CT&D #53. Page Layout Software

What is the primary purpose of page layout software?

Page layout software holds importance in allowing a graphic designer or editor to utilize text boxes and visual graphics together over the course of several pages to create a publication (like brochures, magazines, and periodicals).

Besides allowing designers to freely craft their work through elements derived from Photoshop and InDesign (a prominent software used for its page layout user interface), these programs provide the basic functions of typographical and visual control by allowing the manipulation of color, size and shape to accommodate for balancing a page spread; plus page layout software builds digital files like PDFs that are great for commercial printing.
