    Specs:
    MacBook | 1.83ghz | 2gb ram
    Photoshop, InDesign or QuarkXPress. I wouldn't suggest illustrator for a flyer.

    Illustrator is probably the best thing if you are using a lot of text, if you are using mostly photographs then photoshop is the way to go. I would even go as far as to say Indesign, but its pretty tough to learn. If I was making a flyer I would use illustrator.

    Best Software For Creating Sales Flyers
    I need to create weekly sales flyers for my company. Iíve been using Word & Publisher, both limited and kind of lame for this purpose.

    Being new to Mac I was wondering what the best Mac program would be to create these documents. Word is fine but the final product looks kinda primitive. I want a slick, professional looking flyer that I can create fairly easily.

    The flyer typically has one or two images, my company logo and text with product specs and pricing.

    Also my office is strictly PC so I guess Iíll have to export the doc into a pdf before bringing it into the office for printing.

    Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

    Hello there everyone

    Alright, so I am new to the mac world so please be gentle with me, hahaha

    I am currently looking to make some flyers for my business and I want to do them in PDF format so that everyone can view (mac & PC) them and not be easily edited.

    flyers will be a few pages long with images and such things.

    So can anyone recommend some good programs out there??? I am also looking for some free (open source) programs to make things a little easier on the wallet But if not possible let me know.

    I'll expand on what dakineyj said. You can print virtually anything from a Mac to a PDF file. It's built into the OS. Create whatever you want with whatever tools work best for you, print to PDF, and distribute to everyone. ^_^

    Yep. In any app that allows you to print, just choose "PDF" down at the lower left corner, and choose "Save to PDF...". Just one more little nicety about OS X.

    For that you would need Acrobat Professional, I think. Acrobat Professional lets you add files and assemble various .pdf files in a single one file.

    First question: It will create the PDF with as many pages as your original document. So, if your document is 4 pages in Pages, then it will create a 4 page PDF with the same formatting as your source document.

    Second question: The way I do it is to keep the original source document in its native format, and then simply "print" to PDF again with the same filename whenever I update it. This will overwrite the previous PDF, effectively "adding" your new pages to the PDF. Just always make sure to save your doc in whatever format you are working in BEFORE you print to PDF initially.

    Hope this helps!
