Introduction
Adobe software has always been highly respected for creative design and 
development. Adobe creates programs that allow you to produce amaz-
ing designs and creations with ease. The Adobe Creative Suite 5 (CS5) Design 
Premium is the company’s latest release of sophisticated and professional-
level software that bundles many separate programs as a suite. Each pro-
gram in the suite works individually, or you can integrate the programs by 
using Version Cue, the Adobe work management software that helps keep 
track of revisions and edits, and Adobe Bridge, an independent program that 
helps you control file management with thumbnails and metadata and other 
organizational tools.

You can use the Adobe CS5 Design Premium programs to create a wide 
range of products, from illustrations, page layouts, and professional docu-
ments to Web sites and photographic manipulations. Integrating the CS5 
programs extends the possibilities for you as a designer. Don’t worry about 
the programs being too difficult to figure out — just come up with your 
ideas and start creating!

About This Book
Adobe Creative Suite 5 Design Premium All-in-One For Dummies is written in 
a thorough and fun way to show you the basic steps of how to use each pro-
gram included in the suite. You find out how to use each program individu-
ally and how to work with the programs together, letting you extend your 
projects even further. You find out just how easy it is to use the programs 
by following simple steps so that you can discover the power of the Adobe 
software. You’ll be up and running in no time!
Here are some things you can do with this book:
  Create page layouts using text, drawings, and images in InDesign.
  Make illustrations using drawing tools with Illustrator.
  Manipulate photographs using filters and drawing or color correction 
tools with Photoshop.
  Create PDF (Portable Document Format) documents with Adobe 
Acrobat or other programs.

What You Don’t Have to Read
This book is pretty thick; you may wonder whether you have to read it 
from cover to cover. You don’t have to read every page of this book to 
discover how to use the programs in the Design Premium Suite. Luckily, 
you can choose bits and pieces that mean the most to you and will help 
you finish a project you may be working on. Perhaps you’re interested in 
creating a technical drawing and putting it online. You can choose to read 
a couple chapters in Book III on Illustrator and then skip ahead to Book VI 
on Dreamweaver and just read the relevant chapters or sections on each 
subject. Later, you may want to place some associated PDF documents 
online, so read a few chapters in Book V on Acrobat or Book II on exporting 
InDesign documents. Find out how to create animations for the Web and 
video in Book VII covering Flash.
You don’t have to read everything on each page, either. You can treat many 
of the icons in this book as bonus material. Icons supplement the material in 
each chapter with additional information that may interest or help you with 
your work. The Technical Stuff icons are helpful if you want to find out a bit 
more about technical aspects of using the program or your computer, but 
don’t feel that you need to read these icon paragraphs 
if technicalities don’t interest you.

Getting Started
Welcome to Adobe® InDesign® CC (2019 release), a powerful page-design and production
application that offers precision, control, and seamless integration with other Adobe professional
graphics software. Using InDesign, you can produce professional-quality, full-color documents
and print them using a variety of output devices, including desktop printers, high-resolution
imaging devices, and high-volume color printing presses. You can also design publications for a
broad range of electronic devices, such as tablets, smartphones, and readers, and export InDesign
documents in several formats, including PDF, HTML, and EPUB.
Writers, artists, designers, and publishers can communicate to a broader audience than ever
before through an unprecedented variety of media. InDesign supports this with its seamless
integration with other Creative Cloud (CC) components.

About Classroom in a Book
Adobe InDesign CC Classroom in a Book® (2019 release) is part of the official training series
for Adobe graphics and publishing software developed with the support of Adobe product
experts. The lessons are designed so that you can learn at your own pace. If you’re new to Adobe
InDesign, you’ll master the fundamentals and learn to put the software to work for you. If you’ve
already been using Adobe InDesign, you’ll find that this book teaches many advanced features
and best practices, including tips and techniques for using the latest version of InDesign.
Each lesson provides step-by-step instructions for creating a specific project. You can follow the
book from start to finish or do only the lessons that meet your interests and needs. Each lesson

Installing the software
Before you begin using Adobe InDesign CC Classroom in a Book (2019 release), make sure that
your system is set up correctly and that you’ve installed the proper software and hardware.
The Adobe InDesign CC software is not included with this book; you must purchase the software
separately (visit adobe.com/products/indesign). In addition to Adobe InDesign CC, some lessons
in this book have steps that can be performed with other Adobe applications. You must install
these applications from Adobe Creative Cloud onto your computer. 
Follow the onscreen instructions.

Adobe Creative Cloud desktop app
In addition to Adobe InDesign CC, this training requires the Adobe Creative Cloud desktop
application, which provides a central location for managing the dozens of apps and services
included in a Creative Cloud membership. You can use the Creative Cloud desktop application
to sync and share files, manage fonts, access libraries of stock photography and design assets,
and showcase and discover creative work in the design community.
The Creative Cloud desktop application is installed automatically when you download your first
Creative Cloud product. If you have Adobe Application Manager installed, it auto-updates to the

Creative Cloud desktop application.
If the Creative Cloud desktop application is not installed on your computer, you can download it
from the Download Creative Cloud page on the Adobe website
(creative.adobe.com/products/creative-cloud) or the Adobe Creative Cloud desktop apps page

Classroom in a Book fonts
Most of the fonts used in the Classroom in a Book lesson files are installed with Adobe
InDesign. Some fonts are not installed with InDesign but are instead available through Adobe
Fonts, a font-subscription service from Adobe that offers access to a vast library of fonts for use
in desktop applications and on websites.
The Adobe Fonts service is integrated with InDesign’s font selection features and the Creative
Cloud Desktop application. Adobe Fonts is included with your Creative Cloud subscription.
Internet access is required to activate Adobe Fonts.
