InCopy: The Key to Editorial Workflow
Tuesday, 1:00 pm – 3:15 pm Central
We wanted to call this session “InCopy for Fun and Profit” because… well, like we say, “if you’re not having fun, you’re not doing it right!” But can software for editors actually be “fun”? It sure can, especially when you consider the alternative: endless revision rounds, mark-up, and design proofs for everyone involved. And just watch how profitable it can be when it reduces your publication’s turnaround time in half. (And at only $4.99/month, it’s Adobe’s most affordable Creative Cloud app.)
Join InCopy/InDesign workflow expert Anne-Marie Concepcion as she demonstrates how it works, starting from a “first proof” partially-finished InDesign layout all the way to sending the final, packaged publication to the printer. She’ll explain when InCopy is the best solution as well as when it isn’t (and alternatives to consider), as well as strategies for gradually incorporating InCopy with your existing workflow.
