Default Hello

Hello. My name is Tim. I stumbled across DTP Forum while searching for some information on what I learned is actually desktop publishing.

I came up with an idea to publish a small specialty interest tabloid in my area. I thought of this only because I've read simliar publications, but they were regional at best and were missing too much local info. There was nothing in print that was specific to my city. So I wanted to focus on what was happening locally. Seeing as this would be a free publication with all revenue being generated from advertising, I also thought advertisers would appreciate that all readers would not only be part of their demographic, but in their geographic location as well. So everyone is a potential customer for them.

I enjoy writing a lot and consider myself very knowledgeable on the focus of this publication, but I'm completely new to creating such a publication and will likely be taking on this feat myself, with some contributions from other writers.

Just wanted to let everyone know that I'm new and I'll be asking some questions, probably pertaining mostly to software and print.

I appreciate any and all help.

Hi Franca,
A little off-topic, but . . . I like your kitty-cat photo, but wasn't it you, way back in Compuserve days, who used an ascii image of sort of a Kilroy kitty? Do you still have it? It was a nice demonstration of making a picture with the fewest possible elements.
