Freelance Artworker creates print ready artwork

InDesign is the best programme for print layout, creating a precise size and shape for the printers. Always confirm from the printer the layout details, sizes, bleed, PDF etc. before creating artwork, this will save you lots of time. Sarahjane personally creates finished (final) artwork from the start of a project, saving time before a print deadline.

Using Loxley Colour photo book software for layout

Photo books are a beautiful object to own and can look very professional. When my client asked me to create her family album I was very excited. She wanted a simple layout, using scanned photos and memorabilia. I have used Loxley Colour a few times before and created beautiful photo books using their software. Once downloaded onto my clients computer, I could create a bespoke layout for her images. Please contact me using the email form with any enquiries.

Acrobat comments are the quickest way to highlight artwork amends

Acrobat comments are the quickest to highlight artwork corrections by Sarahjane Jackson, Artworker

PDF comments and sticky notes

Viewing your artwork PDF proof and highlighting changes quickly, helps everyone concerned. Here’s how. Without having to describe where on a page they are and using clear simple instructions such as delete, replace or add, all help speed the process up. Amends can be shared and added to the PDF artwork and these clearly show the persons name, replies can be added too. Did you can also copy ‘n’ paste text to and from a PDF, keeping human error to a minimum.

For the Artworker this is a great visual of pre amends, as pages can move. A reference and a check list, enabling amends to be made quickly.  Acrobat Reader is free to download here. If you would like a lesson or advice please contact Sarahjane here.
