In Xara Web Designer you'll find a wide range of website templates for various topics and the Premium version even offers templates for different kinds of businesses. These templates are developed by professional graphic designers and meet the highest standards.
All of the website templates are completely customizable. Change the colors or move the elements around any way you want. You can also change the navigation by exchanging the menu, adjusting details or making your own design from scratch. Graphics, text and backgrounds can also be resized and moved around.
