Make Complex Effects a Snap

The strength of InDesign's layout and design capabilities already make it a top choice among professionals. But even experienced users will be amazed by the visual and text effects that are possible entirely within InDesign. Using step-by-step instructions and engaging examples, expert author Ted LoCascio shows you dozens of breathtaking effects that you can make a vital part of your everyday work, including:

  • Making images pop out of their frames
  • Creating 3D looks like spheres, shadows, and text wraps
  • Designing cool effects with transparency and blending modes
  • Using Feather to add highlights and shadows to InDesign illustrations
  • Creating and applying custom gradients—even within text!
  • Adding glow effects to editable text
  • Jazzing up mundane layout elements such as sidebar heads and bursts
  • Skewing type on a path
  • And much more!

Includes Coverage of Effects Newly Possible With CS2

These stunning, easy-to-achieve effects will help users of every level tap the full creative potential of InDesign.
