Adobe InDesign is a desktop publishing and typesetting software application produced by Adobe Systems. It is equipped to create products such as posters, flyers, brochures, magazines, newspapers, presentations, books and ebooks. InDesign can also publish content suitable for tablet devices in combination with Adobe Digital Publishing Suite.
Graphic designers and production artists use Indesign for creating and laying out periodical publications, posters, and print media. It also supports export to EPUB and SWF formats to create e-books and digital publications, including digital magazines, and content suitable for consumption on tablet computers.
In addition, InDesign supports XML, style sheets, and other coding markups, making it suitable for exporting tagged text content for use in other digital and online formats. The Adobe InCopy word processor uses the same formatting engine as InDesign.
InDesign is the first choice for designing flyers and other image-oriented deliverables for its ability to streamline text styles and page layouts. Illustrator is a good alternative, especially for simpler, image-heavy projects. Making it ideal for UX/UI design applications.
