A quick rundown of features in Microsoft® Publisher 2010
Microsoft Publisher was created with the purpose of making impactful, edgy, and new age digital and print publications for marketing and branding purposes. Since it is a specialized software, it comes with certain features that are unique to it and extremely relevant for the job. Whether you are creating e-mail newsletters, product brochures, event invites, or maybe just a Christmas greeting – you will find that Publisher does the job brilliantly. Here are some features that make Publisher one of the best desktop publishing applications available in the market:
Huge library of built in templates – Now you don’t need to reinvent the wheel every time you need to go for a little ride. There are many professionally designed templates available for download and ready use. These templates cover everything from business communication to birthday greetings. You may either use the templates that come bundled or download more from the Internet.
Integrated photo editor– For minor photo editing jobs like cropping, resizing, placement, and color tweaking, you get a photo editor that forms a part of Publisher 2010. No more hampering around with third party software for odd photo jobs. Use, preview, and implement the changes from within the interface.
Enhanced typography– One thing which can make or break a design project is the choice of fonts. Publisher 2010 comes with native compatibility with OpenType fonts which opens a whole new realm of possibilities in font selection. Use the provided stylistic set or create your own custom look by downloading fonts.
Location suggestions – Managing and placing the various components that make up a design project like images, text boxes, charts, and borders can be a pain. Not with Publisher 2010. While working with objects, Publisher will automatically suggest the placement and alignment for them, making your job that much easier.
These are just a few features of the new Publisher, there are many more features just waiting to be used to their full potential by you. When it comes to desktop publishing, the buck stops here.
