Has anyone had any experience with Lynda.com?.... I recently
heard good things about it, and just got "spam" for it after coughing
up big bucks for some CS3 components (man, when did adobe start
selling automobile priced products?)
Anyway, I am facing the beginning of a digital pre-press course
at school, with no background ( or probably talent, other than tee
shirts) in graphic design. I have never even used InDesign or other
similar, and believe I will be behind the curve in this situation.
There is an awful lot to be said for a good graphic designer, who
perhaps can't even draw. A good one is invaluable, and is essential
in providing a platform for illustrations to become effective
So I strive to become at least somewhat familiar with the designers
world, especially with publishers moving more and more of what was
traditionally their concerns to the illustrator because of the
digital front. Sometimes the lines between fine art, Illustration,
and graphic design are fairly distinct, although the ability to
wander across these lines is invaluable.
perhaps there is Phd subject matter somewhere in this.
Ah, but I digress....
anyone have experience with Lynda.com, and what do you think about
it? Your opinions would be valued before I let yet more gobs of
money fall through the hole in my pocket.
