If you thought Christmas Eve’s giveaway was a slam dunk, then how about this? For 24 hours from midday December 25th, we’re giving you Serif PagePlus X4, a full-blown DTP package worth $99.99, for free!
Serif PagePlus manages to combine a collection of powerful features – including an excellent in-app photo editing tool – with wizards, templates and a user-friendly interface that make it suitable for novices and DTP magicians alike.
It’s why PagePlus consistently wins awards for its DTP offering, striking the perfect balance between power and usability. Fire it up for the first time you’re given a choice of professional templates covering a wide range of types and uses – including websites as well as newsletters, flyers and brochures. But you can just as easily start from scratch and design magazine-style grids using the app’s tools.
The app’s core features also impress – flowing text between columns is simple, and a wide range of wrap and layout options enabling you to get things just the way you want. You’ll find other professional-grade tools too – the ability to anchor pictures, shapes and text frames to a fixed spot, for example, or dynamic guides that simplify the task of lining up and snapping objects into place.
While you can easily import text from a variety of file types, PagePlus provides its own incredibly decent word processor for writing (and editing) text on the fly, with word counts, thesaurus, spell check and automated tools for creating TOCs and indexes.
Importing graphics is easy – PagePlus supports a wide variety of image formats – and you can even edit them within PagePlus itself thanks to its new PhotoLab editing tool. It’s perfect whether you’re attempting to cut someone out of a background or perform quick-fire fixes like removing red eye. It even includes tools for creating your own vector graphics, with gradients, filters, 3D lighting, surface effects and more.
Once your document is ready to go, you can – of course – print it in the usual way, or export it as PDF. PagePlus X4 even supports interactive PDF slideshows, complete with page transitions and media clips, as well as web pages.
Long story short, PagePlus X4 is a DTP tool no serious design enthusiast can do without, so do yourself a favour, bookmark the Serif PagePlus X4 giveaway page now and set your alarm for 12pm EST (9am PT or 5pm GMT) for Friday December 25th to get your free code before succumbing to the third sherry of the day.
