Learning outcome 10 – Graphic Design Adobe Indesign

I’ve watched the full tutorial on how to create a postcard on Adobe Indesign.

And then I went and tried to create the very same postcard that you can download on their website  link to there website Cached . I found it a lot easy to create the postcard wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would of been,

I used the tools such as …

Kerning – refers to the space between individual characters. You can add or subtract space to improve the look and readability of your document. Knowing how to adjust kerning in InDesign, a desktop publishing program that allows you to develop print documents in a number of formats and sizes, will allow you to customize your document’s text in a manner that maximizes its impact.

Tracking  – (sometimes called letterspacing), controls the consistent space between letters across a block of text, and affects a word or text block overall.

Leading – The vertical space between lines of type is called leading. Leading is measured from the baseline of one line of text to the baseline of the line above it. Baseline is the invisible line on which most letters—that is, those without descenders—sit.

Select tool – Allows you to select text and graphics frames, and work with an object using its bounding box. If you click the content grabber (the donut) that appears when you hold the mouse pointer over an image, you can manipulate the image within the frame without switching to the Direct Selection tool.

Type tool – Create and format type in standard or customized blocks or paths.

Rectangle tool – Helps you to create a rectangle shape.

Polygon tool – Lets you to draw basic lines and shapes.

PDF – Portable Document Format (PDF) is a universal file format that preserves the fonts, images, and layout of source documents created on a wide range of applications and platforms.

Printers mark – When you prepare a document for printing, a number of marks are needed to help the printer determine where to trim the paper, align separation films when producing proofs, measure film for correct calibration and dot density, and so on.

 

 

This is how my postcard came out which i’m happy with how it turned out.
