    Adobe InDesign review by Lew G.
    "Best design layout program available: InDesign is an affect layout design program with endless possibilities. As part of the Adobe family it's full of detail and customization, and when it comes to laying out multiple page documents, I haven't used anything that even comes close. Knowing, or previously using an Adobe program helps, but certainly not impossible to pick up from scratch. Partnered with Adobe Photoshop as well, it's simple to edit certain images used for documents, and have them automatically re-link to the InDesign Document."

    Venngage review by Christopher  E.
    "Very good infographic and poster program,: The freedom of placement that you get with Venngage- you can shift anything everywhere, even without having to click "wrap text" all the time as one must do in Microsoft Word. Pictures can be well placed, allowing posters to be designed so much more efficiently and to a greater quality. In addition, due to the colour wheel, there are so many more colours to choose from, so specific colour patterns and designs can be made. Something that I enjoy in Venngage is the availability of different types of graphs, such as the bubble graph, which again, unlike Word, adds something unique to a poster. "

    iBooks Author review by David W.
    "Powerful and flexible but infrequently updated: iBooks Author is incredibly usable and makes creating static or interactive ebooks very easy thanks to the what you see is what you get creation and previewing. Adding interactive content (either created specifically for the project or imported from elsewhere) and photos, videos, and galleries takes seconds and produces elegant results. The ability to import Keynote (and by association, Powerpoint) slide decks as a gallery makes producing second level content simple. Easy to publish publicly through Apple Books store, or internally distribute as an iBooks file (or ePub for maximum compatibility)."

    "The only game in town: Framemaker is a comprehensive option for technical documentation. The program handles large documents very well and allows you to create online help files from the same source as your print/PDF manuals. The ability to auto-generate tables of content and indices is great. Framemaker also allows you to update the style of your documents easily through the authoring of new templates. You can export the document to many outputs and create crosslinks, internal references, etc. You can create a comprehensive set of variables that allow you to update standardized terms really easily, such as copyright dates and authors."

    "This is a software that complements the work task of your company.: I love Oracle BI Publisher a lot because it makes easier the work in the company, this software generates a lot of reports and I use it more than anything for the function of generating, creating, managing, sending and spreading any type of projects and documents, projects and documents can develop in the most creative way. Something that I also like a lot about Oracle BI Publisher is that with this software I can develop many report templates so that when we have some information to the staff, clients or any other interested we already have a specific design which looks very formal and modern. It should be noted that the interface of Oracle BI publisher looks good and is very functional, this is a very good software, and I like it."

    Scribus review by Julia A.
    "Herramienta sencilla, eficaz y eficiente, recomendada: A destacar, el ser una plataforma libre de pago, con todas las ventajas que esto conlleva. Siguiéndole, la diversidad de proyectos que te permite realizar (siendo una opción el guardar el documento en el formato pdf, cuya utilidad es amplia). Basándome en la experiencia propia, gracias a Scrib, mi empresa no solo ha podido realizar formularios para los distintos clientes, sino que además ha podido hacer folletos para promocionar sus productos (predicando sus usos y el impacto de estos en el medioambiente...) con un halo de profesionalidad que nada tiene que envidiar a una plataforma de pago. Para todos aquellos que se encarguen del marketing de una empresa, saben lo importante que es saber vender el producto así como captar y alentar a los clientes a invertir en los mismos, y esta plataforma es sobresaliente para ello, al contar con todo el espectro visible (CMYK), esto le brinda ya sea a la revista, folleto, al documento en general, una frescura y una originalidad que no solo hace destacar los productos sino que de forma indirecta, llama la atención de los clientes, el impacto visual es importante. Otro punto a favor sería la cantidad de idiomas en los que se encuentra, concretamente 24, que sumándose a que es una plataforma gratuita, es asequible para personas de muchos rincones del mundo. A agradecer de esta plataforma la cantidad de herramientas que puedes utilizar para editar el documento, contando desde el más básico cambio de tamaño de letras e imágenes hasta algo tan profesional como las separaciones de color. Así como la presencia de fuentes inexistentes en procesadores de textos como pueden ser las capas, páginas maestras y siluetado del texto. En Scribus también puedes utilizar plantillas propias, ideal para principiantes que quieren adentrarse en la plataforma pero no saben como. "

    Smore review by User in Photography
    "Attractive and Effective Marketing: I’ve used Smore for my photography business for three years now, and really do like it quite a bit. For free, I can create an attractive newsletter (they used to call it an online flyer) that I can then post on social media, send via email to my client list (a free plan offers 200 email credits per month), link in my signature, and share with anyone at any time. My most popular package is an ongoing 45 minute (or so) Mini Session that I continually ‘decorate’ then attach to seasons, seasonal events (wedding/graduation/prom) and holidays. I have different Smore promos for all of them, and they look great. They look great, they get my message across, and they work. I am contacted through my Smore promos often. Using Smore, I’ve also created what I like to call my ‘main’ promo, which, unless I have another seasonal newsletter that I’m passing around, is always in my email signature. Not only is it organized to showcase some of my work, but it outlines all of my prices and services. It’s a great way to organize and share what I have going on in the Now. In the moment. Simple and effective. "

    "easy to maneuver and navigate through : I love how easy it is to add media into my projects. There was no guessing on how and it even let me change it around to be able to see it in different aspects. I could drag and drop which is the easiest for me when trying to find the right spot for my work. I was able to move around my titles easily as well because when making a project i change my mind constantly throughout the process. The story blocks made it easy to start my page and I could build out from there."
