Which PC design package is best?

  SG21 14:58 28 Feb 2005

Help!... I am trying to become a freelance graphic designer (producing flyers, brochures etc) but I hate using Macs because of all the file transfer problems between PC's & Macs. I've used various PC based design packages in the past but never found one that could rival Quark.

Are there any new (last 2-3 years ish) PC packages that can do the job? I don't need to be able to design websites, just material that is to be printed.

Adobe Illustrator 10 & Macromedia have both been mentioned to me but the reviews I've read on them seem to indicate they are both mostly for web design. Is this right?

Thanks for your help!!!

Not at all. I assume by Macromedia you mean Freehand. Both of these are true vector drawing programs which are also capable of web design. It depends what you want to do. As you have mentioned Quark you probably want publishing software. Adobe's offering is click here

But it is possible to purchase all Adobe's creative products in one box at a favourable price. click here

Adobe Illustrator is for vector-based graphics drawing Macmedia Dreamwawer is for web site design

you can try to use "Microsoft Publisher" to produce the final flyer and to use "Corel Draw" to draw graphics
