Petits livres et mini-livres Pourquoi un format livre ? Ce format livre change le statut de l'écrit, on n'écrit plus seulement pour l'enseignant dans le but d'être corrigé et noté, c'est à dire voir son texte augmenté de quelques remarques en vert (rouge ou violet selon les goûts du professeur) mais on écrit pour les "autres", les lecteurs, on écrit pour être lu. L'écrit prend tout son sens. Le scripteur n'est plus un élève qui a "bon" ou "faux" mais un auteur qui va emmener son public avec des mots.

Exemples de livres produits avec Lecriveron La taille de la police et la répartition du texte dépend de la longueur du texte. La mise en page peut être différente de ces exemples.

Need To Learn InDesign Fast Peter Spier wrote:I've been staying out of this up to now, but I can't hold myself back any longer.Do you have any experience in print production in Photoshop? Do you know the differences between spot and process colors, and RGB, CMYK, and Lab spaces? Do you understand resolution and resampling, and when it's OK and when it's not? Do you know what bleed is? Imposition? Let's see, I'm currently a digital restoration artist so... yeah, definitely have "experience in print production in Photoshop". I'm not suggesting that I'm going to be an expert at it in no time, but I will be proficient with InDesign by this time next week, one way or another. I appreciate any and all CONSTRUCTIVE criticism, though for those for whom this post makes you "LMAO", I suppose I'm glad I could make your day more entertaining.
