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.
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.
This is what I thought about the learning process for InDesign Versus WordPress…For Homework fill out the rest.
I’ve used WordPress before, so I already knew how to make a new page or blog post. I did not know how to set a subpage or how to organize the pages. Also I’m having some trouble with two home pages, but I’m sure the professor will help me work it out. Adding subpages to Class Projects wasn’t difficult once I got the hang of it.
We learned some new WordPress terms as well, exploring the differences between posts and pages and the front end versus the back end (Dashboard). I’m sure there will be more terms to follow.
