Advanced Photoshop & InDesign: A Powerful Combination

Designers, Editors and Publishers     September 15

If you can’t make it to the live event, go ahead and register. We’ll be glad to send you a recording of the session afterward.

60 Minutes  •  $69

Kevin Slimp taught his first Photoshop class for the Kentucky Press Association in 1995. When asked to teach the class, the organizer told Kevin to expect 15 to 20 attendees. When Kevin arrived in Lexington, Kentucky to teach the class, almost 200 newspaper publishers, editors, and designers were in attendance.

Kevin taught his first InDesign class in 1999, just a few days after the application became available. He had been involved in the development of the product as a beta tester for more than two years and taught a class of 98 newspaper designers in a hotel ballroom in Phoenix, Arizona.

In this session, Kevin will share some of the most valuable advanced tools in both InDesign and Photoshop. Unsurprisingly, InDesign and Photoshop were meant to be used together. What surprises some users is that tools are built into the applications to create a seamless workflow between the two.

Join Kevin on September 15 for his first-ever webinar on the topic of finding ways to make Photoshop and InDesign work even better together.
