Publisher Plus is a comprehensive page layout-designing tool that allows you to create professional prints. The application enables you to make original printable designs, such as brochures, flyers, posters, magazines, business cards, menus, envelopes, disk covers, and whatever image-based designs you may think of.

The program opens with a template window that displays the document categories conveniently organized into suggestively-named folders, so that you can easily pick up the type of document you are looking for. While browsing through the provided templates, you have the chance to preview them at various scales – the scale is controlled easily by means of a handy slider. The templates you like most can be saved as Favorites. What is more, you can create page layout patterns of your own, which you can preserve for later use.

Once a template is selected, the working window appears on the screen, providing comprehensive editing features. They range from page size and orientation to applying special effects and thorough edits. Therefore, you can customize the page dimensions by selecting either a standard or a custom size. The measuring unit you are used to work with can be determined at Preferences, together with some saving and displaying options. What is remarkable about this tool is that you can create multi-page documents, each page individually customized.

The program helps you put your creative skills into practice by offering you exhaustive editing functions. Therefore, you are able to change the default background with a favorite color, tile, stretch, or picture. In addition, you can add images from within the app or from external sources, select clip-art elements to animate your project, insert shapes, texts, and calendars if necessary. Each element supports individual adjustments in terms of position, size, style, and effects. In addition, you can rotate the items to custom angles, as well as flip them horizontally or vertically. For better emphasizing specific elements and photos, you can apply masks and frames with special effects. Luminosity issues like contrast, saturation, exposure, and brightness can also be tailored. Once all the adjustments are made, you can share your project via Email, Message, AirDrop, Twitter, Facebook, and Flickr directly from within the application. In addition, you can send your document to the printer or export it as a PDF file and various common image formats.

With a clear approach and complex editing options, Publisher Plus is a full-featured desktop publishing tool that helps you create exquisite page layouts for various uses. The application comes with miscellaneous document categories, comprising a quite consistent amount of templates, which you can customize as you prefer.
