I need some kind of free software to make like a magazine or newspaper. Thanks
Why do you think people pay a lot of money for Indesign or QuarkXpress? Even software like Pages costs something...
However, after my little rant/lecture comes an answer.
Try Ragtime Solo.
Another option is using Fink to install Scribus http://www.scribus.org.uk/
How much design are you planning to put into it?
If it's a short project, there's the free trial version of InDesign available from Adobe's website it'll last you for 30 days.
i think the trial version wont let you output to print, not sure, any one out there have experience with the trial version?
I did try an earlier demo version without any restrictions and the new trial version is to the best of my knowledge a fully-featured demo the only restriction being the 30 day deadline. Of course, I might be wrong!
But you're not...
I know... but a little bit of humility never goes amiss!
If this is going to be a weekly, monthly, repeating time of thing, I highly suggest Pages. Its layout capabilities seem very nice (coming from a graphic designer with Quark/ID background). The price is very nice for what you get.
If not, go with the ID trial.
Try Ragtime Solo. However, the free version is not licensed for commercial use.
edit: oops -- didn't see Blue Velvet beat me to it. I've used Ragtime for a few little things. It can be annoying at times, but it will get probably the job done.
i dno't think there is a SOLO any more?
still is there anything else?
You might also get NeoOffice/Open Office to suffice. While they're free and full-featured, I find them difficult to use for complex tasks. But you can't beat the price!
