About the course
Desktop publishing is the use of a personal computer to perform publishing tasks that would otherwise require much more complicated equipment and human effort. Desktop publishing allows an individual to combine text, numerical data, photographs, charts, and other visual elements in a document that can be printed on a laser printer or typesetting machine.
Desktop publishers work as project administrators, production specialists, graphic artists, printers/typesetters, editors, and in public relations. They work with books, magazines, catalogs, directories, and various other types of printed documents.
