Delivery & Duration

  • Face-to-face: 1 day, OR

General Outline

Microsoft Publisher is great for creating brochures, flyers, newsletters, web sites, price lists, and other publications.
This course focuses on planning your publication from the pre-computer stage so that no time is wasted. You will look at techniques for combining and formatting graphics and text for the most effective presentation of your message.
In this course you examine the different ways to output your publication and touch on converting your publication to a web site for online viewing and to Acrobat PDF for sending to a commercial printer.
Bring along your questions and problems and if you like examples of what you’ve been producing. We can then show you how to create or improve on those designs with Publisher. You will create a typical example of a newsletter that incorporates lots of design elements.
