Presenting The Course & Compendium Series

Each book in this new series serves as both a full course and a comprehensive reference. Written by our instructors Steve Laskevitch and Jason Hoppe, each book's course section is based on our long-tested curricula. The step-by-step lessons expose you to all of the software's features in practical contexts and best practices and workflows.

After completing either that course or one of those here at Luminous Works, the Compendium section will serve for years as a trusted reference. Published by Rocky Nook and available in print and for your favorite e-reader device.

Ask your local bookseller if they have or can get it for you.

Steve’s newest book! Adobe InDesign CC: A Complete Course and Compendium of Features is your guide to building publications great or small in this ubiquitous page layout application. And just as in his InDesign classes, you'll learn the procedures needed to use InDesign professionally to create engineering proposals, marketing collateral, spec sheets, magazines, newsletters, books, and more. The Compendium will be useful to you after finishing the book's exercises or after taking Luminous Works InDesign classes.

Steve’s upcoming Photoshop book Adobe Photoshop CC: A Complete Course and Compendium of Features guides you through creating, editing, and enhancing images and designs in Adobe Photoshop.

Its Compendium will serve as a fabulous reference either after taking our Photoshop classes or completing the book's lessons. It also provides insights into Dimension, Adobe's 3D compositing program, and Photoshop on the iPad.

Coming in May 2020, available for preorder now.

Our dear Jason Hoppe's upcoming Illustrator book!
