A friend of mine lives way out in the sticks. Like, way out. Directions to her house include shit like “make a left onto the dirt road past the second tree”. As a result, she can’t get any faster internet access than dial-up. Clever stuff Verizon’s mobile internet do-hickey don’t reach there and even satellite service has some kind of issue there because trees block the line-of-sight or something.
Anyhoo, she recently she picked up a new mac and Adobe CS4 Design Premium. She’s migrating all of her print and online* publishing from a very old PC on which she ran an ancient copy of Wordperfect and MS Publisher as her layout tools. She wants to know how to do everything in CS4: inDesign, Dreamweaver, Illustrator, Fireworks, etc. All of it. She’d like some DVDs or software or something to give her instruction in the basics, that does not require an internet connection to install/view. Any recommendations?
- by “online” I mean “puts files on a flash stick and gives them to me to FTP up to her website”. Since macs are way too hip to have some retarded shit like a modem (puhshaw!), this process will likely continue.
