simple but powerful

I needed an app that was low cost, simple to use and powerful. Twenty years ago for me that was InDesign and Photoshop. These days I can’t afford anything Adobe. I downloaded Publisher Lite and was able to quickly design and layout a photo collage for a family christmas project within about an hour I was hooked and I went and bought the full version. I’ve tried many of the templates to create various other projects. So far In 1 day of using the Publisher Plus, I have been able to get several weeks of work down that I’ve struggled with. I have tried other page design and layout programs that have failed to work the way I needed. I hope to continue to discover all I am able to create with this program.

Works for me……!!!

I have not used it extensively and most what i do is on a clean slate…a learning curve as is with any app of this sort…a little bit buggy…not sure is the app or might be the computer, though i am running 12 GB ram, but also not OSX "E Captain”…Quite a bit of due deligence on your part if you are looking for clip art and such…google image provides quite a bit…keep a folder for such and easy to load those images to the program…a few things different i wish were in the program, and would be nice to set my own defaults for some things…over-all pretty pleased...the more you use it you can figure in some shortcuts and faster work time…i feel the price is quite fair (back in the day you’d pay much, much more)…...

Love it!

Use it on my Mac in place of Microsoft Publisher which is not available for the Mac. Does every thing I want to create book covers for CreateSpace.
One request for improvement: When selecting colors for fonts, etc, Give the pantone #, so I can replicate it somewhere else on the cover.
Easy to use.
