Create columns and rows of text easily in Illustrator by using the Area Type options.

3.For this example, check Preview and change the Number text field under the heading of Columns to 2, and click OK.
4.Choose File > Save. Leave this document open.
that's all mate....
Problem: The image looked great in Photoshop, but now that you've converted it to CMYK, saved the file as a TIFF, and placed it into QuarkXPress, InDesign, PageMaker, etc., the image looks awfulway oversaturated and totally whacked.
Reason: The preview of CMYK TIFFs just looks like that, so don't freak outif it looked right in Photoshop, it should print fine. Okay, what if you saved the file as an EPS, and when you place the image into your page layout app, the color of the image looks okay, but it's not crisp and clear, but pixelated.
Reason: By default, the preview embedded within EPS images is a lame 256-color preview.
Solution: In the EPS Options dialog, under Preview, choose JPEG. That way, it sends a 24-bit, full-color preview, rather than the lame 256-color preview.
