Indesign practice 2

In this lesson, Mr Cheo gave us another practice to do on indesign while he goes around checking on our e-learning assignments! This activity allowed us to familiarise with the basic functions indesign has so as to be efficient and quick while doing future assignments and projects. In this particular practice, We did a magazine cover with a train in the text! This practice is very much similar to the previous exercise, where we had to do text wrap on the duck. However, for this particular practice, we had to animate the train from the actual image itself.  











In this illustration above, it shows the paragraph text. This tab allows one to alter the FIRST letter of the magazine article so as to catch the attention of the readers. The size of the first letter can be controlled by the arrow my curser is pointing at.

In the illustration above, i am creating a text box and including the texts saying “BRAND NEW MRT” as an extension of the article above.
