Features of Xara Photo & Graphic Designer 365

Revolutionary Photo Handling

Fast, non-destructive photo handling
Photo & Graphic Designer photo handling beats other graphics programs on many fronts. It's much, much faster, produces smaller files and it's non-destructive. It makes the perfect photo composition tool. Photo & Graphic Designer is also unique in the way it handles and stores photos, which means that files containing photos can be anywhere from 3 to 100 times smaller than with other programs.

Integrated Photo Tool
Includes a revolutionary integrated, ultra-fast, non-destructive photo editing tool. It offers both manual and automatic real-time photo enhance (brightness, contrast, sharpen, blur, saturation and temperature) plus real-time scaling and rotation even on very high res images. Other features include flexible cropping, red eye removal, advanced shadow & highlights and brightness levels controls, perspective correction.

Advanced Photo Manipulation
The powerful photo tools can produce almost miraculous changes and improvements to your photos.

  • The Photo Healing and Magic Erase tools makes it quick and easy to seamlessly erase unwanted objects from your photo completely
  • The Background Erase tool removes the background from your photo so you can place it on a different background
  • The Color Enhance control is incredibly quick and easy to perform any enhance operation - such as a change of brightness, contrast or color - based on a selected color in your image
  • In addition, there are flexible mask and region tools that enable you to enhance selected areas of a photo

Creative Effects
Photo & Graphic Designer includes a selection of 60+ creative 'Live Effect' plug-ins that can transform both photos and vector drawings (they are called Live Effects because the object remains editable even after applying the effect). Effects include oil painting, pencil and crayon drawing, crumple, fish-eye, waves, 'liquid paint' for creating caricatures and many, many more. 

Photo Panoramas
Perhaps the easiest to use panorama maker. Drop a series of photos on the page, click one button and you'll get a perfect, seamless joined panoramic image. 

Intelligent Scaling
The Photo Tool includes innovative intelligent image scaling technology that allows 'content aware scaling', which means images can be stretched or squashed while retaining the proportions of important parts of the picture. 

Bitmap Tracer
Photo & Graphic Designer's powerful bitmap tracer can convert your bitmaps – typically photos, line-art or logos – into editable vector shapes.

All The Creative Tools You Need

Drawing Tools
Photo & Graphic Designer is the primary tool of many illustrators and includes a set of powerful but really easy to use vector line and shape drawing and editing tools.

Advanced Text Handling
The Text Tool allows you to enter as many lines of text as you want, at any place in your document. You can enter your text at any angle and you can also set your text along a curved path. Additionally, just like any drawn object in Photo & Graphic Designer, you can freely resize it on the page, and apply any of the effects, such as transparency, fills, molds and so on - and yet the text remains editable.

3D Extrude
The world's fastest, slickest, and highest quality vector 3D extrude tool. Take any shape, and just drag on the face to create a beautifully lit and shaded 3D version. Drag on the sides to extend the extrude depth. 

Blends
Blends can be used to create complex highlights, blurred edges on objects, repetitive patterns and many other effects, in other words it's a vital tool for creative design. Photo & Graphic Designer performs blending in a very quick and memory-efficient way compared to other drawing packages - meaning less waiting for you and less draining of your systems resources.

Transparency & Feathering
Xara was the first vector application to introduce transparency, and continues to this day to offer the easiest, most advanced transparency control of any software. With click-drag simplicity you can create graduated transparencies to any object, photo, text, and vector shape.

Animated Flash Export
Xara Photo and Graphic Designer offers a genuinely easy way to create really efficient Flash animations.

Shadows, Bevels & Contours
Photo & Graphic Designer offers several powerful tools that allow you to add realistic effects with a single click. Apply, remove, and modify semi-transparent (or 'soft') shadows to any object with the Shadow tool. Use the Bevel tool to add bevels to any object, giving them the realistic appearance of depth. And add contours around objects with the Contour tool. All resolution independent (don't lose quality when you scale them)!

Productivity & Useability Benefits

Speed
Photo & Graphic Designer is based on the world's most sophisticated, highest performance vector rendering engine. Quite simply this makes it the fastest graphics software to be found. Just what you need when you're working with complex illustrations or huge photos!

Direct Action Tools
The Direct Action Tools allow you to create effects such as transparency, shadows, bevels or gradient fills in an interactive, fast and intuitive way.

Easy Drag & Drop
Many tasks in Photo & Graphic Designer benefit from being able to use the drag and drop principle, which is the most intuitive way of working and a great time saver. It also supports drag and drop import of files, such as photos.

Solid Object Editing
Instead of dragging outlines when you draw, move, rotate or resize objects, Photo & Graphic Designer offers solid live object manipulation, which simply makes it much easier to see what you're doing. Only Photo & Graphic Designer is fast enough to do this on complex vector graphics.

Infinite Undo / Redo
Being able to change what you have done is vital in a graphics package. Photo & Graphic Designer allows unlimited undo, making experimentation easy.

Zoom to 25,000%
The Zoom tool allows magnification up to 25,000%, perfect for detailed work. And it's super-fast and resolution independent too.

Top Quality Screen Display
Xara introduced the world's first vector anti-aliasing to bring maximum screen quality and is still a pioneer with the fastest, highest quality anti-aliasing available in any drawing program. 

Compatibility With Industry Standards

Import & Export
Photo & Graphic Designer offers support for a huge range of file formats, making it easy to exchange your work with other users and programs. This includes common bitmap types (eg GIF, JPEG, BMP, PNG, TIFF, PSD, and RAW photos) and key vector types (eg PDF and AI/EPS, SVG, and EMF/WMF). For text Photo & Graphic Designer can import Word files (.doc and .docx) and supports RTF (Rich Text Format).

PSD Support

Photo & Graphic Designer offers industry leading export of super-clean, very compact PDF files (including support for graduated color fills and flat / graduated transparency). Combined with the PDF import feature, this provides another way to interchange files.
