There are a lot of great free resources out there for creating graphics for your blog or business, and these can be a good avenue for beginners. But as your business grows and matures, there comes a time when professional design software will be the next step.

An example, you’re an interior designer however when you reach the clients house, you turn up with some PVA glue and some feathers. It’s not really the impression you want to give and certainly does not.

Using word-art is just not going to cut it and look rather unprofessional, instead, using InDesign you can create drop shadows and beveling, giving a sleek and professional look to your text.

 InDesign was created for the intention of producing better print quality, sharp text and the ability to easily convert your documents to beautiful pdf formats, as well as being able to make business cards and other documents I have already listed.

It is both used for online publishing as well as offline. Text and images look phenomenal.

It is also possible to collaborate InDesign with other Adobe programmes such as Photoshop and Illustrator to really introduce your creative sparkle.

Inserting images, creating shapes and using colour is so easy and aids your creativity instead of consuming your time.
