When it comes to desktop publishing software, look no further than Adobe InDesign, created by Adobe Systems. It is used to produce newspapers, flyers, magazines, posters, books etc. It is also capable of publishing content fit for tablet or other mobile devices in combination with Adobe Digital Publishing Suite. The main users of Adobe InDesign are graphic designers and production artists.
InDesign is a layout program, which in the recent years, is capable of performing much more tasks than just creating layouts for prints. Adobe had used the actual codes for Photoshop whilst creating CS3, Creative Studio 3, and created a kind of “headless Photoshop” which enabled the user to choose between drop shadows, bevels, feathering, glows and many other options. These were fine tuned and expanded in CS4 and CS5. With CS5 it has become easier to perform many of the tasks in InDesign which were once exclusive to Photoshop. Digital billboards, web banners, display screens etc are all more efficiently put together with the aid of InDesign.
