Print Shop Pro Publisher Review
Our "TopTenREVIEWS Bronze Award Winner" is Print Shop Pro Publisher by Broderbund. This excellent program's strengths include tools for working with photographs and clipart images. It has some of the best tools we've seen for enhancing or repairing an image.
Print Shop Pro Publisher Deluxe was more difficult to use, so it ranked lower than our first and second-ranked products.
Ease of Use:
Installing Print Shop Pro Publisher Deluxe was frustrating-it closed all of our open browser windows just so it could load a web-based registration form. This could be annoying if you're trying to multitask while waiting for the program to install.
Print Shop Pro Publisher Deluxe includes a few nice features including a wizard for creating stationery sets and calendars. The calendar wizard allows you to select from a number of ready-made calendars based on themes, like sports, fruits and flowers, template styles like half banner horizontal, single page and whole image and the view of the calendar, for example month, week or day. You can also import events into your calendar, such as Dutch holidays, musician's birthdays and more.
Print Shop Pro Publisher Deluxe also has a small business center that documents how to meet the legal requirements when starting a business, as well as tips on building a business plan and raising money.
Print Shop Pro Publisher Deluxe is among the best when it comes to working with photographs and clipart images. The built-in photo workshop lets you crop images into different shapes and apply special effects to the edges (soft edges, outline edges or transparent edges).
The only graphic option that Print Shop Pro Publisher Deluxe lacks compared to the top-ranked product is the ability to instantly create 3—D effects.
Print Shop Pro Publisher can apply text effects to headline and body text. Simply right-click the text box to apply a drop shadow, add a glow or shape or wrap the text around an image. Conveniently use the text tools either from the toolbar or by right clicking the mouse.
The printing and sharing features in Print Shop Pro Publisher Deluxe make it stand out from other desktop publishing programs. It includes "pro print technology" to improve the print quality of photos, graphics, headlines and text. This feature combined with the correct paper, results in crisp and clear printed projects.
Also, through Print Shop Pro Publisher Deluxe you can share your projects with friends via email and instant messaging.
Accessing help and support is easy with Print Shop Pro Publisher Deluxe. The included tutorials are useful, though you can't view and use the tutorials at the same time. The help center makes it easy to access help content, tutorials and online resources.
Overall, Print Shop Pro Publisher Deluxe is a capable desktop publishing program. It has excellent text and image tools along with terrific printing and sharing tools. If you're looking for a program that offers a wide variety of quality templates and images, then Print Shop Pro Publisher Deluxe might be for you.
