All features in
Xara Designer Pro X
Create your own webpages without any previous experience. Customize easily using drag & drop.
You always see 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.
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 which can then be used to define other versions for smaller or larger displays. This way, you can make websites that perfectly fit smartphones, tables and extra-large desktop monitors.
All contents are automatically synced. The positioning and design of individual objects can be separately defined for each type display. For displays with a higher pixel density, such as smartphones, high resolution versions of your images are automatically delivered.
Full screen objects
Define your images as fullscreen to automatically expand to fill the visitor's browser.
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.
Anyone can make a vertically scrollable website. Stand out by making a horizontally scrollable site where you can display your image portfolio as a gallery or show your products in the form of a panorama website.
Single-page websites are a major trend right now in web design.
Easily make your website into a one-pager with Xara Designer Pro X by combining several pages into one.
Turn your website into an interactive experience with amazing animations.
For example, you can create dynamic page transitions or make page contents fade in when clicked.
Fill your website background with text and images.
When you're working with large screens, in particular, it doesn't make sense to make all content fullscreen.
Optimized for high-resolution displays
On many high-resolution displays (such as retina displays) standard websites can often appear blurry.
Xara Designer Pro X allows you to deliver a high-resolution version of your webpage so that everything looks crisp and sharp.
Over 600 web safe fonts
In Xara Web Designer Pro X you can choose from over 600 additional fonts. Even unusual fonts are now correctly displayed in any browser.
Thanks to the improved search function you can quickly find just the right font.
Integrating online shops
Xara Web Designer Pro X makes it easy to integrate online shop systems into your website.
Thanks to SFTP and FTPS support, your website is protected against unwanted access during upload.
Password protection for websites
When uploading via the Xara Online portal, you can now protect your entire domain with a password.
Easy image optimization
Make the most out of your photos by adjusting brightness, contrast, colors and saturation in the blink of an eye. Each aspect can be controlled with its own slider or use the 1-click optimization tool for instant results.
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 achieve perfect levels of 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
BONUS! 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 for the latest camera models
In addition to all standard image file formats, Xara Designer Pro X supports the import of raw formats from over 590 camera models.
Even more options with Photoshop plugins
Xara Designer Pro X supports Adobe Photoshop plugins, which can be integrated and applied easily.
You can use all the plugins on bitmaps and vector drawings as usual.
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 one of the fastest of its kind 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.
For simplified graphic production, use smart shapes from the content catalogue. 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.
Using the integrated 3D tool, you can create impressive three-dimensional objects in real time from text, graphics and forms – includes true-to-life light reflections and shadow.
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.
Create unique fonts or digital paintings that look like they've been handpainted.
Use the new art brush to create customized graphics and vectors.
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.
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 and can find inspiration for completely new graphics of your own.
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.
Dynamic guide lines show you the corner points of existing objects when placing your content. You can magnetically dock items to these lines.
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.
Customize line height and line spacing, or let the text flow along shapes or run over several pages.
Set up a specific format or use the text styles. These formats can then be easily applied to other text areas.
You have the option of letting text automatically flow around elements and images.
Standardized PDF/X files ensure that your files are accurately sent to the print shop. Texts, images, and colors will then be printed exactly the way they looked on your computer.
Xara Designer Pro X supports all relevant standard formats, as well as file formats from Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and other layout programs.
Integrate brilliant HD videos and use them directly in your presentation.
Videos can be a great way to start or break up long presentations.
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.
