Desktop Publishing

Desktop publishing was discovered by Paul Brainerd in 1985 when he lighted the software Aldus PageMaker for the Macintosh computer. Desktop publishing is the use of a computer to making high-quality documents containing text and graphics formatted for a single-page publication. For example, desktop publishing is used to create printed material such as book covers, brochure, and fliers.

Desktop publishing is a period coined after the development of an exclusive type of software. It's about using that software to combine and rearrange text and images and make digital files.

Previous to the invention of desktop publishing software the tasks involved in desktop publishing were complete manually, by a Diversity of people and involved typesetting, graphic design and prepress tasks which sometimes leads to confusion about what desktop publishing is and how it is done.
