If I’m pulling one thing away from this class, it is the importance of shortcuts. They save so much time, and just make the project go that much quicker. I’ve also learned you can learn a lot about something by just randomly pushing buttons. Maybe not the best lesson, but when I forgot how to do something in InDesign, through randomly click buttons, and googling, I got past any problem I was having.
This site is useful, because it shows any updates that Adobe InDesign has gone through. This means when future updates roll out, all one has to do is turn to there for the new information.
I never knew about how to add widgets. I like having a hit counter on the side, and will use that in the future. I don’t quite get the point of having a pages widget, but I think I like having it there.
This was more difficult than I had anticipated. I think I found a good photo for my header, though I’m scared it’s too gaudy. Besides that it was just a refresher on how to use InDesign which is nice, since it’s been a while since I did something new in InDesign.
I found this very interesting. I enjoyed changing the “putty color” that was the background to light blue. This makes me feel like this blog is my own.
So, I didn’t know how to add categories, so it was cool to learn something new. These help visitors easily find subjects they are searching for. It was easy to pick up, and I think I have it down.
Once again, I had been taught previously how to add link in WordPress, so not exactly challenging, but a good refresher.
