Two New Releases - Xara Photo & Graphic Designer 6 and Xara Designer Pro 6

June 16, 2010

Xara Xtreme has had a major makeover for Version 6 and there are new names to go with the new features and new look! Xara Xtreme is now Xara Photo & Graphic Designer 6 and the new feature packed Xara Xtreme Pro becomes Xara Designer Pro 6.

Xara Photo & Graphic Designer and Xara Designer Pro are the world's highest performing graphics software titles—by a large margin. Their speed enables more complex and realistic graphics to be created more easily and in less time.

Both products are very flexible with vector or bitmap graphics, making them perfect for any design that combines drawing, photos and text, from simple button or logo designs to incredibly detailed illustrations, posters, multi-page brochures, photo compositions and web graphics. And they can produce animations too, including animated GIF and Flash.

One of the unique selling points of the Xara Designer titles is that they offer a single application for every type of creative or artistic document creation. Instead of requiring three or more separate programs to edit photos, or create web graphics, illustrations or page layouts, Xara Designer is one super-fast, easy-to-use program that does it all.

Xara Photo & Graphic Designer 6 is ideal for any graphics enthusiast, small company or academic user that requires a single general purpose photo and graphics design tool. Xara Designer Pro 6 includes all the same features, but adds a range of more advanced website design features, plus support for tools that might typically be required by professional designers such as PANTONE®, CMYK colors, color separations and PDF/X. It also supports multiple processors for even faster performance.

New features in these releases include:


"With a dramatic new look and user interface the Designer 6 series is the fastest, easiest and most powerful we've produced. It includes a range of photo editing enhancements including our unique Content Aware Zoom that intelligently scales the important content of photos. This is a world first."

"It's always struck me as wrong that you should have to use separate programs for what are very closely related creative activities, such as vector illustration, photo work, and page layout or website layout. Xara Designer Pro 6 is a single program that can be used for everything from really advanced vector design work, to photo editing and page layout. It has world-class PDF support, and it’s one of the best tools for web graphics. Xara Designer Pro 6 provides the most flexible page layout of any web authoring product. It offers website creation for designers, not programmers." says MD Charles Moir.

Xara Photo & Graphic Designer 6 costs just $89 for US customers, £69 for UK (inc VAT) and €69 (inc VAT) for the EU. Xara Designer Pro 6 costs $299 for US customers, £249 for UK (inc VAT) and €279 (inc VAT) for the EU. It operates on Windows XP/Vista/7
