The Calamus Student License fits for almost all purposes.
There are some more modules at hot prices.
All other additional modules are very inexpensive, too.
Beside the Windows TTF and PostScript Type 1 fonts, there are more than thousand professional Calamus fonts at a very low price (only 15 EUR for each font face).
You will merely need other software. You can do many illustrations in Calamus already.
After you imported images in Calamus, you can easily edit them (even without Photoshop), e.g. with control curves and histogram functions.
Single document components can be saved with the basic tools from Calamus: single pages, texts, macros, styles. This is very important when working in a school magazine team – other application don't offer this.
PostScript printers are not required for separation and rasterization. Simple print forms can be created with laser printers (600/1200 dpi) for saving pre-press costs. Even for cheap laser printers you can (re)define the raster dots.
Works under Windows and Mac OS with the same documents and fonts.
Eddie offers automatic and controlled text corrections. The S&R engine in Eddie is a powerful tool. At a glance all hyphens and quotation marks are corrected (and even more ...)
The smart ASCII Import imports each damned file and offers character exchange in order to get the right special characters.
Newbees will not forget to send the required images and fonts to the print shop, because these parts are embedded in the document (or PDF) already. No lost paths or stuff.
