Hi! I am Claudia McCue and welcome to Total Training series for Adobe Creative Suite Design Premium with a focus on Print Workflow. Now, I have a confession to make, I am not a designer, but this video isn't intended to teach you design; it's meant to teach you how to prepare for successful print. Graphics applications like you do some wonderful things, but to paraphrase your mother, it's all fun and games until somebody's job can't be printed. These lessons will show you some helpful techniques for creating content, as well as useful tools for finding and fixing problems.
Now, keep in mind that it's extremely important to communicate with your print service provider. Let them know what's coming their way and listen to their advice about real world print issues, and that way you will both be happy. Now, since almost every design job involves a trip into Adobe Photoshop, we will start there first, and then we will place our images into InDesign. Photoshop isn't limited to just RGB and CMYK, you can go beyond that to add features such as varnish plates and spot colors, and if you are sick of the dreaded Print tool, you will love density masking. So, let's take a look at the possibilities.
