Adobe’s CS5 Design Standard suite is just about all of the software you will ever need to put together, edit, design, create and publish your books. At $1,300 it ain’t cheap but the investment is well worth it if you’re serious about producing and publishing in print or as an eBook. The suite contains three software tools which you will use over and over again. You will use inDesign to layout your book and export it to the ePub or Kindle’s mobi format. You will use Photoshop and Illustrator to create your covers. These tools definitely take extensive time and effort to master, but, if you want to take a do it yourself approach to publishing, this is the way to go. So go ahead and take the plunge if you dare. Let me know if you have any questions about the use of this software and I’ll be glad to help you in any way I can. If you’d rather leave this stuff to an expert, I can certainly help you out there as well.
