Transcripts

1. Course Introduction: Welcome everyone to learning how to create a magazine layout in Adobin design. By the end of this course, you will be equipped with the skills to create professional and creative magazine layouts, utilizing design principles for your portfolio, research projects, or client work. I am your host, Elias Anapols and I've been an educator over the past 30 years teaching paid layout, vector design, and animation. We'll begin the course understanding how to create the magazines layout grid based on the letting value of the body text with margins, columns, and guides. We'll create the magazine cover as being the first thing to grab reader's attention. The magazines folio for both page spreads, we'll build the content space for the corresponding articles. We'll add the feature magazine article with headline and strap line. To spice up our layout, we'll use highlighted text and line caps. For decorative elements, we'll add drop caps in the paragraphs. And lastly, we'll add a photo gallery using grittify based on live captions coming from Adobe Bridge. So in this profession on creative magazine, I'll cover a variety of concepts and techniques from basic to intermediate levels guiding you step by step through the entire process. By the conclusion of the scores, you have a solid understanding of utilizing design to create your unpaid layouts. 2. Document Set Up: All right, everyone inside our doping Design CC. I'll go ahead and start this off by creating a new document. Inside the document dialog box. I'll click on the print presets from the list of presets, I'll choose the letter size, which is the most common size in the United States. I'll give it a name of digital magazine. I'll change the units of measurements from picas 2 ", and that gives me a page width of 8.5 " and a page height of 11 ". I'm going to set the number of pages using the Aparok for now to four pages. I'll make sure that the facing pages option is checked on as it is by default, which means the magazine will be laid out as a two page spread. Now, margins define the content, which may include text images, another content design. Typically, we set the margins here, but for now, I will zero them out, and I'll set the margins in a different step. Bleed is the area extending past the edge of the page, and it's used to avoid strips of white paper showing on the edges of your prints. So I'll set the bleed to an eighth of an inch and I'll click to create the new documents. 3. Document Grid Calculations: Grids provide rhythm to your designs. They help give your page balance structure and readability. I'll go ahead and create a document grid with rows and columns separated by gutters. To calculate this, we are looking at the page size of 8.5 " by 11 " or 612 points by 792 points since this is the unit of measurement we will use as the letting size is always measured in points. Now, the letter size of this document has an aspect ratio of one to 1.3. And to maintain that aspect ratio, our document grid will have 13 rows and ten columns. That will give us the most square grid for the layout. The height of its row needs to be as big as one line of text, two lines of text or three lines of text, and so on. So for this print magazine, I'll set the height of it row with three lines of text, so that will be 13 times three, and that equals 39. Now, let's not forget the space in between each of these rows. That will be the gutters space. In this case, we will have a total of 12 gutters, 39 plus 12 gutters that equals to 51 lines from the top margin down to the bottom margin. Here, we need to make one important design decision that is to set the letting value of the magazine, which is the distance between two lines of text. On my end, I'm making the design decision to set the letting size 213 points. 51 lines times 13. This is going to give me a height of 663 points. Where most of the content will be contained. So to determine the amount of space for the top and bottom margins, I'll take the page height of 792 points and subtract the 663 points. That leaves me with 129 points, which is the top and bottom margins combined. Now, it is a personal choice, how to distribute the 129 points between those margins. For this print magazine, I'll make the top margin smaller. Since the bottom margin will include the folio referring, for example, to the page numbers, the name of the magazine, and the publication date. As for the inside and outside margin space, I will divide the 129 points by half, so I can center the entire magazine. 4. Margins and Guides: Now that I've done the calculations figuring out the margins and grid sizes, al goheds and set those up. What is important here is that we work inside the pages window and specifically with the A parent page. Since every time we need to have the margins and guides visible, both will appear throughout the entire magazine. Schohad and double click on the a parent to work on both pages, and then under the laud menu, I'll bring up the margins and columns. As you can see the unit of measurement is set 2 " since that's the way we set up the new document. But the calculations were done using the points as a unit of measurement. I'm going to cancel this out. Then right here in this corner where the rulers intersect a right click and switched points. B on the lad menu, March and columns, set the top margin 259 points. I press the tab key on the keyboard, set the bottom 270 points. Continue pressing the tab key. The inside margin will be set 64.5 and the same for the outside margin 64.5 to center the entire magazine into the page spreads. As for the go space, that correlates with the size of the body text, letting value, as mentioned previously, I've made the design decision to set that to 13 points and then click. For setting up the guides back on the lad menu, I'll bring up the create guide dialog box. I'll set the number of rows to 13. The number of columns to ten, and once again, the garrospace will be the same as the body texlating value, which set to 13 points. I'll make sure the fit guys is set to margins, and then click Okay. So, whichever page I navigate to, both the margins and guides are visible, so I can place the text and images following the layout. Now, this visibility comes from switching screen modes. Right now, the screen mode is set to the nom mode where all visible grades and guides are showing. I can also switch screen modes and choose the privy mode, which is how the end design will look, or we can use the keyboard shortcut to switch between those two screen modes. 5. Magazine Cover - Part (A): The first page of a magazine is the cover page. In this case, I'm just going to double click to get into the very first page spread. And look inside the layers panel, here's layer one. So I'm just going to click one and rename this two photos, and that's what I'm going to put the photos. I'll click on the PSC to create a new layer, then I click one and rename layer two text, and that's what the text will reside. So I'm going to lock this one temporarily and just work on the photos layer. So from the tool bar, I'll go ahead and grab the can tool. And then from bleed to bleed, I'm just going to click andr to create a rectangle shape. And for a fill color, and symsis libraries, I'm just going to apply this color of my choice, and then click on to rename this two BG. I lock this one, so don't accidentally move it and continue working with the rectangle tool from bleed to bleed once again, click and drag to create a rectangle shape acts. I'll release that and apply this fill color of my choice, and then click once to rename this two top box, and then hit enter return and then lock this don't accidentally move it. Continue using the rectangle tool. Once again, from bleed to bleeds. I'll click and drag to sat another rectangle. Frame here. Perhaps around here, I'm going to release that and apply this color of my choice. Let's say that will be the title box. Once again, lock the sons don't accidentally move it. Now I'm going to go ahead and place the photo of the cover this case, I'll use the rectangle frame tool. Once again, from bleed to bleeds. I'll draw this rectangle shape with a frame tool, and under the file menu, going to place inside my PS folder. Here it is the psb document, the head of the Alexander, and then click to open. All right. Now looking inside Photoshop, here is the head of the Alexander. Now, this document has the same dimensions as the magazine here. If I go under the image menu, image size and switch the unis measurements to inches. Here it is with 8.5 b 11. This is just the side notes. Back on the magazine cover here, that looks good. It's just what I can do is I can just double click to get into the photo and then just bring this down just a tad because I need to have a bit of a space breathing space breathing room between the title and whatever comes here. So the frame is still there. One thing is a double click to get into the contents of the frame. I'm just going to lock this one, and the next step is to add the corresponding text for the magazine cover. Okay. 6. Magazine Cover - Part (B): To add the corresponding text to the magazine cover first inside the layers panel, I will lock the photos layers so don't accidentally move its contents. Unlock the text layer, just click on it to make sure that all contents go inside that layer. So I've got some notes here. And the first I'm going to add to insert as a corresponding text will be the special collector's edition. I'll to the clipboards. Grab the type to form a tool bar, and then click and drag to create a text frame, release that and then past that in. I'll double click, and then select everything, and I'll set the phone family to aerial. Phone weights to bolts, I'll up the phone size to 18 points. The text will be white and to center this first with the selection tool, I'll double click in any handle right here to quickly fit the frame to its contents. Now I can center this right here with the horizontal center. But first, I need to make sure from the options that I'm going to in this to the page and then click to center. Now, with the darrow key, I'm just going to not this a bit. And no center this here. I like that. I'm going to lock sod on extent move it. Continue. The next will be the archaeological times. That is the name of the magazine. I'm going to cap this. Grab the type tru, click and drag to create a text frame. I'll paste that in, double click select everything. The form family will be set to the data pro, and that will be bold and I will up the size 246. I'll give it a color. Let's see this color of my choice. Once again, I'll go ahead and fit the frame to its contents by double clicking on this handle here. Center this. And maybe bring this up just to Tad, and then continue. That would be the tmchological Museum. That's like a by line here. I'll copy this. Grab the type tool, click drag, I'll past, double click, select everything. Once again, I'm going to use a P. That would be extra bolts The size will be set to 18 points. I will be all caps, and this is the call of my choice. Once again, double click to fit the frame to its contents, and then center this. I like what I see. I'm going to lock this both. Next I'm going to add more text to this negative space. 7. Magazine Cover - Part (C): Continuing adding more corresponding text. I've got some notes here. The first article would be the lysian sarcophagus. Actually, this is going to be the main article. I'm going to copy this. I'll grab the type tool from the toolbar and then click and to text frame. I'll release that I'll double click to get into the paragraph. I will select everything, and this is going to be a line to the right. For the phone family, I'll set the son to aerial. Area black is okay, but the phone size will be set to 19 point verleting of 21 point, that will be all caps, and this is the color of my choice. Now, let's make sure that this actually lines up to the boundaries of the margin. I'm going to switch between the preview mode to the any modes. I'm going to bring this right here inside the boundaries of the magazine, and I'm going to resize the text frame like so. I'm going to bring this up. There we go. We've got that. Let's continue with the masterpiece of Hellenistic sculpture. I'll copy this. Grab the type tool, click and, I'll paste that in. And I make sure again this lines to the right. This is the color of my choice. Fun fan will it be set to aerial, regular font size to 13 points of a letting of 15 points. And I'm going to resize that. No need to add any break Lex. Going to bring this close since this actually is part of the lysian sarcophagus. All right. S lex kits. I'll continue this. Next, we got the sarcophagus of the morning women. That's another article here. I'm going to copy this to the clipboards and then click Andra create a text frame. I'll paste that in. I'll select everything here. This is going to be again aligned to the right. The phone family will be set to aerial black over 14 points and 18 points of letting. The color my choice will be this color here. Let's make sure we are within the boundaries of the margin and we are going to bring this close. Alex we'll continue this with the Alexander the great. I'll cap this and create another text frame, paste that in. And what I'm going to do is actually is double click to get into the paragraph. I will select everything from the tool bar, I grab the eye dropper tool, and I'm just coin two. Let me a bit here to just sample the properties of this text and this will be applied to this text here. L? Nice and easy. All right. And I'm going to bring this close and perhaps I can resize the text frame just a tad, something along those lines. We've got, I believe, Omer text to go, the sculptures of Hellenist Roman period. I'll copy this. Do the same pretty much Paste that, select all this, grab the eye dropper, sample this text properties. Of course, now I need to resize the text frame so things fit correctly. Maybe resized it this way. There you go. The crit. Of course, adjusting the position will be necessary, but for now this scrit we've got a couple of more things to add and the magazine cover will be ready to go. 8. Magazine Cover - Part (D): All right. So a couple of things to finish off the magazine cover. And that is with the selection tool. I will make you select all of these text frames. And pressing the shift key. Just going to bring this down to Tad like so. Maybe I can bring this up just a bit. Now I would like to have some separation between the two articles here. For that, I grab the pen tool for a tool bar. Click one, press Shift key, and click again to create a straight segment. Now I want the straight line to have two points of thickness, and then this color for straw color. Zoom in a bit here. Maybe bring this up just to Tad and bring two to kind of split the distance between those two. All right? For this one here, maybe I can bring this down just a little bit. And then I've got some notes that will be the plus C one here. That will be area Bolt 48. So I'll click reg, I'll type the plus icon, I'll select that a a color of my choice. That would be aerial bold set to 48 points, and then double click to fit the frame to its contents and just bring the scene right there. There you have it, we just finished the magazine cover. 9. Magazine Folio - Left Side: Magazine folos can have page numbers, names, issue dates or months. And so in our magazine progress, I'll add page numbers and names. Now, for the folder to appear throughout the magazine. That means we need to work inside the a parent page spreads. Double click to get into that. I'm also going to switch between the previous modes and on my mode to be able to see the margins and guides. In addition, inside the layers panel, I'll block the text layer, and then I'll click on the plus sag to create a new layer. I'll click one, rename this two folio. I'll grab the type tool, and then click drag to create a text frame. Okay. Release that. And the first element that I'm going to insert is the page number. So under the type menu, insert special character markers and current page number. Now of the bat, we get the letter A, and that's because we are inside the A par and page spread, but that will change once we start navigating throughout the magazine pages. All right. After that, I will insert a white space. So instead of using the space par for that, Design can do this for us. Under the type menu, insert white space and insert and space. After that, I'll insert a vertical line or what we call the pipe symbol. We can do that with the help of the glyph spanel Under the type menu, I'll bring up the glyph panel, and I'll do a search for vertical. Here it is. When you have it over, you can see the name vertical line. All you have to do is just double click to insert that. Great. After this, I need another white space. I do the type menu again, insert white space, and then insert an n space. After that, we're going to have the name of the magazine. That would be the archaeological times. I'll paste that select everything, and I'm going to assign a pago of style. I'll click on the Parag of style panel. Then click on the plus I' going to create one. I double click to get into the paro styles options. I'll give you a name of folio left spreads for the basic character formats, for the phone family, I will assign aerial. For the phone style bolts and I set the size to 7.5 points and then click. Now, the event that you see this plus icon, that means we have some mixed overrides. All we have to do is just right click and then apply fool your left spreads, and then clear overrides. 10. Magazine Folio - Right Side: So we've got the folio left spread. Now we need to work on the opposite side for the folio right spread, since after all, this is a special edition magazine. We are still inside the A parent P spreads and also inside the folio layer. And once again, I grab the type tool. And then click rag to create a text frame. Release that. Now, the mouse is black in here, which means we need to actually be on the other side on the right side to start. So up in the control bar, right here, I'm going to align this to the right, and the first element to add to insert will be the page number. Under the type menu, insert special character, markers, and then current page number. Now, to move past the page number, I use the left RO key on the keyboard, and then under the type menu, I will insert an n space. Again, to move past the n space. I'll use the left RO key on the keyboard. Then back on the type menu, I'll bring up the glyphs panel. I'll double click to insert the pipe symbol. Then again, to move past the pipe symbol. Use the left arrow key on the keyboard, and then back on the type menu, insert an otherwise space, and space. And to pass that. Again, I use the left arrow key on the keyboard. Now, this is going to be the special addition, so I'm going to capy this, and then paste that in. I will select everything and create another part of style. Inside the par of styles panel, I'll click on the plausc to create one, double click on it, and give it a name of folio, right spreads. For the basic character formats, font famer will be set to aerial, P style to bolts and the size will be 7.5 points us to double check my work inside the in spacing, the alignment is to the right and then click. 11. Magazine Folio - Positioning Text Frame: All right. Looking at these two foliar text frames, they are glued to the bottom margin of the pages. We need to add some breathing space in between. I'll click to select the text frame and then right here at the center, I will double click to fit the text frame to the contents. I'll do the same on here. I'll double click right here to the center to fit the text frame to the contents. Now to add the breathing space, I'm actually going to do this numerically. I'll click to select the text frame. Then on the wide location, I'll add 25 points, and then press enter return, and that moved 25 points. I'll do the same one here. I'll add 25 points, press enter return, you can see, both volar text frames have equal spacing at the bottom of each pay spread. And navigating, for example, to the second and third page spread, we can see the page numbers, as well as the names, the archaeological times, and the special edition. I. 12. Magazine Folio - Removing from Cover: Okay. There is one more point I would like to bring to your attention, that is, folio page numbers do not appear on the magazine covers. So in this case, I'll double click to get in to the first page. Looking at the very bottom of the magazine cover, here is the folio, special edition and the page number one. So in this case, we need to ommit this. From the flat menu, I'll click one and then choose apply parent two pages. We are on page one. So apply parents, none, and then click, and now you can see the folio has been omitted from the cover page, but it does appear to the rest of the magazine page spreads. 13. Body Text - Paragraph Style: What follows the magazine cover are the articles and the page spreads. That means we need to lay down the foundation of the magazines reading text. Inside the magazine progress, I'll double click to get into the pages 2 and 3. I'm also going to switch from the preview modes to the m modes, from the toolbar, I'll grab the type tool and then click and drag to create a text frame. I'll release that. Under the type menu, I'll fill this with placeholder text. Now, to be efficient with my work and make sure throughout the magazine, reading text is the same for every paragraph. I'll create a paragraph style, so I don't have to repeat the process over and over again. I will double click to get into the paragraph. I will select everything inside the par styles panel. I'll click on the plus icon to create a new paragraph style. I'll double click on it, inside the styles options. I'll give it a name of body text. Under the basic character formats for the phone family, I'll assign the data P. Phone style will be set to regular. Size will be set to ten points, and the letting value 213 points, and then click. So to demonstrate this on this next page spreads. Once again, I'll grab the type rule and just create a text frame. I'll release that, and then fill this with placeholder text. So to apply the same style as this paragraph to this paragraph reading text. All I have to do is just click on the paragraph, and then apply the body text paragraph style. 14. Two Column Paragraph: To showcase the next steps and before I move forward, I will temporarily transition from a single column to a two column format and provide a visual reference to see how paragraph text appears across spreads. With the selection two, I'll click to select the text frame and under the object menu and inside the text frames options, I will increase the number of columns two and set the go space to 13 points, which is the same as the letting value of the body text then clicker. 15. Body Text - Hyphenation: Continuing with our magazine in progress and to improve the reading text, I'll make some adjustments to the words that get hyphenated inside the paragraph. You see these words gets hyphenated, this word, the words and so on. In this case, I'll double click inside the body text paragraph style. Under the hyphenation and the options, first, we have the words with at least. Here we can control how long a words need to be to get hyphenated. I'll set this one, two, seven letters. There will be four characters kept at the end of each line, and three characters carried down to the next line. It will be only one hyphen for every row. I'm also going to move the slider all the way to the left for better spacing, and no need to have any options for capital words across column and last words, and then click. 16. Body Text - Justification: I. Word spacing plays a big role in determining the density of the type, and the place to go is the justification settings. I would double click on the body takes paragraph style and inside the paragraph style options and under the justification settings for variation in word spacing on its minimum, I'll set this one to 85%. I'll press the tab key twice, and to balance that, I'll set its maximum 250%. For the desired I'll use the uparoky on the keyboard to increase the space between words and adjust it slightly to an increase of just 10%, and then click. This is just a personal preference, and what suits the typeface. When these settings are applied to a large amount of reading text, they can have a big impact. 17. Body Text - Baseline Gird: A baseline grid is a grid of horizontal lines evenly spaced across the document for aligning columns of text, and that's what we're going to create here horizontal guidelines that keep lines of text consistent from page to page. I'll spits between the preview modes and the m modes. To make the baseline ride visible under the view menu, grids and guides show baseline grids. And to customize the baseline grid, according to the type, I'll bring up designed preferences panel. Inside the grids, we've got some options. I'll change the preview color to a light color. The starts will be set to zero, and it will be relative to the top margin. You see, this is the top margin. Increment e very refers to the space in between grid lines, which corresponds to the letting value of the body text, which is set to 13 points. Finally, I'll check off the grids in back. The baseline grid stays in front of any object like a photo or a solid filled object on the page, and then click Okay. Now, let's not forget to set the body text to be locked to the baseline grid. I'll double click on the body text part of style, and inside, it is in spacing for our align to grids, I'll click on the OPT menu and then choose all lines and then click. So whatever I move the body text around the page spread, it always snaps to the baseline grid. 18.

I would double click on the body text paragraph style, and then inside the inds in spacing. I'll set the first line indent to be equal to the point size of the body text, which is set to ten points and then click. Now we have indentations when paragraphs begin throughout the text. Here's a new paragraph, another one, another one, another one, and so on. Now, one thing to be mindful is first line indents are not necessary at the start of a new paragraph or when the body text follows a heading or a subheading. In this case, I will make a variant of the body text by pressing and holding the k of the option key, and then click and drag this right on top of the plus icon to create a new paragraph style, double click on it. I'll give it a name of no intent And inside the incident spacing, I will zero out the first line indent and then click. Now to remove the indentation from the beginning of the paragraph. All I have to do is double click to get into the paragraph and apply the no indent paragraph style. 19. Body Text - No Break: On many occasions, even if previously have set the hyphenation settings for the body text, some single letter words still get hyphenated. So it's a good idea to prevent that. Here's an example of a single letter word that gets hyphenated. I double to get into the paragraph. I select the single letter words. And then inside the character panel. I'll click on it, and then click on the flat menu, and then choose no break. Now, to be efficient with my work, I would create a character style and apply that anytime a singular word gets hafinated. Inside the character style spanel and all the way at the bottom, I'll click on the plus second. The creates a new character style, double click on it. I'll give it a name of no break and then click. Whenever I come across a single letter word that gets half an edit, all I have to do is apply the no break character style. Here's another example, double click on it and just apply the no break character style, and that continues throughout the entire magazine. 20. TOC - Setting Up: The table of contents serves as an outline and it is a central reference for the content in a magazine, and that's what we're going to set up here. No need to have those two text frames. That was just for us to set up the magazines body text. I'll go ahead and press the delete key on the keyboard to remove that. I am inside the page spread two and three, inside the text layer. I'm also going to switch between the privy modes and the modes. I grab the rectangle tool from the toolbar. And from bleed to bleed and some right here at the center of the spine of the magazine. I create this rectangular frame. I'll release that. I'll make sure that I'm right here on the fill option. And then inside mysisa libraries, this is the color of my choice for the fill color. I'll rename this two frame, and I'm also going to look it. So I don't accidentally move it. All right.

For the paragraph shading, I'll turn this on. The color will be set to yellow. No need to have any transparency so that will be set to 100%. As you can see this occupies, the shading occupies the entire column. In this case, I want on this to affect the text. So the width will be set to text. I'm also going to disable the chain icon and set the top of set separately to a negative value of nine points and then click. All right. Now, to center this to the page, first, I'll double click to fit the text to its contents. I'll make sure that align this to the page. I'll go ahead and center this horizontally center.

For that, I'll grab the pencil, and then click one to create the first C point and then press the shift key to create the straight segment. I'll use a two point stroke. I'll make sure that I have the stroke as an option here on the top. And then inside my libraries. This is the color of my choice for this stroke color. Now, go ahead and zoom in quite a bit here. You can see this is just a straight end. When I select that, I can go to the window menu and bring up this stroke panel. And for the cap option, instead of a butt cap, I can have a round cap and now have rounded corners. All right. So the lex kit. I'm also going to select that at the center to the page and also lock those two layers so I don't accidentally move them. 22. TOC - Heading: Okay. All right.

I'm going to scroll down up and down and see that actually, the color of my choice does not populate inside the swatches here. I'm going to click for now. Diselect everything and then inside my CC libraries. This is the color of my choice. So right click to add that particular color to the swatches. Back on the TOC heading. I'll double click on that.

Now, this comes from the body text since the first letter is based on the body text and inside its in spacing, here it is, we've got the indentation. I'm going to zero this out and then click. That looks great, but there is room for improvement. For example, I can have space between this character and the body text, as well as I can change the color of the drop cap.

New Parent Page - B Parent: Moving forward to the last page of the magazine progress inside the pages panel, and all the way at the bottom, I'll click on the blast secon to create one. For this page, I would like to cover it with a solid background color as I did with the table of contents. However, I'll take a different approach by creating a new parent page, and that will give me flexibility towards having a more visible folio since this spread will have a dark background. So go ahead and then click to duplicate the A parents and I have the B parent page with a folio as needed. I will be working on the photos layer, I'll switch between the privy mode and the mode. From the tool bar, I grab the rectangle tool and from bleed to bleed in the middle of the page, I create the rectangle shape. I release that from the CC libraries, this is the color of my choice.

Photo Gallery - Gridify: For the photo gallery, I'll use the powerful grittifi feature in student design to create a layout of photos and captions combining paragraph styles and object styles. The gritty fi feature works with any of the shape tools. So in this case, form a tool bar. I grab the rectangle frame tool and click and drag out and draw a large rectangular frame, and with a mouse still held down, I'll tap one the right arrow key on the keyboard to divide the frame into two columns. By keep tapping the right arrow key, it splits the rectangular frame into more divisions. Tapping the up arrow key that will add rows and the opposite using the de arrow key, and the left arrow key will remove rows and columns. When I let go, it's going to draw as many shapes as I want. Now, the default gap space between those frames, the space between those frames, also known as the gato space can be found inside the marges and columns, which is set to 13 points as it has been configured from the very beginning. So to demonstrate that and change the gap space. I remove that and click and drag out and create another large rectangular frame with columns and rows. With the mouse still held down and pressing the control commands, and the right arochy that increases the vertical spacing. Similarly, pressing the control commands and the up arochy increases the horizontal spacing, like so. 45. Adobe Bridge - Asset Manager: Adobe Bridge is an asset manager that lets you preview, organize, edit meta data, add keywords, labels, and so on. So to generate my captions, I'm using Adobe Bridge to add meta data descriptions to my images before I import them inside design. So, for example, with the statue of Artemis photo selected, and under the IPT C core section. I have already added the corresponding description meta data, and the same thing applies for the rest of the photos. So I highly recommend you spend a few minutes since this is going to play such an important role for generating live captions insights, adb design. 46. Photo Gallery - Placing Photos: To create the photo gallery, first, Spitz from the preview mode to the mode to see the grids for lining the frames. I'll make sure that I'm creating the content inside the photos layer and from a tool bar. I will grab the rectangular frame tool to create a large rectangular frame.

Now, since I will have nine photos altogether, that means I need some duplicates. I'll use the keyboard scuds I'll shift option shift to create the first lubricate, then one more duplicate to go. And release. I will mark you select with the selection to all of these frames and double check my work to make sure that I have equal spacing between rows as I do. And I'm ready to place some photos inside those frames. So under the file menu, I use the place command to click and then shift click to select all the nine photos, click to open, and now the loaded cursor indicates the number nine. So nine images are ready to be placed inside those frames. All I have to do is just click one to place the photo inside the frame and keep doing that for the remaining on these boxes. Now, in the event that you missed as I did here, all you have to do is just under that, and then try again. There we go. Now, nine photos have been placed. 47. Photo Gallery - Object Style: The gallery photos, as you can see, they do not fit proportionally into these frames, and to address that, I will create an psi style and automate the task for future use. Okay. So under the window menu, I'll bring up the bzxtylepanel, and with nothing selected, I'll click on the plus icon to create a new object style, double click on it. I'll give it a name of fit photos and inside the basic attributes. I'll click on the frame fitting options.

To apply the object style, all I have to do is with a selection tool, mark and select all of these frames and just click ones to apply the object style like so. 48. Static vs Live Captions: Now that each photo has a description metadata attached to it, I first need to set up the captions and in design gives us a couple of options. A study caption pulls a caption one time, and if the image or description changes, the caption will not update. With the live caption option, when an image is replaced, the caption gets updated. 49. Captions Set Up - Live Captions: To generate the description metadata or the photos inside the gallery. First, I need to set up the options for the captions. Under the object menu, I'll bring up the caption setup. I would not have anything before or after the description text. I'm going to set up the meta data to the description since every photo inside the Dobe bridge has the description metadata attached to it. For the alignments, I'll set this one to below image, and a positive offset will give a breathing space between the image and the caption. I'm going to set the offset to five points. As for the paragraph style, I'll set this one up on a little step and then click Okay. So to generate those captions with the selection rule, I will mark select all of these frames, and under the object menu, captions then generate live captions, and here they are all the captions coming from Adobe Bridge. Now looking inside the layers panel inside the force layer, I can also see those text frames. In this case, I would like to have those separate. I will shift select those text frames and then click drag and bring them in inside the text layer, like so. 50. Captions - Paragraph Style: So to create a new paragraph style, and I assign it to the text frames. I'll go has as a bit. I'll click to select the text frame, and inside the paragraph Sal panel, I'll click on the plusec to create a new paragraph style, double click on it and give it a name of captions. This is not going to be based on anything. So this is correct. Inside the basic character formats, I'll set the phone family to data P the font style to medium, point size will be set to ten points. Inside, it is in spacing, I'll set the alignment to the center. I'm also going to change the color of the character to whites, and then click. Now, design gives us this indication that there is more text inside this text frame by the plus icon. All I have to do is just double click to fit the text into the frame. We'll click off D select and continue proving upon the style. Double click on that. First, I'll add some border. I'll turn the border on. And zero out all the stroke values, disable the chain icon, set the top border to one and the bottom as well. Here they are. Also going to change the color of the stroke to this column of choice, and for the border actually, I would like only to affect the text rather than the entire column. I set the width, To texts, and then click. Not bad. But I can actually continue improving on this paragraph style. I double click on that. This time, add a background color with the shading on, I'll set this one to this color, my choice. No need to have any transparency and click. Let's go ahead and zoom in a bit and see how's that working out. Not bad. I just want to have border a bit outside the background. I double click back to this. Back on the paragraph border, I will disable the chain icon and set the top let's strike with 0.5, st and the bottom to 0.5. That also looks skits and then click. All I have to do now is basically select each of these text frames and apply the captions paragraph style, and also double click to fit the texts into the frame. I'll do this for the remaining of these text frames. 51. Exporting the Print Magazine: Now that the magazine layout is complete, I'll export the design document as a PDF file format. Under the file menu export and for Sava type, I'll choose Adobe PDF print. Inside the PDF dialog box, we can choose predefined presets from the drop down menu, which is a group of settings that affect the process creating a PDF and are designed to balance file size with quality, depending on how the PDF is used. We can adjust the comparability when we create PDFs and which version to use by choosing an option from the drop down menu. Under pages, we can select all pages and range of pages or spreads. Compression specifies if artwork should be compressed and down sampled, and if so, which method and settings to use. Marks and bleeds specify printers marks, bleeds and slug areas. We can have crop marks, bleed marks, or use documents, bleed settings, which is quite useful. In the outputs, we can have a color conversion, some advanced options, and security like password protection. And lastly, the summary of everything. So I'll go ahead to export as pages. Then head back to the file menu and export the magazine layout Aprets Inside the Adobe reader, the one exported as pages is ideal for professional printing purposes, and the one exported as spread. The left and right pages are nicely glued together, which is ideal for screens. 52.
