A Sweet Deal on a Publishing Suite

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, January 19, 2000

A software deal that's almost a steal. I'm Fred Fishkin with Bootcamp, a report on computers and technology. It's the kind of software every household can use and Microsoft has put together a bundle that's hard to beat with Home Publishing Suite 2000. A 20 dollar rebate brings the price to just about 15 dollars and what you get is pretty amazing. Product manager Rob McIntosh....

"Home Publishing Suite 2000 is really the best of web, the best of print publishing and the best of photo editing tools combined into one complete, sort of integrated software package. We're working with Hallmark Connections again, so we've got about a hundred thousand different templates, ideas, occasions, email greetings....we've got different email cards, we've got photo editing, which is Picture It, included in the software."

Picture It is one of my favorite consumer programs for editing photos. It's easy to use and the results look great....

Basically what it allows you to do is design personalized greeting, put a photograph of your family in the greeting, you're able to remove scratches from the photograph, remove red-eye, in place photo editing....do all that in the greeting you're putting together and then email it off to your friends and family."

Or put your creations on the web. There is plenty of competition out there, but for the money, with Home Publishing Suite 2000, you can't go wrong.
