What precisely are you trying to do? Are you creating an advertisement? Are you trying to publish a newspaper? Photoshop is an image editing program. Creating text, while possible, won't look nearly as good as it would if you used a layout program. All of these programs have a bit of a learning curve though.

The simplest/cheapest/fastest solution would be to engage the newspaper's design department to design the ad for you. However, be clear about what you require. If you wish to retain the design for use in other papers/pubs you must state that up front.

The other options would be to design it yourself or hire a designer to do it. Designing it yourself is complicated by buying publishing software, learning the software, designing it and outputting it in a format acceptable to publications (pdf-x, layout, etc.)

If you are in a real hurry to get the job done, then I highly recommend you hire a designer to do it for you. Someone with experience in Print output.

If you have the time to learn then there are a few good applications out there, but the industry standard for print is Adobe Illustrator and InDesign. Neither of these can be beat.

They are worth the purchase price and there is a plethora of resources on the internet to help you learn almost every aspect of the software. INCLUDING Experts Exchange!

You can download a trial version from Adobe.

I have been using Illustrator for years and as a professional, I SWEAR by it!

Good Luck! and Happy Designing!
