QuarkXPress is used by just about every graphic designer on the planet. It is a precision tool used for the page layout aspect of electronic publishing. Powerful yet user-friendly, Quark can be used for putting together anything from a promotional flier to a film poster or magazine. You have probably created simple documents, such as letters and reports, using word processing applications. You most likely applied basic type formatting, included some graphics in the documents, and printed the documents yourself on a desktop printer. Now you need to create high-quality single- and multiple-page documents for professional publication. In this course, you'll use QuarkXPress to lay out professional quality single and multiple-page documents that include text and graphics, and are designed for professional printing and publication.

Adobe PageMaker is a powerful page layout application you can use to create professional publications. In this course, you will learn advanced techniques and skills as you create a full-page color advertisement for publication in a magazine, and a catalog with tables that you will prepare for both print output and as an Acrobat PDF file designed for desktop printing or electronic distribution via the Web. This course provides the basic principles and techniques to work with PageMaker efficiently and produce great looking documents.
