1) How to use the Pages in InDesign to make a beautiful book
2) Organization is key in the process of compiling projects
3) Uploading InDesign projects in InDesign need to be saved as a jpeg in order for the background to be white.
Future application of Visual Media: Manipulating pictures for family photo projects, creating ads for my children’s accomplishments, RS fliers for activities, marketing for family businesses, etc. Yes, I am excited that I have skills now that will benefit me in the future.
