Dear Miriam,

I am writing to inform you about DTP publication. I want to tell you about every step that i have learnt. it’s thrilling indeed, ’cause you save your time by following these simple steps.

Firstly, you should decide the basic form of the document. To create the DTP document, you begin by selecting a template or by specifying the settings of a new document. The next stop is to type the text directly or to import it from a program like Word or WordPerfect.

When the text has been edited, you should import the pictures and use precise tools to position, scale, crop and rotate all the items. Once the file is composed and saved, you have to prepare it for printing, which involves verifying the colour specification, creating a Postscript or PDF file, exporting the file in HTML format for the Web, checking proofs, etc.

The last step for you is to take the files to a service bureau, which will print the publication.

I hope you enjoy my information. I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Maria Zhukova, student from Antibes
