Lynda.com is releasing a new series of online videos called “InDesign FX,” with new installments to be released every other week or so. The concept is that each release will be a self-contained InDesign Effects project designed to be completed in ten minutes or less. Taught by expert Mike Rankin, the series explores every aspect of InDesign’s graphic effects capabilities through real-world examples, all without relying on Photoshop or Illustrator.
There have been 4 releases so far:
- Blurring Objects with Drop Shadows
- Creating Interlocking Objects
- Exploring the Effects Panel
- Creating Long Text Shadows with Type on a Path
