Review: Publisher Plus

Review: Publisher Plus


Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
PearlMountain Technology released Publisher Page for Mac on May 1, 2014. I have had the tremendous opportunity to test this software out. If you are into desktop publishing (creating flyers, brochures, etc.), then this is the software for you. In my opinion, it is very user friendly and straightforward especially for those of you who just beginning to learn about desktop publishing. So let's get right to it--the review of this product!
Template Screen
Pre-made Templates
When you first click on the Publisher Plus icon, the user will be shown the template page where one can choose to design from a blank canvas or choose from over 170 plus pre-made templates! As shown in the photo above, there are various types of options available depending on what it is you want to design. If the user wants to be creative on his or her own, then the blank canvas (template) is the way to go. You either choose to design in landscape or portrait mode. If the user starts off designing in portrait mode but decides to design should be in landscape mode, the user can make that change within the workspace area.
After either choosing a pre-made template or starting fresh with a blank template, the user is taken to the design workspace (shown above). It is here where the designs and the creativity of the user begins. Some of the key features include the following:
•Personalize opacity, mirror effect & flip of the objects.
•Select 230 plus preset backgrounds or customize background with your own images.
•Add color fill, stroke and shadow to any object.
•Select multiple objects to align, center and make same size of the objects as a whole.
•Auto snap between one object and another, and between an object and the page margin as well.
•Crop photo or manipulate the frame easily.
•Apply frames, mask, filters, etc. to photos and it is easy to adjust image colors.
•Manage layers of different objects.
•Support undo/redo, copy/paste and other common editing features.
•Support zooming in/out on the page, and Fit Width/Fit Page to view the page.
•Support displaying rulers in the editing panel for better alignment of objects.
One of my favorite features of the software is the ability to export what I have created via social media (See above). Users are able to do the following with the export feature:
Export, print and share conveniently
•Print the pages directly.
•Export the pages as JPEG, TIFF, PNG, etc.
•Share the pages via Email, Message, Airdrop, Twitter, Facebook and Flickr.
Overall Impressions
Publisher Plus is a simple yet powerful desktop publishing software that will help users create designs in no time. The friendly user interface makes it easy to navigate through the program. With hundreds of templates available the user will have plenty of help with trying to create a design that catches the attention of the intended audience! I would recommend this software to those who are looking for software this is cost efficient ($19.99) and one that offers several features!
Buy publisher from iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/publisher-plus/id862880554?ls=1&mt=12

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
