IN THIS MONTH'S EDITION...
  • It's another great month for new tutorials. Our own Outsider tutorial provides an introduction to the Photo Tool of Photo & Graphic Designer and Designer Pro. Meanwhile in a bumper month on the Xara Xone Gary Bouton offers some insights for more advanced users of the photo features in his video tutorial Photo Composition Part 2. Plus there's Part 2 in the movie series on page layout, and there's a Guest Tutorial in which Rik Datta creates a frankly amazing illustration using the extrude tool. Last but not least Gary has some Tips & Tricks for creating big effects with small animated GIFs (you might have noticed them making a discrete come back recently).

  • Don't miss this month's Inspirational Art, which features another designer new to the Outsider. Don't forget you can browse thru all back issues of Inspirational Art via the drop down menu in the top right hand corner of the Art page. Feel free to give a G+ or Facebook Like to your favorites!

  • And if all this makes you think it's time to buy Designer Pro or Photo & Graphic Designer, then we have a little extra incentive in the form of free Fotolia photos with every copy. If you've already been there and done that, there's also a great offer on MAGIX Movie Edit Pro, Photostory and Video Pro. Details on all the offers below.
