|Guide to GraphicFX Bundle (eBook and samples) —
The InDesignSecrets Guide to Graphic Effects will thrill you with all the ways you can make InDesign do things your mama never told you about. In this 150-page PDF, InDesign guru Mike Rankin takes you through dozens of ways to spice up your type and artwork using familiar InDesign tools found in versions CS3 and later.
Chapters include drawing realistic drips, creating 3D and woodcarving effects, building repeating patterns, making shiny objects (like buttons), creating punch-throughs, stickers, and rips; making banners and ribbons, putting images on a stroke, and creating cool image frames such as Polaroid and matte frames. You've never seen InDesign pushed to these limits before!
The Sample Files: The GraphicFX_SampleFiles.zip file contains dozens of InDesign files with live, editable examples of the special effects described in the above eBook. The InDesign files in the .zip are saved as INX and IDML formats so you can open them in any version of InDesign from CS3 onward, Mac or Windows.
