Adobe Pagemaker 7.0 download with key Free
Adobe Pagemaker 7.0 is the last version of the venerable desktop publishing application. Although it is still sold and supported by Adobe, its functions are now covered by InDesign CS4.
It's made for designing things for print, from flyers and posters to reports, and will export creations as PDF files too. Like much of Adobe's output it is a feature rich program, but is quite inaccessible for the beginner. It does feature templates to work from, and that is recommended as a way to learn what you can do with it.
Adobe Pagemaker 7.0 was originally released in 2002, and it is showing it's age. It was designed for small businesses and professionals, and while it's adequate as a desktop publisher, the next generation of programs are more suited to today's world.
If you were happy using desktop publishing programs, you'll be pleased that Pagemaker is still available. However, for most people desktop publishing has become obsolete, as word processing applications can now create pages for printing ideal for the amateur user, and professional design suites are much better suited for business.

Adobe PageMaker (formerly Aldus PageMaker) is a discontinued desktop publishing computer program introduced in 1985 by Aldus on the Apple Macintosh. The combination of PageMaker using the Mac's graphical user interface for document creation and the Apple LaserWriter for output represented the starting point of what became the desktop publishing revolution in the late 1980s. Ported to PCs running Windows 1.0 in 1987, PageMaker helped to popularize the Macintosh platform and the Windows environment.
A key component that led to PageMaker's success was its native support for Adobe Systems' PostScript page description language. After Adobe purchased the majority of Aldus' assets (including FreeHand, PressWise, PageMaker etc.) in 1994 and subsequently phased out the Aldus name, version 6 was released. The program remained a major force in the high-end DTP market through the early 1990s, but new features were slow in coming. By the mid-1990s, it faced increasing competition from QuarkXPress on the Mac, and to a lesser degree, Ventura on the PC, and by the end of the decade it was no longer a major force. Quark proposed buying the product and cancelling it, but instead, in 1999 Adobe released their "Quark Killer", Adobe InDesign. The last major release of PageMaker came in 2001, and customers were offered InDesign licenses at a lower cost.
