Today I have an Adobe InDesign tutorial video entitled a magazine layout in Adobe InDesign tutorial, a look at laying out a magazine document both for print and we use, in InDesign. I have a link below that shows my most recent magazine project that I worked on in InDesign which is also shown in the tutorial today. My method works for me where I design he artwork in Photoshop, and then transfer that over to Adobe InDesign, where I also add the text and logo files to prevent blurry printing solutions.
So if you want to know how to layout a magazine in Adobe InDesign, watch my video today and I hope that the Adobe InDesign tutorial is a helpful one 🙂

    Perhaps your title should indicate that this is using Photoshop. I was looking for an Indesign tutorial, and unfortunately this didn’t meet my needs and I felt annoyed I spent my time watching.

    How to you create a design so that you change pages by clicking the "arrow" buttons like the magazine shown in the beginning and not peeling the pages?

    I really liked this tutorial. InDesign is one of my favorite programs so I was looking for a quick tutorial to share with my students. The second part/print portion will be great for them, but I grade them on and teach them that they have to do text inside of InDesign. I read your reason why you did it all in Photoshop, but I can’t endorce that because that will not pass them. 🙂 I love all of your tutorials though. I do reference those to them. 🙂

    *Notes On This Video*
    This tutorial is NOT a video on how to design a magazine from scratch in InDesign, it is a tutorial on how to layout a magazine in InDesign. Granted, it is probably a better idea for workflow purposes to add all text / logo content within InDesign, and all artwork in Photoshop, imported to InDesign. However, if the final outcome is fine once printed or like the example in this video the design is *for web* design the pages in Photoshop totally can work.

    The reason I laid the artwork out in InDesign is because there are no bleed options readily available in Photoshop. I do have various other InDesign tutorials that show how to design a print project totally in InDesign, but this video is only about laying out a design for print.

    It just boggles me how you just don’t benefit from the incredible layout features InDesign offers. Yes we must use Photoshop to edit and prepare images and even make some special effects in some type, and I do use it for that. but Photoshop is no match to InDesign when we talk about layout setting. Another thing, the text don’t get as crisp if you set it Photoshop, compared to setting it in InDesign.

    I love your video , I’m confused about why do you use a 3mm bleed in the Indesign file but a 6mm bleed on the Photoshop file?

    I really enjoy your videos as I have mentioned before but this one wasn’t your most helpful. As I was looking at it, I wondered why you did not just lay out the whole thing out in InDesign. There really wasn’t a need to crop anything in photoshop because InDesign can do that and for the creating outlines, although I found something I didn’t know Indesign could do, it just increases the files size exponentially. Please do not be offended by anything that I am saying. You a have me a subscriber for life bro, there is just a much quicker and efficient way at doing it.

    Nice tutorial again! Just what i needed. I am working currently on a handbook design…but it is mainly text and tables. Can I design the tables in photoshop and just import them to inDesign? would it still look blurry on print?

    And one more thing…Your playlist man!! Is there a way you can share it maybe on soundcloud….love your taste in music similar to mine. Thanks

    Hey, just getting into Print, learning the basics and everything. For measurements, why do we need to compensate the Bleed in Photoshop (enlarge by 6mm all around) for the 3mm bleed in InDesign? Is PS splitting that 6mm height into 3 for the top and 3 for bottom?

    Why did you decide to use Jpeg instead of keeping it in the native format or TIFF? I know PSDs are larger, but wouldn’t it be worth it to preserve editability?

    ..but You not only work with photos in PS, but also text??!
    as we know, text in Photoshop is raster, text must be made in Indesign – for good quality, isn’t it?

    Hi there. A quick question. Why did you halve the spread image in PS into two different images and them place them separately into ID. Would it not be easier to just place the entire image into ID as a spread?

  22. Ron Duckett
    Ron Duckett dit :

    After reading the comment of others that have viewed this video, I see the goal you were shooting for but, again, I agree with Jessica C. InDesign is where both the Photoshop and Illustrator file comes together. It just seems like double work having to lay it out the photo editing/painting program than in the actual layout program.

    If I wanted to make separate pages, would I then save as single page continuous? Also what is the key difference between "facing " and "cover page"?

    -Love the tutorial by the way!
