New Releases: Xara Photo & Graphic Designer 7 and Xara Designer Pro 7

May 25, 2011

Xara Photo & Graphic Designer 7 and Xara Designer Pro 7 both 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. They are the world's highest performing graphics software titles with their speed enabling more complex and realistic graphics to be created more easily and in less time.

Xara Photo & Graphic Designer 7 and Xara Designer Pro 7 are powerful, flexible bitmap and vector graphics programs, 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, AVI and Flash.

Xara Photo & Graphic Designer 7 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 7 includes all the same features, but adds a range of 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. Xara Designer Pro 7 is the ultimate all-in-one creative tool for everything from advanced illustrations, DTP and PDF documents to web graphics and websites.
 
New features in Xara Photo & Graphic Designer 7 and Xara Designer Pro 7 include new fly-out galleries with advanced docking options, a new magnetic snap feature that makes positioning and alignment of items on the page much easier, cut/copy/paste of whole pages including their attributes and layers within and between documents and an amazing photo erase feature that seamlessly erases objects from photos and replaces the space with an appropriate background sampled from other parts of the photo.

Xara Designer Pro 7 is Xara’s top of the line product that also includes all of the new features of the recently released Xara Web Designer Premium 7. These include the ability to create web slideshows for web presentations and Webinars, a new range of advanced photo and text animation ‘eye-catcher’ widgets, footers which automatically move as the page is resized, the ability to anchor graphics and photos into flowing text, automatic updating of repeating objects such as NavBars, headers and footers, and a new ‘live copy’ feature that enables the creation of multiple ‘live’ copies of vector or photo objects which all automatically update when any one is edited.

“Xara software has always been regarded as the easiest graphics software to learn, despite offering the highest performance. Xara Designer Pro 7, our flagship product, carries on the tradition by adding new innovations that will appeal to our professional users, as well as useability enhancements to make the software even easier for our growing audience of novice customers.” says Managing Director Charles Moir.
