Research- creating and selling a health magazine.

Extracts from this document...


Overall Research Overall the research I conducted I found the following elements that I have outlined below. Firstly, I found out the steps involved into producing a magazine which enabled the group to make their work easier as they would know what to do. Also, I found out how to create a bar code in Macromedia Fireworks as bar codes appear on every magazine that is published.

Finally, I found that the software used by companies to produce magazines is called Microfilmaker. Also, I learnt that the magazine on health can be purchased online from websites like Amazon or shops such as WH Smith. ...read more.
