QuarkXPress is primarily desktop publishing software, but it also works very well for slide production. It doesn't offer templates or charting as PowerPoint does or strong drawing tools as with CorelDraw or Illustrator, but it does a great job bringing together photos and illustrations created in other programs.
Quark output begins at $10/slide. However, since large bitmaps and complex artwork can result in larger PostScript files and longer imaging times, there may be an additional charge per slide. See tips below for ways to optimize files for output.
