InDesign: Generating Shade Swatches (Color Stepped with Black) in InDesign

In this tuto­r­i­al, a free les­son from the Pluralsight video course, Designing in Duotone in InDesign by Pariah Burke (http://​abbrv​.it/​v​i​d​I​D​D​uotone), you will learn how to gen­er­ate shade swatch­es. Tint swatch­es cre­ate swatch­es of a col­or mixed with white. Shade swatch­es are that col­or mixed with black, cre­at­ing dark­ened col­or steps. Shade swatch­es are very use­ful and easy to cre­ate with this sim­ple technique.

This tech­nique works with all ver­sions of InDesign.
