Which Adobe product is best for me?

May 15, 2012 1:33 PM

My wife and I are in the travel business.  I like to make 8½ x 11 flyers for our cruise promotions.  I start with a blank page and add images and text to make a composite, and then save it off in pdf.  I've been using an old XP version of Microsoft Picture It! running in XP Mode on Windows 7.  I need to upgrade to something more modern that will handle eps files, etc. I'm not a graphic designer, so the Adobe product line is confusing for me.  So which product would be best for me, the cheaper the better?  Thanks

    Illustrator has a lot of flexibility.  I would start with that.

    That is not an Adobe product. 

     

    Try Microsoft Publisher and/or Microsoft Expression Design.

    For the time spent learning how to use Illustrator and the cost of it you could probably hire a professional.

     

    If you want to do it yourself for a small company, avoid Adobe all together unless you want to use their 30 day trails - google it for info.

     

    Gimp is good, free, simple. http://www.gimp.org/downloads/

     

    And as above, Publisher and Expression design can be OK - generally it's what you do with the software not the software itself.
