For an out of practice layout designer, this is just good enough.

I was the layout designer/editor for the features section and front page of the daily college paper making $10 an hour in 1994. I am also an amateur photographer. The Adobe Suite subscription service is a bit overkill for me for how much money it costs every month. Occasionally, I would like to do a flyer or a brochure or something and this is just good enough for my needs. I can layout photos with exposure controls and masks and filters. I can add backgrounds and layout text. I can rotate and flip objects. I haven’t even gotten into the document templates yet, but it looks like there are lots of brochures and menus and business cards and such. There is also expansion packs of additional templates that can be purchased for 99 cents.

Does what I need it to do

I am the volunteer Executive Director for a VERY small, grassroots non-profit. I am the jack of all trades with our organization which includes having to create posters, flyers, postcards, etc. I had Publisher with my old job and have also used Adobe Suite, but we cannot afford the costs right now. I find Publisher Lite online easy to use and it does what I need it to do all for free. If I want to get a little fancier, the costs for upgrading are much more affordable than most others out there. I do find the sizing a little challenging, especially when trying to fit to U.S. standard sizes. Still, overall I am very satisfied with it.

Thank you!

I never give reviews but this app and it’s developers deserve it. I searched for hours to find a flyer maker / illustration software, after the one that came standard on my Mac would not function. It wasn’t until I found this app that I was able to make a nice flyer for a benefit to help a child born with a rare and serious congenital disorder. This app helped me to create promotional material to potentially help raise money for this infant who is fighting to survive. Thank you to the developers for making this free as I could not afford to pay for a flyer maker.
