Revolutionary Photo Handling
Xara Photo & Graphic Designer’s photo handling beats other graphics programs on many fronts.

Fast, non-destructive photo handling
Xara 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 offers completely non-destructive photo editing (which means you can edit your photo as many times as you like without the loss of quality that is normal in other photo programs), and it uses a fraction of the RAM required by other products. It can handle multiple very high resolution images with ease, even on a modest PC.

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
Photo & Graphic Designer includes a revolutionary integrated, ultra-fast, non-destructive photo editing tool. It offers both automatic real-time photo enhance and manual controls (brightness, contrast, sharpen, blur, saturation, temperature and a new cross process option) 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.

Combine this with features such as vector masking, layer blending, feathering – all in the non-destructive, memory efficient way – and you have something that no other photo tool can provide.

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, so you’ll never know they were there! See some examples

v365 includes a new Magnetic Lasso for quick and easy cutting out of any object in your photo. Or for images with challenging outlines (eg a person’s hair) there’s the Background Erase tool. See some Background Erase examples

The Color Enhance control is another powerful tool for photo manipulation. It’s 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. See some Color Select & Enhance examples

Creative Effects
Xara 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.

Most modern Adobe Photoshop plug-ins work as Live Effects, giving access to a huge range of free and commercial plug-ins for creating effects that would take a lifetime to explore.

The Content Catalog also includes almost 30 ready-made photo filter pre-sets that you can simply drop on your photo to create popular effects and moods such as ‘summer’, ‘vintage’ and ‘exposed’. See some examples.

In addition there’s an Effect Painter and flexible mask and region tools that enable you to enhance or apply effects to selected areas of a photo.

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.

This can provide a near miraculous ability to stretch and change the aspect ratio of photos, without apparently distorting the content of the photo.

And there is also ‘content aware zooming’, which works in a similar way but allows you to resize the object that is the center of interest without increasing the size of the total image.

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
Xara Photo & Graphic Designer offers all the tools that a creative designer could need for illustration and text handling.

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.

The Quickshape tools (rectangle, circle etc) allow you to draw pre-set shapes very quickly and easily. Editing shapes and lines is easy and the Freehand line drawing tool even offers a slider for retroactive smoothing after you’ve drawn your line. And there’s support for pressure sensitive tablets too.

The powerful Shape Eraser and Shaper Builder tools allow you to easily erase or build on your image with a ‘paintbrush’ type action, whether it’s a vector drawing or a photo.

Advanced Text Handling
Photo & Graphic Designer offers everything you need for adding creative text to your designs.

The Text Tool allows you to enter as many lines of text as you want, at any place in your document and 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.

Like any word processing program you have full control over the text styles, including font (with 600+ integrated Google fonts, and 1500+ Font Awesome / Google Material Design icons & symbols), color, justification, line spacing and kerning etc.

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. It couldn’t be easier.

The blend tool tweens or blends from one shape to another. It’s ultra-fast, click-drag simple, works with vector shapes, text and photos.
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.

Xara was also the first application to offer vector feathering (sometimes called Soft Vectors). This is a technique of slightly blurring the edges of objects to help them blend into the background and enables high quality realistic images to be created more quickly and easily than in any other software.

The combination of feathering and transparency is great for any photo composition work, as well as realistic vector shading, vital for any good illustration.
and more…

What’s NEW:
Designer 16.3 added support for Paragraph Backgrounds. Now in 17.0 you can also set Paragraph Borders, with or without a paragraph background. These offer some great new choices for heading and paragraph styles (they are also quite a common style in Word documents, so improve the success of Word import). The Text Improvements heading above and in fact all Heading 1 headings in this document show an example of how this can be used. The headings are set to have a 1px border on all 4 sides, with a paragraph background color also set. As you can see the border and background extend to cover the entire width of the text area.

Border Color
Set the border line color here. You can either choose one of the document’s named colors from the dropdown list, or click the Edit button so you can use the color editor to choose any other color, or a shade of one of your document colors. You can also set the Paragraph Border Color from the color line, by right- clicking on any color and choosing the Set Paragraph Border option on the color menu. Note that you must first close the Paragraph Border & Background dialog to set colors from the color line.

Background Color
This works in exactly the same way as the Border Color control and again you can set paragraph background colors from the color line. Choose the Default option if you don’t want any background color.

On the right hand side of the dialog, the Sides controls allow you to turn the border line on or off for any of the 4 sides. You can also choose what size margin you want on each of the 4 sides. The left and right margin values control the space between the edges of the text area and the edges of the visible paragraph border and/or background. So for example if you want the border/background to extend well to the left of a left justified heading, so there is some empty space before the start of the text, increase the left margin value

The new dialog allows the alignment of an existing tab stop to be changed, between left, center, right and decimal options.

Normally the position of a tab stop is set using the tab stop markers on the Ruler, but here you can set the position numerically.

Leader Character
Type any single character into this field, to fill the selected tab space with that character. Delete the contents of this field to revert to a normal unfilled tab space.

Show Rulers
This checkbox is provided for convenience, to turn the Rulers on and off instantly. The top ruler shows the postions of tab stops for the current selected paragraph. Use Window > Bars > Rulers to control the same option from the Windows menu.

Tracking Adjustments
You can adjust the tracking on a tab space to control the spacing of the characters of the tab leader.

Moving Embedded Objects
Now in Designer 17 you can move embedded objects around in text just by dragging on them, a usability improvement that should be a great time saver. As you drag an embedded object over text, a blue rectangle is shown to indicate where the object will be repositioned if you release it at that position. The position of the top of the blue rectangle determines the line into which the object is inserted. Embedded objects can be set to inline, text flows to the right, or text flows to the left. You can control these settings from the Embedded graphic options dialog (right-click on the object and choose Embedded graphic options … on the context menu). The behavior when dragging embedded objects partly depends on which setting is enabled.

Inline objects
If the object is inline and on a line of its own (no text to its left or right), dragging it left or right within the same paragraph, changes only the justification. It can be left aligned, center aligned, or right aligned.

Text flows left/right
• If the embedded object is set to have text flowing to its left or right, or the object is dragged from one paragraph to another, the drag behavior is different.
• Dragging the object near to the left edge of the text, will set it to text flows to the right.
• Dragging the object near to the right edge of the text, will set it to text flows to the left.
• And dragging it near to the center will set it to be inline, center justified on a line of its own (no text shown on either side). Again, as you drag the blue rectangle indicates where the object will be positioned.

Small objects inline
It’s common to embed small objects like this icon inline in text, just as if it were a character, instead of on a line of its own as in the examples described above. In this case the drag behavior is different again, dragging simply allows you to position the object in text anywhere. A red text caret appears as you drag, to indicate the insertion point.

• Optimized image alignment with significantly higher speed for large panoramas and increased accuracy.
• A better error tolerance against bad control points , which improves the success rate for difficult panoramas.
• Exposure correction provides more reliable results, even for panoramas with large over or under- exposed areas.

Designer is already well known for the breadth and depth of its support for import and export formats, which we continue to expand with each new release. In v17 all the main import and export filters have been updated to support the new Paragraph Borders and Tab Leader features, as well as the improvements listed below. And as always, all filters have many other small improvements and bug-fixes made in response to user and testing feedback
