New Xara Designer Pro X9

July 09, 2013

Xara is pleased to announce the release of their flagship program, Xara Designer Pro X9, the ultimate all-in-one creative tool that provides all the tools for a range of graphic design tasks that would normally require three or more separate ‘suite’ programs: illustration, photo editing, advanced page layout (Desktop Publishing), web graphics, websites and more.

By combining all the photo, graphics, page layout and web design tools in one program, Xara Designer ProX9 achieves a smaller memory footprint, faster performance, no program switching and reduced hardware requirements. This also has the advantage of an easier learning curve, high productivity and excellent value for money.

Xara Designer Pro X9 key features:

Xara Designer Pro X9 is the world's highest performing graphics software with speeds enabling more complex and realistic graphics to be created more easily and in less time. It also supports multiple processors for even faster performance, and provides tools that might typically be required by professional designers such as PANTONE®, CMYK, color separations and PDF/X.

Charles Moir, founder of Xara, said:
"We take the view that the production of a creative document, whether it be printed, PDF or a website, is far more productive coming from a single program than separate ones. Why switch tool just because you want to create or edit some illustration on the page, or enhance a photo. Better that these are done in-situ on the page than out of context. Xara has always been renowned as being fast. By combining the suite of tools into one program, the result is not just lightning fast, but requires a fraction of the memory and PC power of other suites."

"This latest version of Xara Designer Pro X9 is a large step forward on all fronts. With significantly enhanced page layout (DTP) features, enhanced vector and photo tools and significantly more capable website creation features, and the unique 'DTP for the web' abilities, Xara Designer Pro X9 is the best, most powerful Designer tool we have ever created."

Xara Designer Pro X9 costs just \$299 for US customers, £249 for UK (inc VAT) and €279 (inc VAT) for the EU. Upgrades are available from \$99, £79 and €89. There are also ‘welcome’ discounts for Adobe® customers who are looking for a subscription-free alternative to Creative Cloud™.

It operates on Windows XP/Vista/7/8 and requires a minimum 500MB of RAM and 300MB of hard disc space.
