This article provides information on the version 6.5 of the QuarkXPress publishing software. One feature, QuarkVista, is a module for image manipulation. It extends the application's capabilities to include image editing within the context of the layout. In addition to standard image adjustments such as colour balance, levels, brightness, and contrast, it lets users apply a variety of common filters to images used in a layout. Users can now import native Adobe Photoshop documents into QuarkXPress and exploit the power of multi-layer Photoshop images without leaving QuarkXPress. Once imported, image layers can be switched on and off, opacities and blend methods can be modified, channels can be assigned and clipping paths can be chosen. The version also has an upgrade to QuarkXClusive, a module that puts powerful variable data publishing capabilities in the hands of users working with Mac OS X and lets users output customised, database-driven documents on HP Indigo digital presses. Other enhancements include support for guides on pasteboards on master pages, table enhancements such as grouping, and the ability to set bleed settings in print styles using software. The software also includes useful software from Quark partners.
