Xara Designer Pro X is a powerful software program that lets you adjust and create vector drawings, web graphics, photo composition, and even Flash animations.
The design of the UI is modern and looks a bit complicated. In order to use this program properly, certain prior experience with a similar app might be needed. If you do not possess such knowledge, then you can always access the extensive Help contents that the developers provide. The application offers everything from the usually written Help contents, to online video tutorials, daily tips, online forums, and workshops.
Xara Designer Pro X contains a lot of templates and examples (illustrations, website themes, photo calendars, CD/DVD covers and labels, animated banners, etc.) in the “Designs Gallery” panel, but only if you are online. Every time the program starts, it will quickly look for content updates, so that you can receive any new or modified content automatically.
The application integrates many photo editing tools that enable you to create specific effects such as transparency, shadows, bevels gradient fills, and the list goes on. The zoom tools let you work with a great deal of accuracy, seeing that magnification is possible up to 25,000%, no matter what resolution the picture has.
At any point in creating a project, you can access the “Document Information” panel that can show you the number of pages, bitmaps, fractals, objects and undo steps, and the size of every one of them. Here, you can also add a comment to the file.
Many tasks in Xara Designer Pro X can be performed by simply dragging and dropping, a principle that is going to simplify everything that you might need to do.
The program supports import and export from and to a large number of file formats such as XAR, PNG, JPG, GIF, PSD, PAI, ICO, EPS, CMX, HTML and DRW.
