Application Overview: Adobe InDesign CC 2015

Adobe InDesign CC is a professional industrial-strength publishing program which combines page layout and the ability to create graphic intensive documents.

Adobe InDesign is capable of producing full-color output on high-volume color printing presses and also supports a wide range of output devices and formats such as desktop printers, PDF and HTML files.

Adobe InDesign utilizes Adobe Bridge to browse, organize, label, and preview graphics, as well as InDesign documents, templates, and snippets. You can drag and drop assets from Adobe Bridge into layouts easily and efficiently and search for files using metadata, such as keywords, colors, and fonts used.
Object styles allow you to apply and globally update object-level formatting more efficiently using object styles. You can save a wide range of graphic, text, and frame-level attributes as object styles to create more consistent designs and speed up production tasks.

Adobe InDesign also allow you to control visibility of layers and layer comps in Photoshop files, and layers in Adobe PDF files, to experiment with different design options or use multiple variations of a file in your layout - all while linking to a single file.

Users: Creative, Web, Engineering, Finance, IT, Legal, Marketing and Admin Professionals as well as anyone who needs to create, edit, assemble, publish and distribute electronic documents, imagery and illustration.
