Serif PagePlus X6 is a powerful desktop publishing tool which can help you to create all kinds of documents, graphics and publications.

The program provides a lengthy list of professional design templates to help you get started. So you're able to create themed business stationery, for instance - brochures, business cards, flyers, compliments slips and more - in just a few clicks. There are also attractive logos, newsletter and poster designs, even web sites; all you have to do is choose the design you like, then customise it to suit your needs.

If you need to add extra graphics to your document, then the program can import most formats (including digital camera RAW images). Editing tools do everything from helping you cleanly cut a person away from the background, to removing red-eye, fixing brightness and contrast and generally making sure the image is up to your standards. Or you can create additional graphics yourself, using the powerful vector graphics drawing tools, the professional gradient fills, filter effects, 3D lighting and surface effects, and more.

Text handling is just as impressive, with your content flowing easily through the program's text frames, while the various wrap options ensure it looks just as you'd like. Again, you're able to apply multiple effects (transparencies, gradient fills, 3D options and more), and PagePlus delivers all the composition features you'd expect from any professional word processor: spell check, word counts, thesaurus, proof reader, automated tables of contents, indexes and so on.

And when you've finished, excellent publishing features allow you to create industry-standard PDFs (including PDF slideshows, complete with page transitions, sound and video clips) and web pages, or you can print documents professionally, as the ICC Colour Profiling support ensuring the printed pages will look just as good as they do on screen.

New features in X6: Asset Management tab, Clean Design Mode, eBook export support, Format painter, improved ToC/index, support for multiple contact details, extended Pantone colour support.

Please note that there is no current trial for PagePlus X6.


Verdict

A beautifully balanced desktop publishing package that perfectly blends professional features with raw power, user-friendliness and an unbelievable price.
