Discover the synergy between Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign with course work based on a real-life project. Each program is approached as a specialized tool: Illustrator for digital illustrations and web graphics; Photoshop for editing images and creating special effects for web, broadcast, or print design; InDesign as a desktop application. Also reviewed are the challenges of producing best practice formatting solutions for seamless integration of graphics creation and desktop publishing applications, and the protocol for saving work from Macs to PCs.
