Spice up your documents with 50 brand new templates!

Tired of your old Pages templates? Breathe some smooth summer breeze into your documents with our 50 new template designs, which are ready and waiting for you. Our exclusive new layouts will make your recipients raise their eye-brows and ask “How the hell did they do that?!” The laconic and clean-cut Pages Templates 5.2 extends the fourth version’s tradition by offering a comprehensive collection of documents for business and personal use that focus heavily on design quality. Like its predecessor, Pages Templates 5.2 fuses an up-to-date print style with bold lettering, contrasting colors, and tasteful minimalism. But it’s just a bit lighter and fresher…and half of its contents is completely, absolutely new.

Pages Templates 5.2 includes 100 complete templates: 50 from the previous version and 50 brand-new additions. The kit offers a variety of documents, from brochures and photo albums to posters and invitations. Most of the templates include up to 10 different sections, so the package provides an extensive array of 350 layouts to meet your most exclusive needs. Each layout, from the plain refinement of text-only pages to the bold mix of pictures and slogans among the advertisement and photo album templates, features prime design quality which is set apart by attention to detail, high usability, and abundant creativity.

A Whole New View

Pages Templates 5.2 features important enhancements to Pages Templates 4.0, resulting in a brand-new set of templates that guarantee you even greater convenience. The range of fresh designs becomes immediately evident, but we do not stop there. Most of the 100 templates are available in both paper size A4, the standard prevalent in most countries in the world, and US Letter, the most common paper format in the US and Canada. Besides, users of the previous version will notice improved functionality and a significantly boosted level of intuitiveness, which will make every document appreciably easier to adjust according to individualized needs.

The new Pages Templates 5.2 pack includes an entire line of new innovative templates: Advertisement, CD/DVD, Newspaper, Photo Album, Photographer’s Portfolio, Press Release, and Recipe. Most of these templates provide more layout options, which makes nearly 350 different layouts in total. Such comprehensive flexibility offers countless possibilities to quickly and effortlessly tailor pages to your needs and make a memorable impression on clients and colleagues alike.

What’s in the Package

Pages Templates 5.2 includes 100 different templates, each containing up to 10 sections that are created according to the type of document. Use single-page templates such as Invoice, Memo, and Poster for basic documents, or choose one of the several multi-layout templates for brochures, newsletters, and other publications. The latter vary from a 4-layout Meeting Minutes design to a 10-layout Photo Album. Many of the layouts include placeholders for your photos or pictures – simply drag and drop the selected image.

All of the templates are available in the popular A4 (210 x 297 mm) and U.S. Letter (8½ x 11 in.) sizes, except for non-standard size documents such as Envelope (DL Envelope format – 110 x 220 mm / 4¼ x 8¾ in.) and Newspaper (Tabloid format – 279 × 432 mm / 11 × 17 in.). You can conveniently view the dimensions of a selected template by clicking File > Page Setup and checking Paper Size.

Created for Editing

Although the stock design of Pages Templates 5.2 is highly professional, we do not expect you to settle for the included basics. Every object in the templates can be effortlessly recolored, reshaped, moved, or removed. Type or paste your own text, add and remove text boxes, and change the font if you wish. Drag your photos or pictures onto documents to replace the stock images. You can even copy and paste a whole layout from one document to another by using the thumbnail view, thus inserting an advertisement into your newsletter or adding photo-oriented layouts to your project proposals. Unleash your creativity with the amazing application that is Pages.

Simply choose a theme you like and insert your information. It’s easy to create stunning, professional looking documents with Pages Templates 5.2.

There is no Free download (Trial Version) for today’s ZOT.

System Requirements – Pages Templates 5.2 requires any Macintosh computer running Mac OS X with iWork ’08 or later installed.

    ZeusDraw 1.3.4
    Oustanding Vector Drawing Program!
    Meet the developer below…

    Normally: $90.00

    ZOT Price: $54.00

    Click to MacZOT Try Now  


    ZeusDraw is a vector drawing program with a fluid, graceful interface, great brushes and a host of other features outlined in detail below.

    ZeusDraw’s important controls are easily accessible without hunting. There are two dockable tool palettes, one for viewing and one for creation/editing. An additional palette holds the controls for the current tool. The primary controls are immediately available, and less frequently used ones are easily accessible in fold-up sections of the controls palette. ZeusDraw has a large set of keyboard shortcuts, but it can also work conveniently using only a pressure sensitive pen and tablet.

  • System Requirements – ZeusDraw 1.3.4 requires a minimum of OS X 10.4 and is localized for English, French, Spanish and German.
  • Full Layer System – ZeusDraw has a complete layer system. You can add layers, delete them, rearrange them, make them visible or invisible and lock or unlock them. You can also assign an opacity and a blend mode to a layer.
  • Convert PDF and PostScript to editable objects – ZeusDraw can convert most imported PDF, PS and EPS files into ZeusDraw objects. These objects can then be edited and modified like objects that are directly created in ZeusDraw.
  • CMYK Color – You can choose between the CMYK color model or the RGB color model for your documents.
  • Color Management – You can set the profile (color space) for new documents and control how imported images are matched to the document color space. You can also match an entire document to a new color space (convert RGB to CMYK for example) or assign a different profile to a document.
  • Choose Color Space for Exported Bitmaps – You can choose the color model when exporting bitmaps. (RGB, CMYK or Grayscale for tiff or jpeg, RGB or grayscale for png.) The exported bitmap’s color model does not have to be the same as the document color model.
  • Object Opacities – You can assign an opacity (degree of transparency) to individual objects and to groups.
  • Watch movie

    Download a 30 day trial copy.

    New Features:

    New — CMYK Color
    You can now choose between the CMYK color model or the RGB color model for your documents.
    New — Color Management
    You can set the profile (color space) for new documents and control how imported images are matched to the document color space.
    New — Full Layer System
    ZeusDraw now has a complete layer system. You can add layers, delete them, rearrange them, make them visible or invisible and lock or unlock them. You can also assign an opacity and a blend mode to a layer.
    New — Object Opacities
    You can assign an opacity (degree of transparency) to individual objects and to groups.


    Based on the Modern Mac Graphics System

    Quartz and Cocoa let ZeusDraw show you what you are doing as you do it. When you move or rotate an object you see the object move or rotate, not its bounding box. When you draw with a brush you see a close approximation to the final brush stroke as you draw, not a dotted line that is filled in later.

    Watch movie


    Better Brushes

    ZeusDraw has a selection of vector brushes (Smooth Brush, Shaded Brush, Multi-Hair Brush), and it also has an object brush that allows you to paint with any piece of artwork – vector or bitmap.

    Watch movie

    When the object brush is used with a textured bitmap, you can obtain results similar to those in a pixel based paint program. But the brush strokes remain objects – they can be selected, moved, scaled, rotated, or deleted. The brush’s path may be modified, and its attributes (type, width, color, and randomness) can be edited with a live (as you do it) display of the results. A brush sample window provides a space to try out brushes and see the effects of different settings. ZeusDraw comes with a library of brushes, the means to create and add your own brushes to the library, and a way to save a set of brushes with your design file.

    Better Path Tools

    ZeusDraw simplifies Bezier curves. With ZeusDraw’s path tools you enter control points in order along the path (more logical and intuitive, since the shape of the polygon made by the control points is a rough indicator of the shape of the curve). While adding points to a curve you can go back at any time and move any of the points that you have already entered, making it easy to obtain the shape you want.

    Watch movie

    When editing an existing path, all the points are available for editing – there is no confusing secondary selection tool.

    Watch movie



    Better Gradient Tool

    ZeusDraw lets you edit gradients in place, on the the objects they are filling. The live editing lets you change the position, orientation and type of the gradient as well as the number, color and spacing of the gradient colors and see the results as you work. You can also drag and drop colors directly to the gradient.

    Watch movie




    Better Color Picker

    ZeusDraw comes with a version of the Shades Color Picker built in.

    Watch movie

    The Color Chips palette shows all the colors currently used in the design. Changing the color of a chip changes all objects in the design that are that color. The Swatches palette lets you keep colors and gradients with your file, even if they are not currently being used.

    Watch movie


    Better Text

    Using ZeusDraw you enter text directly where you want it, without any “text-box”. The text can then be transformed (moved, scaled, rotated, skewed) and the transformed text can be edited in place with the text tool. The text can be turned into paths for further graphic modification.

    Watch movie


    Bitmaps and Stencil Bitmaps

    In addition to working with normal full-color bitmaps (jpeg, tif, png, gif and bmp), ZeusDraw can use grayscale bitmaps as stencils. The resulting artwork can be re-colored in the same way as normal vector objects – either using the object inspector or by dropping a color chip on them. You can use images from clip art disks, like these frogs, or use bits of scanned texture to make interesting brushes. If you open a full color bitmap as a stencil, ZeusDraw will convert it to a stencil for you.

    Watch movie


    Power Copying

    ZeusDraw’s Duplicate Tool is used to place or stamp copies of your graphics. It can also be used to drag and drop copies of graphics that you select into other programs such as Mail, Pages and Keynote.

    Watch movie

    ZeusDraw also has Multi-Copy Tools that let you place equally spaced multiple copies of an object along a line, an arc, a full circle or a path as you draw.

    Watch movie


    Great Layout and Construction Aids

    ZeusDraw has Snap to Grid, but it also has Snap to Point, Snap to Path for precision drawing, and Snap to Angle for drawing arcs and rotating objects.

    Watch movie

    Automatic alignment guides let you line up your art-work by just dragging objects with your mouse. When you are close to lining up with another object, a line appears, and when you release the dragged object, it snaps into place.

    Watch movie

    Draw by gesture or by the numbers. The Transformation Palette lets you move, rotate, scale or offset by by an amount you chose. With the Geometry Inspector you can directly set the size and position of an object. Measure distance and angle with the Measuring Tools.

    Watch movie


    Better Viewing Tools

    ZeusDraw has a complete set of easily accessible viewing tools including a separate undo for views. You can zoom up to take a look at a detail and then easily return to your original view.

    ZeusDraw also has a tablet and trackball mode that allows two handed operation when using a pressure sensitive tablet – the pen and tablet function as the pointer in the normal way while the trackball scrolls and the trackball buttons zoom in and out.

    Watch movie


    More features

    Blend Modes

    ZeusDraw supports the standard Adobe blend modes.

    Soft Edges

    Even with anti-aliased drawing, thin lines sometimes show artifacts on the screen. ZeusDraw’s new SoftEdges eliminate most of the artifacts making it more pleasant to draw on the screen and prepare artwork meant to be viewed on-screen.

    Read more

    Actual Size Viewing

    With ZeusDraw 100% means 100%. If you draw a one inch long line it will be very close to one actual inch long on the screen, rather than about 3/4 inch as with many other programs. This helps in visualizing how your design will look when it is printed.

    No Size Limits

    Designing a banner or billboard? ZeusDraw will work for you. There are no limits on the size of your design.

    Email from Within the Program

    You can e-mail either an area of your design or selected objects from within ZeusDraw. Works with Apple Mail, Eudora, MS Entourage or the AOL mail client.

    Arrows and Dashes

    Use the ones that come with ZeusDraw or create your own.

    Tiled Output

    ZeusDraw gives you tiled printing and tiled pdf/PostScript output of any size area of a design with a tile size that you choose.

    Bitmap and pdf/PostScript Export

    ZeusDraw can create jpeg, png, tiff, gif and bmp bitmaps at any resolution and pdf/PostScript files of any area of your design. You can choose to export the selection, the page bounds, your entire drawing or a specified area.

    Eyedropper Tool

    Copy selected attributes from on object to another.

    Complete Help Book

    ZeusDraw has a standard Macintosh Help Book. You don’t have to be online to read it.

    All-New LinkOptimizer 4 Is Here!

    LinkOptimizer is a workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign. Dubbed “the greatest plug-in of all time” by Glen Drake of Pindar Publishing Group, LinkOptimizer works automatically with Adobe Photoshop to:
    • reduce the size of images linked to InDesign document by eliminating excess image data:
      LinkOptimizer will automatically reduce the image resolution, scale and crop the images in Photoshop according to their dimensions in the InDesign document and the target resolution specified, and reimport them to InDesign at 100%.
    • perform essential image adjustments:
      convert colors,
      apply sharpening,
      merge layers.
    • convert file formats (full version only):
      JPEG > TIFF, PNG > PSD etc.

    LinkOptimizer allows to dramatically reduce the size of InDesign job, cut down on processing time and reduce production costs.


    The all-new LinkOptimizer 4 arrives with over 20 new powerful
    features and improvements, including revamped user interface,
    image format conversion, settings presets and processing logs.

    Note: This special 50% discount applies to the full version of LinkOptimizer as well ($129.97, full price $259.95) Get the full version of LinkOptimizer here…

    LinkOptimizer vs LinkOptimizer Light -

    “LinkOptimizer makes me extremely happy!” – says Nynke Tiekstra of ColtsfootMedia, Netherlands, – “It just converted 10,000 images in a 1800 pages project. It saved us at least 40 hours work and proved to be 100% accurate.”

    LinkOptimizer will help you save valuable storage space, time and reduce production costs by:

    • saving valuable disk space
    • reducing output time
    • speeding up job transfer to outside sources
    • reducing the job cost through faster processing by service providers
    • speeding up your overall job turnaround

    We are repeating this ZOT due to server problems encountered last week.
