Photoshop is used to edit photos, whether it is just a correction of color, or exposure or intricate compositions. Photography enriches any publication and is most effective when the images are of the highest quality. In the real world, producers of publications are often faced with less than optimal images. Bad images will erode your consumer’s trust in your communication. Photoshop is THE tool to use to make any image the best it can be.

InDesign is the industry standard desktop publishing application used to lay out newsletters, posters, brochures, flyers, books, ads, office forms and documents... the list goes on. It is also a great tool for producing digital publications such as eBooks, interactive PDFs and digital magazines.

Whereas Photoshop is all about photos, Illustrator is all about illustrations—what graphic artists use to create logos, maps, icons, technical drawings and more. These types of artwork are considered drawings, also known as “line art.” Once again, Adobe has cornered the market when it comes to desktop publishing tools. Illustrator is the industry standard.

Digital Publishing Suite (DPS) is a way to publish interactive, InDesign documents to tablet devices with NO coding. Publishing with DPS creates engaging content for magazines, business or educational publications that can be distributed to the public through the iTunes store or Google Play, or privately within a company or organization. Magazines such as National Geographic, O Magazine and People use DPS. Renault uses DPS for marketing communications publications and catalogs.

 “I have graphic ability, so can you!

I love making learning fun—especially in those magic moments when the fear disappears
and that creative spark lights up their eyes.”
