Creating a document using Affinity Publisher - Simon Parnell

Affinity Publisher is incredibly inexpensive, professional quality desktop publishing software from the developers of the award-winning Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer apps. Whether you're creating a book, magazine, marketing materials, social media template, website mock-up or something else, this incredibly smooth, intuitive app has everything you need to make beautiful layouts …

 During our April meeting, Simon Parnell will demonstrate the software, and illustrate just how easy it is to create an eye-catching document. Along the way he will illustrate the ease with which you can jump from Affinity Publisher to other apps in the family, so if you want to make changes to an image in a document, for example, Affinity Photo is just a mouse-click away.

 Affinity Publisher is currently at 50% discount on both the Serif store and Apple’s app store so there’s never been a better time to add this spectacular program to your app collection.

If you'd like to have a look at our archives of past meetings, they're just a click away ....

How to get to a Suffolk Mac User Group meeting

We meet every other month on Wednesday evenings - from 7.30pm to 10pm - in the comfortable surroundings of Rushmere Village Hall, very close to Ipswich. 

 Access to the hall’s car park is from Humber Doucy Lane in Ipswich. Head towards Rushmere from the Rushmere Road roundabout on Colchester Road. A quarter mile or so up the road, at the mini roundabout, turn left in to Humber Doucy Lane. The first building you will see on the right is the Rushmere Community Centre (it has a bus stop right outside it) which is immediately followed by the drive leading to the Village Hall.

 If you’re using sat nav, the hall’s post code is IP4 3PD, which will get you to within 200 yards of the building.

Come and see for yourself - you’re assured of a very warm welcome.
