Making a magazine template?

Hi i am a student and have been tasked with making a magazine a3 spread style - it is for a software review we have to do then present it in this way. I assumed photoshop or illustrator etc would have some straight forward templates to drop images and text into, they have some for cd covers etc so thought they would! Doens’t seem this task is as straight forward as first seemed!

Anyone any experience of doing this?? Any pointers or suggestions??

Many thanks for any input here!


What you may be looking for is Adobe InDesign, which specialises in magazine layouts.
