TC 424: The Computer in TC(Winter 2008)

Week 6:

Continuing with Adobe InDesign


What will we cover today l.jpg
What will we cover today?

Re-cap Week 5 issues with importing content into InDesign

Discussion of graphics formats, and the recommended use of each

Some advanced formatting techniques

Generating a PDF

Backing your content out to MSFT Word and RTF

More than you ever wanted to know…


So what happened last week with importing my content into indesign anyway l.jpg
So, what happened last week with importing my content into InDesign anyway?

A few of you encountered C++ runtime errors

What caused it, and how do you troubleshoot things like this?

Figures didn’t import via the RTF optimally, which required relinking and resizing of the graphics, as well as a paragraph style adjustment to the leading

What caused this to happen, and how can I avoid in the future?

General sense of confusion?


Graphics making sense of the alphabet soup l.jpg
Graphics; making sense of the alphabet soup InDesign anyway?

GIF; graphics interchange format. Developed by CompuServe as a small byte count graphics format. The only one to support transparencies in web-presentation until the use of PNG’s in the late 1990’s.

JPG (also JPEG); joint graphics experts group. Created as an alternative to the GIF format to render more image clarity within a compressed file. However, the compression comes at the cost of image clarity. Cannot include transparency.

PNG; portable network graphics. An improvement on the JPG image, which utilizes lossless image compression, and may include transparencies as with a GIF file.

TIFF (also TIF); tagged image file format. Originally created by Aldus, and later acquired by Adobe. Developed for use as a file format for use in desktop publishing applications. Retains more image resolution that PNG files, but cannot include line art.

EPS (also EPSF); encapsulated PostScript. A self-contained, reasonably predictable PostScript document that describes an image or drawing, that can be placed within another PostScript document. This is the only format of the five presented here that may contained vector (bezier curve) image data as well as rastar (pixel-based) image data.


Graphics what kind should i be using l.jpg
Graphics; what kind should I be using? InDesign anyway?

Ask your production staff

My recommendations;

Print-resolution graphics; EPS

If image compression is required (though I can’t think why this would be necessary) high-resolution TIF files would be acceptable (but not in graphics that contain text that must remain clear and legible).

Web/online ready graphics (in order of preference); PNG, JPG, GIF


Let s talk formatting l.jpg
Let’s talk formatting InDesign anyway?

Paragraph styles palette

Character styles palette

Object styles palette

Master pages


Creating a pdf l.jpg
Creating a PDF InDesign anyway?

What is a PDF, and why do we use it?

Portable Document Format

Cross-platform compatibility

Broad install-base

Standard for print publishing, as well as having good online interactive capabilities and file compression

WYSIWYG


Repurposing your indesign content in a word processor l.jpg
Repurposing your InDesign content in a word processor InDesign anyway?

Export file as RTF

Open in Word


More than you ever wanted to know l.jpg
More than you ever wanted to know… InDesign anyway?

  • The first true keyboard-operated typesetting machine was invented by German-born immigrant, Ottmer Mergentheler, in 1886

  • The company Mergentheler wouldlater found—Mergentheler LinotypeCompany—reportedly got its namewhen Mergentheler was demonstratinghis machine to New York Tribuneeditor, Whitelaw Reid. Upon asuccessful demonstration byMergentheler, Reid is said to haveexclaimed, “Ottmar, you’ve set aline o’ type!”


What did we cover today l.jpg
What did we cover today? InDesign anyway?

Why things worked out somewhat less than ideally last week

Graphics formats

Formatting palettes and master pages

Saving a PDF and exporting an RTF from InDesign

Introduced Ottmar Mergentheler and the Linotype machine—the greatest invention sliced cheese.
