I made a brochure (4 panels each side) in InDesign and I’d like to see what it would look like folded without printing it out yet. Kinda like an e-magazine or issuu, where you can flip the pages. Does anyone know how I would achieve this?
What you could do is make a new indesign document with the page size set to the height and width of the panels and make 8 pages so you can drag and drop each panel onto the appropriate page and export it as a pdf. Then you’ll be able to flip through each page one by one.
That’s about the best you can do in terms of seeing each panel by itself. There’s lifelike brouchure mockups for Photoshop that you can download that will allow you to see what it would look like printed and folded sitting on a table, but they’re not interactive so you can’t flip the pages. Only other thing I can suggest is if you happen to be good at 3D design and animation you could save each panel as a JPEG or PNG and model a brochure that you can place them on and animate it unfolding. Other than that there’s nothing I know of that allows you to do that.
