Back in April I wrote a short post about adding watermarks to photos with publisher. This three and half minute video shows you how to create and save a copyright watermark to use to copyright images.

When a text box, or AutoShape for that matter, in your publication contains more text than it can display, Publisher stores the extra text in overflow. You can manually move your text out of overflow and back into your publication by autoflowing the text into another linked text box. This way you can start a story on the front page of a multipage newsletter or other publication and have the story continue on another page.
I'm about to drive my son to Fresno, California, to start college. Of course I've already bought him a copy of Office 2010 Home & Student. But Home & Student doesn't have Publisher. Ah, fortunately for him and for college students and their parents, there are up grades available from Home & Student to Professional Academic that offers Publisher, plus Outlook and Access for free!
Here are the eligibility requirements. In the US, Canada, and Iceland, you have to buy Home & Student between July 1 and September 25th and redeem the upgrade by October 21st 2011 (other countries have other eligibility dates). You also have to validate your student status online. You then get a product key for downloading Publisher, Outlook, and Access 2010.

The end of the school year is fast approaching. In addition to looking forward to school getting out for the summer, some of you might be thinking about running for student council or class officer. From campaign banners and posters, to flyers and newsletters, to campaign bumper stickers and buttons, Publisher can help you with your campaign.
Mother's Day is this Sunday, and Publisher has templates to help you create your own personalized card for your mom.
As always, start with one of our Mother's Day card templates, or any card template that comes closest to what you want. Then customize the card by replacing the image with something special to your mom, maybe a picture of the two of you, or perhaps an image of something that really speaks to about your relationship with your mom, or something you've created yourself. Then change other elements, such as the colors or fonts, and print the card in time to give it to her on Sunday.
You can find Mother's Day images on Office.com as well as several other places on the Web.
One of the main uses of Publisher is to take publications to commercial printing companies. Publisher makes this super easy with the Pack and Go Wizard. The Pack and Go Wizard creates a compressed file that contains everything that your commercial printer needs.
Over at the Microsoft Publisher Facebook page, they've asked readers to comment on which Publisher template is the best. I urge you to go over and comment on your favorite Publisher templates, why you like them, and how you use them, as well as maybe what templates you want that you can't find.
Or of course, you could sign in and leave those comments here; that would work, too.
My son is graduating from high school in a week, and on Monday he came home with his high school yearbook. It was amazing to see all the "little kids" we once knew grown up to young adults, and it reminded me that this would be the perfect time write a blog post about using Publisher and MagCloud to create, sell, print, and deliver yearbooks of all kinds.
*A quick reminder about MagCloud: Hewlett Packard's cloud publishing site, called MagCloud, is an excellent resource for any on-demand publishing scenario. Microsoft and HP have partnered to make using Publisher with MagCloud an easy solution for publishing catalogs, magazines, newsletters, and yes, yearbooks. You can read more about the Microsoft/MagCloud partnership and receive a 25% discount coupon code in my earlier post.
