Introduction to Adobe Digital Publishing Suite

The Adobe Digital Publishing Suite is a collection of plug-ins for Adobe InDesign that allow us to create, distribute, monetize and optimize engaging content and publications for tablet devices.

Plug-ins for CS 6 are freely available for download from the Adobe site. Once the plug-ins are installed, you will have access to two new palettes found in the Window Menu: Folio Overlays and Folio Builder. You will also make use of additional pallets found within the Interactive category of palettes.

The following tutorials explain how the DPS palettes work in InDesign, as well as walk you through how to create interactive content using the DPS overlays and interactive palettes.

It’s important to note that although the DPS plug ins are free, you must have a publishing license through Adobe to distribute the content you make in the Apple App Store and Android Marketplace.
