Bloomington, IN, United States, 2007/02/08 - Brain Cable’s division, Prepress Training Solution, announces the release of a Newspaper Ad Production mini-course created in conjunction with a premier newspaper ad production team.
The new course, consisting of several short tutorials, combines some of the most popular and useful newspaper production software topics into a short course that can help speed graphic production time. The mini-course, designed for newspaper ad designers and graphic artists, is available at FasterAds.com.
A recent survey conducted at GraphExpo revealed that 86% of software users admitted to spending up to an hour daily searching for answers to their file issues and software questions. When considering the costs involved in wasting an hour a day, each company is spending about $5,000 per employee each year to search for solutions to their software problems. Collaboration with a premier newspaper production team demonstrated that ad production specialists can eliminate many of their problems with targeted testing and training in the software programs they use most often.
“From file problems to software updates, we know that ad production teams face tough, time-consuming software challenges,” says Debbie Goodman, President of Brain Cable. She continues, “Prepress Training Solution is pleased to offer this free mini-course, which allows production managers to determine if their staff has the proper level of knowledge needed to work efficiently, or if they have larger problems that could be solved through more targeted training.”
The Newspaper Ad Production course covers many topics, including:
- Adobe Creative Suite Integration
- Actions and Batch Processing in Adobe Photoshop
- Text and Pictures in Quark
- Masking and Clipping Paths
- Adobe Illustrator's Live Paint Feature
- Mac OS X
and features popular print production software titles, such as:
