I used InDesign for this assignment to create a holiday post card. This program I found a lot easier to work with than photo shop. It was easier for me in this program to drop photos and create images and designs myself like I did on the back side of the postcard. I found this program pretty user friendly which I liked a lot for myself. I think it would be super easy for others to pick up the program and get the hang of using it. The only problem I had with the program was the exporting part. I had set my dimensions to a 5×7 like a post card and when I went to export it as a JPEG it was creating a super tiny image. I had tried to start over and do it again because I thought it was just a set up problem like I entered the dimensions wrong but I found that trying again it did the same thing. I tried exporting it in different formats but I ran into the same problem every time.

I think this program is super useful. In the near future when I have to start thinking about and creating business cards I can see myself using this program to do so. I’m sure that there are websites and other programs out there that do the same thing but I liked that I could create it absolutely from scratch instead of working with a template. I could create this exactly the way I wanted to much like I could do with a business card.
