I am currently taking a class at my college on the basic operations of Indesign and I am trying to find out exactly what kinds of things people use this program for. I have purchased the entire master collection, but since I'm learning Indesign right now I thought I would inquire as to it's most common uses. Any thoughts on this, however brief, would be appreciated.
Historically, InDesign has been a page layout program — used for designing everything from a business card to a billboard; from a leaflet to a text book. It's the best way to combine text, graphics and photos into a single document. These days it's also used to create digital publications (including interactivity, video and audio) and you can even build entire web pages from within InDesign.
