Editors' Review

Swift Publisher is a low-cost desktop publishing program that's perfect for graphic-design neophytes who need to produce simple documents such as posters, letterhead, cards, and fliers.

Fitting for a beginner-friendly app, Swift Publisher launches with an assistant that gives you access to more than 100 different templates, in categories that include brochures, catalogs, and newsletters, with handy thumbnail previews that let you browse through your options. Once you're into a new document, Swift Publisher gives you plenty of easy editing options, from altering text to changing backgrounds and inserting photos (either your own, or using a built-in library of more than 40,000 images). As you get more proficient, you can also use features that you'll usually find only in more-advanced apps, such as layers, master pages, and fairly detailed text and photo manipulation.

Swift Publisher certainly has its limitations (for example, you can't export to HTML, just to TIFF, JPEG, EPS, and PDF), but for a basic layout program, it can help you get the job done.
