If software doesn’t come in a box, is it still your software? Trick question because it was NEVER your software to begin with. Microsoft and Adobe are keen to remind you of that with a monthly fee for their most sought after programs like Office and Creative Suite. On the lighter side, the GMen get an iTunes review in Morse Code, neither can mange to say Esoterism Tesseract,and apparently it’s too much for Google to do a search.

Adobe CS 5.5 InDesign
Review Part 1

On August 23, 2011, in Review, by Jackie Richards

InDesign CS 5.5
Adobe
Upgrade, single application, suite, and academic pricing available

I begin this review with a caveat. Adobe loves the word “professional.” I mean really! Their CS Suites are for professionals, and I can tell you right now, those people will leave me in the dust with their skills. But I am here to say that we ordinary people will love CS InDesign 5.5. This review is in two parts. The first will cover basic publications, PDFs, booklets, and the useful controls  and workspaces that pertain to the print world. The second part will zero in on interactive publications, including the very lucrative and expanding field of ePub.

With InDesign 5.5, you too can design and publish your church newsletter. You too can design posters for your art group. You too can produce interesting interactive PDFs that can be used on the Internet. And yes, you too can publish your own ePub book as a tutorial, or for a family reunion or for pure vanity’s sake. I did, and I am not a professional by any stretch of the imagination.

About Jackie Richards

Jackie Richards is a self taught digital artist who uses her computer as a creative tool much the same as she uses her potter's wheel, spinning wheel or jeweler's saw. She began working with computers in the late 70's, writing her own software programs as a personal challenge. Although sometimes setting herself up for failure, she says she gains the most pleasure from attempting something she has never done before. She is a mixed media artist working in ceramics, textiles and as a silversmith. Perhaps the best description of her approach to art is construct, deconstruct, reconstruct. She loves her collections of tools of which her iMac, iBook,IPad and iPhone are an important part.
