InDesign to ePUB: Converting Print Books to eBooks

This focused course is for those already work­ing in print pub­lish­ing and need to incor­po­rate epub­lish­ing into the work­flow. You will learn not only how to cre­ate new ePUB ebooks but also how to con­vert your exist­ing print pub­li­ca­tions to ebook, all while using your actual pub­li­ca­tions and assets rather than some arbi­trary “exer­cise files.”

Advanced eBooks: Fixed Layout Picture Books & Children’s Books (from InDesign)

You will learn the process and tech­niques of cre­at­ing fully illus­trated (full-page image) pic­ture books and children’s books using indus­try stan­dard desk­top lay­out soft­ware Adobe InDesign.

Advanced eBook Design

The best, most styl­ish, most inter­est­ing ebooks (ePUB, Mobi, iBooks, Kindle, more) are not those that use the default for­mat­ting and styling exported by InDesign, QuarkXPress, Pages, Word, or another pro­gram. The ebooks that peo­ple respond to most use dif­fer­ent fonts, col­ored text, drop­caps, head­ings and sub­heads, embed­ded video, improved typog­ra­phy, and other enhance­ments we’ll cover in this deep dive into ebook design.

InDesign Advanced

If you want to thor­oughly mas­ter InDesign this is the course you need. It helps you achieve pro­fes­sional results through effi­cient pro­duc­tion work­flows and advanced cre­ative tech­niques. You’ll learn how to col­lab­o­rate within work­groups; work effi­ciently with text, objects, and vari­able text; per­fect your printed and dig­i­tal out­put; get the most out of InDesign’s trans­parency and effects tools, and much more, all with a real-world work­flow focus and hands-on instruction.


Adobe InDesign is the world’s stan­dard page lay­out appli­ca­tion. InDesign dri­ves the world of print and elec­tronic pub­lish­ing by pow­er­ing every­thing from daily news­pa­pers to occa­sional updates to the neigh­bor­hood deli’s menu, from print and ebook pro­duc­tion for the largest pub­lish­ing houses and most famous authors to the first-time self-publisher to the hob­by­ist who wants to make a one-off pic­ture book. In an intu­itive, stream­lined inter­face InDesign pro­vides pro­fes­sional and ama­teur pub­lish­ers unpar­al­lelled lay­out abil­i­ties, typo­graphic con­trol, image place­ment fea­tures, and out­put chan­nels. With InDesign you can send your projects to print, PDF, EPUB ebook, and to iPad and other tablets.
