Editors' Review

Xara Photo & Graphic Designer gives you all the tools you need to enhance your photos or complete professional-grade graphic design projects. Through the app's intuitive interface, you'll find everything you need quickly, and the smooth controls mean you can focus all your energy on creating.

Pros

Vector graphics: This program lets you use Vector Graphics to create designs, which provides multiple advantages over other methods. These include smaller file size for a finished project and more realistic rendition of shadows in a 3D image, in addition to cleaner lines when an image is magnified.

Nice layout: Everything you need to use this program is conveniently arrayed across the top of the interface and down the left-hand side of the screen. The tools are also intuitive, so you'll quickly get the hang of using them.

Feature-packed: This app offers advanced features to help give your photos or designs a professional look. Some options include Shadow and Highlight Adjustments, Auto-rotation of Images, Selective Enhance by Color, and the ability to create Flash animations for use online.

Cons

No default: It is not possible to set this program as the default option for when you open an image file. That means the only way to open a photo or other image is by first opening Xara and then browsing for the file you want to open. Depending on how you use this program and on what scale, this may or may not be a big inconvenience.

Bottom Line

Xara Photo & Graphic Designer provides a comprehensive package of tools for photo editing and design creation. Its intuitive interface makes learning the ins and outs of the program quick and efficient, even for users with limited experience using this type of software. You can try it for free for 7 days, and the full purchase price is $89.99.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Xara Photo & Graphic Designer 10.1.2.35097.
