InDesign to WordPress: iziExport review for InDesign Magazine

iziExport is an Adobe InDesign plug-in by Revolumedia that makes it easier to convert InDesign documents to WordPress posts, so it’s an intriguing option if you’re interested in converting some of your InDesign documents for publication on a WordPress-based web site.

Getting the Most Out of the Adobe User Forums: CreativePro.com article

In an article I wrote for CreativePro, you’ll learn some simple strategies to help you get a great answer more quickly in the Adobe Forums — a free community-based resource for questions about Adobe software such as Photoshop and InDesign. Many forum members use Adobe software in production every day, so they can have useful insights and are sometimes aware of problems before they’re officially documented by Adobe. I’ve participated in the Adobe Forums for many years, and am now an Adobe Community Professional there.

Choosing an Adobe Portfolio Layout: CreativePro.com article

Choosing an Adobe Portfolio Layout is a companion article to one I wrote earlier for CreativePro (Using Adobe Portfolio). This article helps you decide which Adobe Portfolio layout should be the basis for your website. What really drives your choice out of the seven layouts currently available? What can you change about the layout you choose? Is it easy to change your mind?

If “build my website” is still on your To Do list, Adobe Portfolio is a quick and easy way to get a focused body of work online. Especially if you’re an Adobe Creative Cloud member, since Adobe Portfolio is available only as a benefit of an Creative Cloud membership (including the $9.99/month Photography Plan).

Using Adobe Portfolio: CreativePro.com article

If “build my website” is still on your To Do list, Adobe Portfolio is a quick and easy way to get a focused body of work online. Especially if you’re an Adobe Creative Cloud member, since Adobe Portfolio is available only as a benefit of an Creative Cloud membership (including the $9.99/month Photography Plan).

How does Adobe Portfolio compare to the long list of other and often more established web-browser-based site builders? How easy is it to learn and use Portfolio? Does it have the features that photographers and designers need to show their best work?

I try it out and then tell you what I think in my article for CreativePro.com, which you can read at the following link:
