    I've designed brochures for a company before. The industry standard would be Photoshop. Don't forget to use the right DPI and bleeding area before starting ;)

    the industry standard would be indesign or quark express. photoshop should not be used for print work if possible. it can be done like you said but isn't recommended. use photoshop or illustrator to design the visual elements of the brocure and then use quark express or indesign to do the actual layour for print.

    Quark has been the daddy for many many years but it's pretty expensive (or at least it used to be???) - If you like Adobe products, then go with Indesign - you can drop photoshop files into the layout so that if you need to make any tweaks to the graphics, you can just open the layered photoshop file up and save - Indesign is really easy to pick up as well.

    Only use Illustrator for creating vector graphics or doing layouts that are just one page.

    Don't create brochures entirely in photoshop - but use photoshop for all the bitmap graphic work definitely.

    InDesign is great. I tried Quark many years ago and it fried my brain. InDesign is a breeze if you've used Photoshop/Illustrator before.

    Also wanted to find fault with this. But the read your comment... Photoshop can be freely used for print work. If your brochure (or any format) consist mostly of pictures and doesn't have large bodies of small text - it's absolutely fine. Also, one page folds can be made in any vector software (illustrator, freehand, etc.) - not necessary indesign or quark.

    QuarkXpress and InDesign are always top choices. However, you can always just use PSHOP as well :)

    Microsoft Publisher is also a good option for designing brochures.

    Hi,I have used Free 3DPageFlip PDF to Flash Converter to make a digital brochure. It is the best free program I have used before, it helps me convert pdf files to digital brochure with page flipping effect. Later I use 3D PageFlip Standard to create a more professional and vivid flipping book.

    Hi, I find the best brochure software is the CS range, ie use Indesign for the layout doc, text rule work and folios, then import both Photoshop for the Images and Illustrator for Logos etc,
