Using Adobe Comp CC To Make InDesign Layouts On Your Mobile Phone Or Ipad
Hey there. It's real me back again in this video. We're going to look at something called adobe comp. It's another app. It's different from capture, which we've done. It's another free app. Okay, so there is android and Apple, so go download. It works best on ipad. I don't have an ipad. So I'm going to do it on my phone. Let's go and look at that now. Okay, so instead of adobe capture, see the second one down. Adobe comp. I'm gonna open it up now to be honest. I don't use this one myself but I wanted to share it with you because it's really cool. And the only reason I don't use it is because I don't own an ipad. So I hit the little plus in the bottom, right. And I'll give you a kind of a quick demo mainly because I'm not amazing at this one. Okay, we're going to go down to designing say the letter. Okay, now it's all about drawing shapes. So we're going to put in an image to put an image. You put it in a cross. Remember that one? Okay, I'm gonna make it so it's full with, I'm just drag...
ging the corners here on my phone. My very broken phone with cracked glass still works. Let's put in some headings. So heading is a box with a dot in the corner. Just give it a bit of a tap. Okay, I'm gonna make my boxes, the boxes are bigger and you can see here on the right there's a little slider for going up and down with the font. So I'm going to do that. Okay, and I'm going to drag it. I'm just drawing a line, clicking it once, dragging it up. I'm gonna put him in the middle there and to do body text, it's kind of just multi lines. But then put the dot in the corner, you get kind of like a multi line text box, make my phone so smaller, you see the points on the side there. Okay, I now um yeah, you can it's I guess it's just getting the structure down if you're out and about and you're like, man, I really want to do something like this game and you can add shapes, you can add things from, your library has no shapes, you can add images. I'm going to click on this image that I did there down the bottom left, there's a little import, I can take a photo or I can grow to my new furniture libraries. I'm going to bring in this one takes a little while to download, but you can actually build quite a complex design on my phone. It's near impossible, but on an ipad, it's actually quite amazing. Cool. So I brought that through, I can click on my little Lauren ipsum thing here and you can pick fonts, let's have a look at the fonts down that I'm using the t down the bottom using Source sands like everybody. Okay, these are all type kit fonts use lust script just because it's gonna download it to my phone to use actually, it's going to download it to both my library as well. So I can start using this. So we're not gonna spend too much time on this. Text image is good for a structure. It's all Lauren ipsum, you can go and change the type, you can and use colors from your CC library when you're done though. I'm gonna close it by hitting the X in the top left and once you're done and you get back out to here, it's saved and you'll find it if you go to your creative cloud app on a Mac, it's in the top right. And on a pc it's bottom right. And if you go into assets and files, there's an option that says open folder. Okay. And that's where they all download to. You can take a little while for them to sink. But in there you will find allowed that you can open up in in design. It's pretty crazy. Alright. So that's it for my terrible explanation of what CC comp does. If you're a web designer, you can do the same thing for web layouts. It will pull in some designs to use in Photoshop illustrated that you can use to mock up a site, mobile apps as well. But that's it. All right. I will see you in the next video
