You can use the tools listed below to publish or create assets for the projects you are working on. These site recommendations come with the following warnings:
- These sites were free or had free options when I posted them. That may have changed. I don’t expect you to pay for the tools, so choose another one if you find one requires a paid login now.
- Check for watermarks and other limitations. Some sites limit your use of their tools by adding giant watermarks over your content or only allowing you to save a few pages or images. Check the Terms of Service for the tool, and try saving some work to make sure the tool will allow you to publish professional work.
These tools allow you to create an online book, magazine, brochure, or catalog. They usually require that you upload a PDF.
