As a follow-up to that last post, we recently put Bryan to work in developing Jewelboxing templates for Apple’s iWork Pages design program, and we’re happy to announce that they’re all finished up and available for download and use after making your Jewelboxing purchase. Although, like with the programs mentioned below in Design Software Alternatives, Pages doesn’t wield a ton of design muscle, we’d received a number of requests for the templates to be made available for it and we think you’ll find it’ll work well for whatever you have planned. Here are some brief notes Bryan sent along about the new templates:
- If you follow the included instructions, a user puts the files in the right folder and they’ll show up automatically in the “templates” menu when you start to create a new file, which is kinda neat.
- iWork is Mac-only and contains Pages, Keynote, and Numbers (analogous to Publisher, PowerPoint, and Excel). It costs $79, but there’s a 30-day free trial
- If you like working in iPhoto and iMovie, it’s a particularly good choice because the interface is similar. If you use those programs, Pages will feel familiar.
