Does anyone know of any software for A4 Album Pages?  

Similarly I thought this may be an interesting thread for the posting of any other Philatelic Related Software which may be of interest.    Especially if it's something you have tried out and can give a rating on it.

Album Page Design

Hi 'Classic NZ'

Welcome to the message board.

A great idea for a thread. It will be intreresting to see what others have to suggest.

I'll start the ball rolling by saying I have always found Microsoft Word can produce perfectly adequate pages. It is easy to save preferred formats and then modify for future use.

There are more flexible and adaptable page design packages available but I understand that some of these take a lot of practice before you can feel comfortable in using them (although you could probably say tha about a lot of software packages). Amongst packages that are widely used are:-

'Adobe' Pagemaker
Microsoft Publisher

These packages need to be purchased but there are 'free ware' options available on the web if you want to try them out:-

Pagemaker equivalent is Scribus  www.scribus.net
Publisher equivalent is Open Office Draw www.openoffice.org/product/draw.html

I have no practical knowledge of any of these so would be interested to hear from anyone with hands-on experience, good or bad.

PS: when you have a minute could you go to the "Introductions" section of the site and tell us a little about yourself.
