I often make posters or notices. for my wife's bowling club. and I make them up as I go along but they are not the best.
is there a programme I can use that will help me make them look more professional.

In the past I have used RonyaSoft Poster Designer (http://www.ronyasoft.com/products/poster-forge/) and Printer (http://www.ronyasoft.com/products/proposter/) for this and liked the results, it is not free...

GIMP might also be helpful, it's an open source and free equivalent of photoshop so can do some pretty advanced image editing. It might be helpful to you for this. Another tip i would give you is when trying to make something look professional stick to a limited range of colours, choose a combination of a few colours that look good together and then don't have any other colours in the final design except those few.

thanks also to you R.P88 . I have heard of both these but never used them . I thought Photoshop was for photography.
that's how much I know .will check them out and get back to you.

Both GIMP and photoshop are image editing programs, they can be used for photography post-processing, compositing things form one image into others, graphic design and a wide range of other visual applications. Basically If you have some starting images and graphics then something like GIMP (free) or photoshop (paid) will let you fit them together and add and alter effects to get an impressive final image out, which could be: a poster, a logo, a cool image for a computer background or for printing on a t-shirt... or many other things. GIMP can do everything photoshop can but some say it's interface is a little trickier to learn, but just as easy in the long run.
