iStudio Publisher at MW09
c:four has announced a Macworld 2009 launch of iStudio Publisher, a page layout application aimed at home and small business users. The software is intended for users who may be starting with limited design skills, and as a result all tools and features are available on-screen. Options include drawing shapes, running text around shapes or patterns, and placing photos in the middle of text with dynamic text wrapping; also present is a shape library for commonly-used items.
The software will be on demo at booth 3526 at Macworld starting January 5th. It is expected to require Mac OS X 10.4 or later, along with 512MB of RAM. The final retail price will be $100, though an introductory price of $50 should run through to March 5th.
