What's the learning curve on InDesign (CS5) ?

I ask because a few people I know are looking for simple brochures / print stuff, and I wouldn't mind having this as an occasional part-time gig.

I'm a little better than average with PS, if that means anything, but I have heard that PS has the higher learning curve out of most of the suite.

Thanks :wavey:

Don't think of it as a design program where you build the graphics. But one were you bring in graphics you've created in PS or AI and need to add text to.

It's very easy to learn just by googling the few effects you want to do. Otherwise it's just robust text boxes & formatting options.

ov3n is right.

the learning curve isn't that long. probably about 2 weeks for me. I do recommend picking up a book since learning the formatting options (paragraph styles, etc) would be a LOT easier. There are just a bunch of little tiny things you need to know with working with typography and a book or lynda.com tutorials would help you a lot. once explained the program is very pretty powerful yet simple
