Microsoft Publisher 2013 helps you create, personalize, and share a wide range of professional-quality publications and marketing materials with ease.
Effects. Use professional-looking effects for text, shapes and pictures, including softer shadows, reflections, and OpenType features such as ligatures and stylistic alternates, that are familiar to use because they work like the effects in other Office applications that support them.
Online pictures. Use Publisher to search your online albums on Facebook, Flickr and other services and add pictures directly to the document, without having to save them first to your desktop, laptop, or slate.**
**Internet connection required

Mailings tab. All your personalization needs in one place in the ribbon
Photo Printing. It’s now even easier to print your great-looking publications or photo albums at any print shop with the ability to save all of your pages to a common picture format, such as JPG.
Email. Share a page as an email or send the entire publication in the email message (as HTML) – all the pages will be combined to one message for you.

A touch-enabled device is required to use any multi-touch functionality. However, all features and functionality are always available by using a keyboard, mouse, or other standard or accessible input device. Note that new touch features are optimized for use with Windows 8.
Some functionality may vary, based on the system configuration. Some features may require additional or advanced hardware or server connectivity.
Note: System requirements are rounded up to the nearest 0.5 GB, to be conservative. For example, if we measure an application’s required hard disk space to be 1.99 GB, we recommend 2.5 GB of disk space. Our hard disk system requirements are intentionally larger than the actual disk space usage of the software.
A graphics processor helps increase the performance of certain features, such as drawing tables in Excel 2013 or transitions, animations, and video integration in PowerPoint 2013. Use of a graphics processor with Office 2013 requires a Microsoft DirectX 10-compliant graphics processor that has 64 MB of video memory. These processors were widely available in 2007. Most computers that are available today include a graphics processor that meets or exceeds this standard. However, if you or your users do not have a graphics processor, you can still run Office 2013.
