sorry to say, but it's not good. the copy is not placed right, the spelling and grammar are awful, the tile and sub-title look cheap and out of place, the images are not right... i could go on for a while.

some of those things are just caused by the image its very fuzzy and out of place but the original is very different and clear.

but some of the things you've said are true...

No offense, but it looks pretty unprofessional, like it was done in Word or Powerpoint. You've also made a lot of huge errors. -Border your photos if they blend in to the background -Contour the text to the edges of the images (right now your paragraphs over lap the photos, and is just a block of text. It looks bad) -Never, EVER use the vanilla Wordart like you did in FEAR Special Feature. Get someone to make a custom, decent looking text -Always include sources with photos. Those game images are not yours, credit where it comes from. -You have a news article. There is no author, no location, and no date listed. That is bad. -There are huge spelling mistakes in the article. Fix them -The paragraph on Project Echo in the top-right is confusing. You don't explain what it is or why you 'favor it.' -Light background, dark text is easier to read and cheaper to print. -Get some color scheme. Black and white with some orange, 3D header is awful. And never use a pure black background, give it some pattern.

Agreed ^ but yeah i think the header text has to be the worst part, it looks like really cheaply done text.

Photoshop can do it, but the weapon of choice is Adobe In-Design.
