I am in love

March 21, 2012

…with the newsletter that I just wrote and designed and laid out and made beautiful for the last five hours.

It was done in Scribus, a free publishing/design software. It’s not the greatest program out there, but I am biased because of my extensive work with Adobe InDesign.

But hey. I don’t have the funds to purchase InDesign, and Scribus really isn’t that bad. It makes layers and styles simple. It has a grid option, even though the “snap to” option is awful. There’s a very hand wiki to help with any snags you might encounter. And it works well on a low-powered machine. I personally like it a hell of a lot more than Microsoft Publisher.

If you are into this sort of thing and can’t afford the Adobe software, then I’d highly recommend Scribus.
