Part VIII: Power Photoshop > Page Layout Programs

Page Layout Programs

Many imaging pros use Photoshop strictly as part of the “digital darkroom,” doing little more than optimizing and editing images that will be distributed electronically or, at best, printed on an inkjet printer. However, for those doing print publishing, Photoshop is just the beginning of the journey. In that case, you need to venture into the world of the page layout program.

The page layout program is where all your text and graphics are combined to create the actual page(s) of the document. (In the dim and distant past, these programs were also called “desktop publishing” programs, but “electronic publishing” tends to be the more favored term these days.) The page layout program is (usually) the final step before the document goes to a service bureau or printer.
