Xara today released version 8 of its popular Web Designer software. Xara Web Designer MX (v8) together with a more advanced version Xara Web Designer MX Premium (v8) combine the advantages of customizable design templates and free-form, anything-anywhere web page design with flexible and innovative options for creating modern, multimedia websites. It offers unlimited possibilities for text layout, graphic design, image optimization and publishing, all in one easy-to-use program.
All aspects of the design can be customized. Users can re-arrange all page elements, add their own text, graphics and photos anywhere on the page. It's genuinely WYSIWYG, what you see in Xara Web Designer MX is exactly what you get on the web page. Xara Web Designer MX provides fast single-click re-coloring of all graphical elements throughout the entire website and uniquely amongst all web authoring tools there’s advanced text wrap around irregular shaped graphics and photos. The Designs Gallery includes a collection of widgets to add more dynamic functionality to the website. Site upload is covered too and there's even a free web hosting offer from MAGIX Online World!
The MX stands for Media Exchange whereby Xara Web Designer can exchange any graphic or photo with any other installed MAGIX MX application such as MAGIX Movie Edit Pro MX and MAGIX Online Albums, as well as Flickr and Facebook.
Xara Web Designer MX offers a host of additional exciting new and innovative features that enable both novice and professional web designers to quickly create and optimize content for greater impact on the web.
