• We have two useful new tutorials for you this month: Firstly Part 2 of our tutorial on creating websites, which covers some more advanced ideas such as adding news, video and social media to your site. Over on the Xara Xone Gary Bouton has ceated a new movie covering photo retouching in Photo & Graphic Designer or Designer Pro. Also new in the Xara Xone, how to start a font collection, 20 must have fonts and where to get them. More info below.

  • And we have two great value offers. Firstly we're bundling top quality stock photos from Fotolia, worth $140, with Web Designer. Plus: budding composers might want to check out our launch offer on MAGIX Music Maker MX Premium, just added to the Xara site and online store (you can see all the MAGIX audio and video titles listed in the Xara online store here). More info below.

  • Inspirational Art this month is loosely on a theme of sports. Don't forget you can find more brilliant illustrations in the Xara Gallery, where we have just updated Ron Duke's selection (see below under Other News).
There's no escaping sport at the moment! Racing cars, boats & bikes, ice hockey, golf ... Xara artists have captured the moment.
Visit the Xara graphics forums to discuss or find answers to your graphics needs.
Our pick of Top Talk this month:
  • There's a new challenge in the Fonts and Typography Forum called Font Play, set the first Friday of each month. This month there's an extra Font Play - see how creative you can be with the new Roundhead TG font (see under Other News) in the Roundhead Font Play.
  • There are some imaginative scribbles being submitted in the scribble challenge this month. It's all a bit of fun so why not get scribbling in the July Scribble Challenge.
  • July's Stop&Post includes stereograms, cartoons, icons and thangkas. Why not show us your work in progress too, it doesn´t matter if it´s finished or not as long as it has been done with Xara software. Join now.
