™‚ Just play around with it in the next 2 weeks and practice making a poster like they said you’ll be doing. There are also youtube videos on Adobe programs as well so you could always watch them to pick up some of the basics like placing an image, editing text etc. GOOD LUCK I am sure you’ll do great!

Go to adobe.com & download a free 30 day test trial of it πŸ™‚

play around with it. Its pretty similar to photoshop. She knows you’ve only used it once, so she’s probably just wanting to see if you’ll learn it pretty fast. I’m sure you’ll do fine if you’re familiar with the other adobe programs!

Here’s and idea for you- pay someone for a one hour lesson! You can check Craigslist for graphic designers, or go to your nearest art school. I paid my graphic desinger to teach me a few things, and if you work with someone who knows what they are talking about I have a feeling you will be much more confident about your own skills. I don’t use ID at all now, but at least after the lesson I understood how to. Basically it uses small images to stand in for big ones, and you drag photos in from Bridge. It has a lot of tools and settings, so get the lesson asap and practice practice practice. Good luck!

if you have a pc, click on the start key, go to all programs & it should be listed there & click on it to open it

I have a mac, I just don’t have it with me. I know along the bottom of the screen, towards the left, one of them shows you all the programs you have.

At work I use a pc, at home a mac. it can be so confusing!
