Editorial review

This program is a Microsoft desktop publisher application that allows you to create online publications of all sorts. It comes with a standard Microsoft Office package, but you can download it separately as well whenever you are in need of creating custom cards, magazines, brochures, posters, book covers and other publications.


The program supplies you with tons of templates and clipart to create your own publications. All you need to do is upload a desired image from your PC or from the Internet and select a desired template. You can use a basic in-built editor to make certain changes to your pics, add text, and share the publication online. The program smoothens up the images automatically and helps you avoid any blank spaces. Besides, you can opt for extra templates online in case you are not satisfied with a standard list. Finally, Microsoft Publisher supports all the most popular formats, such as TXT, DOC, DOX, PDF, PUB, WPS, HTML, RTF, WPD, GIF, JPG, BMP, etc.


The interface is very simple and user friendly. Besides, it's nicely designed and looks really appealing. The program is fairly similar to Microsoft Word and possesses all the same tools. Thus, if you are familiar with Word, you wouldn't have any problems with using Publisher.

2013 Version

This version has several useful updates:
  • Uploading pictures directly from the web;
  • New feature allows you to use background images;
  • Better social networking integration;
  • Better effects and an expanded list of templates;
  • New effects for text;
  • Ability to save images for photo printing.

Overall impressions

Microsoft Publisher is a decent tool for making custom publications. It's powerful enough to create good looking and attractive compositions, and its easy interface will make it easy to use even if you have never dealt with this type of software before.
