    Hi all
    about to start on making a digipak for OCR ancillary with A2 students. plan was to edit pics in photoshop then import them into Illustrator artboards, but we only have illustrator CS3 which doesn't have the artboard feature. Can anyone share their ideas for creating the digipak layout? The only idea I had was to use a digipak template, import it into photoshop and then add the digipak panels that way. it looks quite pixelated though so bit worried this will lose them marks? could anyone share how they do this/better ways of doing it at all? does photoshop have the ability to draw out sections at all that could look like digipak panels?
    new to media so picking up the basics. any advice really appreciated!!!

    We use Indesign and have a template set up within it. The students then edit their images in photoshop and import them into Indesign. I can email you the template if you want it but obviously you would need Indesign! Could you set up a template in Publisher and then still use photoshop for text / manipulation?

    Not much to add except for seconding using InDesign. Illustrator isn't designed for this sort of task, whereas InDesign is.
