Engage your audience with desktop publishing software for print, digital media, app design, and graphic art.
Publishing has moved far beyond the era of the printed word, and desktop publishing is keeping pace. While printed books and magazines remain important, increasingly audiences expect more from digital media. Create interactive online publications complete with video content and responsive graphics. Build apps and websites. Design artful print media, including posters, album art, and more. Break new ground.
Desktop publishing for every project.
Engage your readers with high-quality print and digital publications created with our industry-standard layout and design software. Choose from dozens of controls for fonts, lines, boxes, textures and colour. Take advantage of advanced controls for interactive content and video and the ability to output in standard publishing formats like PDF, EPUB and HTML.
InDesign does more with layouts.
Print, digital or web. Select a template or design your own. Decide on one page or multiple pages for the scope of your desktop publishing project.
Design your layout
Frames are the organising unit of your layout. They contain content such as text and graphics. Use them to create the look of your project.
Fill your frames with your chosen content — text, images or rich media — and refine your design for maximum impact.
Export in the formats of your choice, including EPUB, PDF, HTML and EPS or create print separations for a printer.
Flow your text around initial capitals, infographics, pictures and video. Take your reader on a visual journey through your story.
Imagery in tables
Punch up your tables and infographics with images to hold the eye.
