The newest Creative Suite version will include a new wrinkle in Help. You’re going to be able to search the help topics along with a number of community resources—blogs, user forums, knowledge base articles, and so forth. The search is basically a limited Google search. I’ll add links to the best sites in the Custom Search Engine, and those sites will show up in search results, ranked according to Google’s metrics.
I want you to let me know what your favorite InDesign websites are. If you have a blog, leave your link in a comment, and I’ll consider adding your website to the search engine. I can also add links to the best videos and articles in the related help topics, either directly or as a comment.
Here are some of my favorite InDesign resources:
Lynda.com tutorials – Subscription site, but many videos are free.
InDesign Secrets – David Blatner and Anne Marie Concepción provide a steady stream of podcasts, videos, articles, and tips.
The InDesigner – Michael Murphy’s excellent videos and articles
Seneca Design – Anne-Marie again. The InCopy site is one of the best resources for InCopy workflows.
Tim Cole’s InDesign BackChannel – News and resources.
Instant InDesign – Video podcasts and downloadable exercise files from Gabriel Powell.
Creative Mentor – I like the format of providing videos to go with the articles.
The Graphic Mac
Adobe user forums
Videos and Podcasts
Adobe TV – Check out the Caffe Fibonacci videos with Tim Cole and Rufus Deuchler.
Creative Sweet – Get it? Sweet, not Suite? Oh, nevermind.
