  • This is one of the few books to cover integration and workflow in depth between Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, GoLive, Acrobat, and Version Cue
  • Graphic design firms, ad agencies, and publishing houses typically use a collection of programs to build their designs for print or the Web, and this book shows readers how to effectively manage that workflow among applications
  • Provides solutions for issues that working designers or design students face every day, including developing consistent color-managed workflows, moving files among the CS3 applications, preparing files for print or the Web, repurposing documents, using CS3 with Office documents, and more

Good Product

User Review  - mayfarm - Overstock.com

The Adobe Bible arrived in a timely manner. It is just as described. I read the reviews of the book before ordering it. It will be a very useful learning tool. It is more of a manual than a workbook. The shipping was very reasonable and the bill later is a convenient feature for online shoppers. Read full review
