He who seeks finds in Indesign

The first time I told my colleagues how they could format text almost 3,000 entries in a table with just a couple of directions and a couple of mouse clicks I could not believe that they were doing it manually. For me, accustomed to using Pagemaker and Indesign‘s search for editing and formatting books and magazines it seems an indispensable tool. … Continue reading

Hyphenation uses in Indesign CS3

In the absence of questions I have to rely solely on my experience and the things that come in every day of my work. Which is not always very exciting, but I hope it useful. One of these events occurred a couple of days ago when a colleague came across the problem of an Internet address that it was hyphenated. Surely many of you have used in the past hyphenation’s … Continue reading

Photomanipulation: Zebra Skin

A few publications ago I had a photomontage in which the effects had a very high importance to achieve the desired result, see Photomanipulation: angel or devil. In contrast, the photomontage described in this publication, dispenses with effects, getting the final result through the careful process of cloning and masking layers, and as always, a proper selection of image documents. As in other cases the material used is from the deviantart resources’ bank. As … Continue reading

Working with rotated screens on Mac

A common problem that affects all those designers who work for advertising, is the need to work with models in vertical format. A lesstiring way to better visualize the view and the model is to rotate the display using the monitor driver. To rotate the screen goto System Preferences/Displays and set Rotate to your liking. For obvious reasons this option is not available on iMac, Macbook or iBook but if you have … Continue reading

Photomanipulation: angel or devil

After a week busy creating demo materials and covers I will take some of these to make a small tutorial on one of the trick I’ve done. So far I have not come too close to tutorials because I am one of those who think that experimentation is the best teacher you can find. Following … Continue reading

The art of text printing (Part Three)

As a final point to the review of the fonts I’ll end up talking in the third part of designing with typography. The fonts should help facilitating the understanding of the message you wish to convey. Also the proper use of fonts must make the document attractive and organized. Typographies offer plenty of career possibilities and artistic resources for designers. Knowing the basic … Continue reading

The art of text printing (Part Two)

The first part of this publication was focused on defining the traits of “physical” digital types and their characteristics, such as those currently used by graphical tools. This second part, which begins right now, is about the different styles of fonts, and the easiest way to identify them. Fonts are grouped into families, of which there are now tens of thousands and the number is growing daily. Between them there is a lot of fonts created for a … Continue reading

The art of text printing (Part One)

Due to the length of the subject and the impossibility of compressing it more, I am obliged to publish a detailed description of the letterpress in different places. First will discuss the elements of typography and the history of these elements. Typography is the art of printing a text by selecting styles, families and sources of how to compose a text readable, balanced and … Continue reading
