Want to create print-ready documents that look like they were done by a graphic designer?
Event invitations, holiday cards, brochures, and flyers are all a snap when you discover the tricks of high-end desktop publishing in our Learn Microsoft Publisher 2013 course. In this 6.25-hour video training course, you’ll get the tools you need to add your unique touch of creativity to any kind of document.
To kick things off, your expert instructor will help you explore the Publisher interface and get comfortable with navigating your way around it. Next, you’ll discover how to delete and add pages, and how to move pages around when you want to change your document’s order. Videos on paragraph formatting, working with columns, and using fonts will then teach you to make an impact with your text. You’ll learn to do this with images, too, as you learn techniques for adding cool effects—textures, gradients, shadows, and more—to your visuals.
By the time the class is done, you’ll have mastered the process of preparing your Publisher project for professional printing or for publication on the internet.
