Welcome to the complete beginners guide to Adobe Indesign CS5.

In this series, I will be demonstrating how to create a small project in Adobe Indesign from start to finish. To help break down the process I have structured the course into 3 main sections:

Step 1 – Preparation

Step 2 – Implementation

Step 3 – Finalisation

Along the way we will be covering many topics, such as how to set up your document, understand how the program works, use text in Indesign, prepare and import images into InDesign and finally export your document ready for print.

  6. Hey Gareth… Thanks for the tutorial.. can't wait to dove in, but i could not download thr "Scamp design / drawing: as it is no longer on the site. any helps?

  7. I followed your Illustrator course, and now I’m startting with your InDesign course. And I would like to say: you’re an amazing man, Gareth. Thank you for all your knowledge that you share with us.

  8. Hi TastyTuts, nice job you're doing, started with your photoshop tuts, haven't finishe it though, but you're a great teacher.

    Could you please update the mediafire links, the files ain't there no more. Also Enter Sansman font link…. Thanks

  9. Like all Tasty Tuts videos this is really clear, concise and well structured – will definitely recommend this to my students.

  10. Starting directly with the tutorial would have been much better. almost half of the video time is lost in the intro.

  11. I've been meaning to THANK YOU for all your Adobe very thorough crash courses. You have helped me so very much to gain knowledge faster. You've helped me more than I can ever say. Cheers!!!!!!

  12. sending out Prayers to you. i'll also need your account number or paypal. People like you are hard to find out here

  13. Thank you so much, Gareth. I've learned a lot from ps to ai and now indesign all for free. Guys if y'all want thank him just don't skip ads or donate on his site.

  14. You Sir, are an absolute hero. This is exactly what I was looking for.

    It's particularly refreshing to see a video detailing a very complicated piece of software portrayed in such a clear, concise and to the point way. I'm fed up of seeing videos on this topic lasting 45 minutes with about 30 minutes devoted to how the designer got where he is, how he's feeling and what he had for breakfast.


  16. Sir Ur two download links are broken there is nothing to download if u can fix it or answer me and the links are Final PDF Document And Scamp Design / Drawing Thanks.

  17. Good to hear your voice again maestro. I have learned AI and PS from your videos in the past. I can't express how much I appreciate your work. Thanks a million.

  18. Thanks a lot for this tutorial. It's awesome and helps! I started with Illustrator basics 8 months ago on this channel, and now I'm going the same route with InDesign! Wonderful!

  19. You are a living legend mate, I have learned photoshop from your other course and now im gonna learn indesign because you are the best teacher ever , period.

  20. Hey! Thank you very much for this course!
    Your tutorials are clear, well illustrated and concise, I learned everything I need to do my project!
    Thank you!
