Web Design

    No Programming
  • Create your own webpages without any previous coding experience. Customize easily using drag and drop. You will always preview the page as it will appear on the web.
    Over 200 Design Templates
  • Choose from over 200 website templates. These are license-free and fully pre-made with images and graphics. Each of the templates are fully customizable.
    Online Designer
  • Make changes to your website's text and images, even at the same time as others, on any device and from anywhere in the world.
    Create Mobile Websites
  • Create websites that are optimized for various display sizes. Just make a standard design that can then be used to define other versions for smaller or larger displays. This way, you can make websites that fit smartphones, tablets, and extra-large desktop monitors. All contents are automatically synced. The positioning and design of individual objects can be separately defined for each type of display. For displays with a higher pixel density, such as smartphones, high resolution versions of your images are automatically delivered.
    Parallax Scrolling
  • Parallax scrolling brings dynamics and depth to your website. Foreground and background optically separate from each other.
    Visitor Counters
  • You can now add a visitor counter to your page with just a few clicks, to keep an eye on how many users have visited your site.
    Full Screen Objects
  • Define your images as full screen to automatically expand to fill the visitor's browser.
    Fixed Elements
  • Easily prevent individual objects from moving when users scroll on your website. For example, you can fix the navigation bar so that it's always visible to visitors.
    Animation Trigger

Image Editing

    Image Optimization
  • Make the most out of your photos by adjusting brightness, contrast, colors, and saturation instantly. Each aspect can be controlled with its own slider or use the 1-click optimization tool.
    Advanced Image Optimization
  • Using the brightness level dialog you can edit the gradient curve of your photos. By changing the way the values are distributed, you can customize the brightness and contrast or create special effects. You can also achieve a professional white balance by defining white, gray, and black points in your images.
    Restore Lights & Shadows
  • Difficult lighting conditions with high contrast between light and dark often give rise to dead areas in images. You can edit such overexposed and underexposed spots. This allows you to pull more detail out of extreme areas and increase the dynamic range of your photos.
    Blend Modes for Color Dodge & Color Burn
  • Enhance individual color ranges in your images. With the tool for color dodge and color burn, you can darken or lighten precise sections.
    Special Blend Modes
  • Simply create special effects such as textures and double exposures by offsetting two objects with special blend modes, such as Stained Glass, Soft light, Hard light, Luminosity, and Color.
    Intelligent Scaling & Zoom
  • Change the proportions of your photos (intelligent scaling) or change individual elements in an image (intelligent zoom) without distorting other important elements.
    Photo Retouching
  • Use the photo heal tool to remove spots and wrinkles from people's faces. Magic Erase helps you remove larger unwanted elements, such as street signs.
    Crop Image Elements
  • You can select and extract image areas with the help of colors (color select tool) by drawing selection lines or selection areas around certain sections. In just a few steps, you can take image elements out of context and reposition them.
    Morphing Effect
  • Using the "liquid color" filter, you can change the shape of people's bodies. You can make people look thinner or more muscular. Or you can even use this filter to make caricatures or apply artistic effects.
    Perspective Correction & Horizon Straightening
  • "Converging lines" often occur when taking photos of buildings using a wide-angle lens. Converging lines are in fact parallel lines that meet at a single point in the distance. Correct them with just one click.
    Magnetic Lasso
  • Clipping sections in an image is now quicker than ever before. Draw an outline using the mouse and the intelligent selection tool will automatically create a path.
    Photo Effects
  • Use the huge selection of creative effects to transform your photos into works of art. Simply drag the filter you want to use onto your image. Or select a specific section of the image for targeted editing to give it a unique look.
    Integrated Panorama Montage
  • With the photo tool in Xara Designer Pro X, you can combine several individual images to create panoramas, including automatic focal length detection and correction of lens distortion.
    Panorama Studio 2
  • In addition to professional editing and finishing, Panorama Studio 2 lets you create virtual tours by connecting several panoramas together. Export is possible in a wide range of image formats, so you can create screensavers, interactive 3D panoramas or zoom images for websites.
    RAW Support
  • In addition to all standard image file formats, Xara Designer Pro X supports the import of raw formats from over 590 camera models.
    Photoshop Plug-Ins
  • Xara Designer Pro X supports Adobe Photoshop plug-ins, which can be integrated and applied easily. You can use all the plug-ins on bitmaps and vector drawings as usual.
    Non-Destructive Editing
  • Your original photos remain unchanged, so you're free to let your imagination run wild. All changes can be undone at any time without affecting quality, even after rescaling images.

Graphic Design

    Draw Vector Graphics
  • The powerful drawing tools allow you to draw lines, shapes, and curves exactly the way you want. Since images created in this way are made of vectors, they remain sharp to the tiniest detail and can be scaled without any loss to quality. The rendering engine is fast and is able to handle pages that feature complex graphics and drawings.
    Special Effects with Direct Action Tools
  • Using the direct action tools, you can intuitively create effects like transparency, edges, or gradients. Simply select the necessary tool and apply it to the graphic. You can see direct results, which means there's no need for any extra dialogs.
    Smart Shapes
  • For simplified graphic production, use smart shapes from the content catalog. These are intelligent shapes which can be easily edited with the help of special handles. You can easily adjust the position and alignment of a shape. If you change the text within a shape, the shape will automatically adjust to fit it.
    3D Tool
  • Using the integrated 3D tool, you can create three-dimensional objects in real time from text, graphics, and forms - includes true-to-life light reflections and shadow.
    Blend Tool
  • The blend tool lets you join two objects together. For example, you can simulate movement in images, create long shadows, or show one form developing into another.
    Vectorize Photos
  • Transform photos and logos into vector graphics with just a click using the powerful bitmap tracer. Scan in pencil drawings and transform them into graphics.
    Art Brush
  • Create unique fonts or digital paintings that look like they've been hand painted. Use the art brush to create customized graphics and vectors.
    Combine Shapes
  • Join simple forms like triangles, circles, and rectangles together to create complex graphics. To help you along, the program includes options for adding and subtracting shapes or cutting overlapping edges.
    Liquefying Vector Graphics
  • Customize your vectors by blowing them up, compressing, skewing, or blurring them.
    Linked Colors
  • Linked colors are variations on an output color. Usually saturation or brightness are modified to create color harmonies. The advantage of linking colors is that all variations are automatically adjusted when you make changes to the base color.
    Over 2,500 Graphic Elements
  • The program includes more than 2,500 graphic elements for free. You can adjust and enhance these in any way you want, so you'll always have decorative elements on hand.
    Support for Graphics Tablets
  • With Xara Designer Pro X, you can create professional drawings with a graphics tablet. It supports pressure-sensitive pens, which allows you to intuitively draw shapes with thick and thin lines.

Desktop Publishing: Layout & Typography

    Professional Desktop Publishing
  • With Xara Designer Pro X, you can easily create multipage publications such as brochures, flyers, newspapers, and business cards.
    Magic Snap
  • Dynamic guide lines show you the corner points of existing objects when placing your content. You can magnetically dock items to these lines.
    Live Object Copies
  • Turn objects into repeating elements. This allows you to synchronize changes made to one of the live object copies with all your pages.
    Design Template Sets
  • Choose from a wide range of template sets for various industries. A set consists of templates for flyers, business cards, and stationery in the same design. This gives everything a cohesive look. Add personal flair by customizing any of the templates to suit your style. All the templates are royalty-free and can even be used without limit to design your own PR and marketing schemes. This is true regardless of how many copies you produce or in what time period you use them.
    Detailed Typography
  • Customize line height and line spacing, or let the text flow along shapes or run over several pages.
    Text Styles
  • Set up a specific format or use the text styles. These formats can then be easily applied to other text areas.
    More Fonts
  • Unique fonts help you stand out and make your products more recognizable. You have access to over 600 additional fonts from the Google fonts library for this purpose.
    Customized Bullet Points
  • Use your company logo or other graphics as bullet points.
    Flowing Text
  • You have the option of letting text automatically flow around elements and images.
    Spell Check
  • Xara Designer Pro X includes a powerful spell checker.
    PDF/X Support

    Format Support
  • Xara Designer Pro X supports all relevant standard formats, as well as file formats from Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and other layout programs.

    Adding Videos
  • Integrate HD videos and use them directly in your presentations.
    Uniform Coloring
  • Simply find the color you want on the color palette and apply it to the graphics. They will then be displayed monochromatically in the selected hue. Alternatively, you could use the color temperature slider for more subtle color changes.
    Online Presentations
  • Create presentation websites with content that visitors can browse through at their leisure. Or password protect your web presentation in remote control mode and use the mouse or keyboard to control the most important steps.
