I am headed to Staples tonight to look at software for our quilt guild newsletter. I want to be able to include titles, text blocks wherever I want to put them, and digital pictures wherever I want to put them. Various colors, various fonts. I tried to do what I could in Word but there isn’t much flexibility in where you can drop pictures so I figure I need a packaged deal for low-level publishing.
I will be loading it on a PC as I heard about this cool free! PDF converter ( pdf995.com ) which supposedly will convert anything to PDF and that’s the format the copyshop wants.
So, I think I would just buy an inexpensive package that can do a simple layout of the elements above. Any suggestions of standouts in this area? Any pitfalls I should beware of? [For example, Broderbund’s The Print Shop looked promising but on-line reviews are scathing!]
