Acrobat's Own Special Browser

With all this brouhaha (2 points for using "brouhaha") about CS2's new workflow management program, Adobe Bridge, and all the cool things it can do and if it's a good or bad thing that it's replaced Photoshop's File Browser and yadda yadda, I find it interesting that few people mention how Acrobat 7 Pro has been left out of the party, even though it's part of the Creative Suite 2 Premium package.

InDesign CS/CS2 Breakthroughs: 5-Star Reviews!

David Blatner and I spent almost a full year writing InDesign CS/CS2 Breakthroughs, and it was a sweet, sweet day when it was finally published (Peachpit Press) this past June. It’s available in most major bookstores as well as online, such as Amazon, for under $20:

We were both thrilled with the end result, even before anyone else had read it. The book is stuffed to the gills with 4/C screen shots and detailed step-by-step solutions to common problems reported by ID users, grouped in sections like “Master Page Migraines,” “Scaling Insanity,” and “Color Mismanagement.” Since a lot of issues can be avoided in the first place with a bit of forethought, we also wrote up side articles in relevant sections, such as “Mastering the Eyedropper,” “Using InDesign Scripts,” and “Transparency and Your Print Vendor.”
