Looking for Advice on Adobe Indesign Alternatives...
+Zach Glazar laid out Swords & Wizardry Light.
+James Spahn laid out Swords & Wizardry Continual Light.
I'm looking to take over layout duties with the Torchlight Zine.
I've heard nothing but good about Indesign - except for its pricing. I think I'd be paying for more horsepower than I need and certainly for more than I'll make my money back on. While you don't publish RPG material to become rich, you don't want to become poor ;)
Scribus gets some good talk and it is Mac friendly although I tend to find open source software to lack a certain depth of documentation. The price is certainly right.
LucidPress looks very interesting. Online app accessible from all devices, you OS is irrelevant. Starts at $5.95 a month with a yearly sub.
I'm sure there are many others.
I'm looking for inexpensive publishing software with a small learning curve, preferably for OSX (although I can boot into Windows, I'd rather not). It will mostly be used for laying out zines of about 16 or so digest sized pages and occasional adventures about the same size.
If you have advice, I am all ears. I'm also all noob ;)
