Xara Web Designer is unlike any web design software you will have seen before. It comes in 2 versions, Web Designer and Web Designer Premium; Premium offers advanced web and graphic design features - find out more below!
Why Web Designer?
Seeing is believing Simply watch our movie and you'll find out how to create a great looking website in minutes, no HTML skill required!
Traditional web authoring tools are really just HTML editors, they are designed to create text layouts, providing few graphical capabilities. And yet it's evident that the vast majority of modern websites are of a graphical nature. We believe you should have complete freedom to include anything - text, graphics, photos - anywhere on the page, using just one tool. And you shouldn't need to know, or even see, the HTML that goes into creating your site, any more than a car driver needs to know how an engine works.
Templates include individual web graphics, complete pages and even pre-built multi-page sites.
A one tool solution You only need one program for creating graphical websites - from design to publishing - and that's Web Designer.
Web Designer includes customizable web graphic, webpage and website template designs plus tools for creating your own vector graphics, for photo editing (an integrated ultra-fast, non-destructive photo tool), and for advanced text layout. The Designs Gallery also includes a collection of Widgets. Site upload is covered too and there's even a free web hosting offer!
Total design freedom Web Designer gives you total design freedom - using drag and drop you can literally place anything, anywhere on the page. And things which are normally difficult to achieve in HTML are a snap in Web Designer - for example text with curved edges, text or graphics at an angle, text flowing around objects - no problem!
WYSIWYG Whether you customize one of the bundled templates or create your own graphics or animations, it's genuinely WYSIWYG - what you see in Web Designer is exactly what you get on your website.
Quality results guaranteed Web Designer's templates are created by top professional designers, so the quality is guaranteed. But of course you can customize the color, text, images, size etc to create your own personal look without any loss of quality. It's the best of both worlds!
Clever stuff But we have some clever tricks too, to make things easier for you - here's just a few of the things that will save you time and trouble:
Liquid text flow around objects; easy mouseover, thumbnail and pop-up creation; automatic adjustment of photos to the correct web resolution; one-click change of site wide theme colors and shades; automatic color matching of imported objects such as buttons; a concept of 'repeating objects' such as headings and button bars - edit one instance and they all update; and buttons and text panels that automatically stretch as you change the text.
Compatibility Working with industry standards is vital, so Web Designer sites are W3C compliant, cross browser compatible (IE 6+, Firefox, Safari, Chrome) and XHTML, CSS standards based.
It can also import a huge range of files types for vector graphics, image and text including PDF, RTF, RAW, PSD, TIFF and of course JPEG, PNG, GIF.
Choose a design Pick your page design from the bundled templates, all created by professional designers so that quality is guaranteed. There are pre-built , ready linked multi-page sites, or you can build your own from the page layouts offered in co-ordinated theme sets. Add additional pages by simply duplicating the current one or dropping another layout from the Designs Gallery - made even easier by an auto color-matching feature that allows you to match newly added pages to existing ones.
Then you can customize the pages with complete freedom and absolutely zero loss of quality.
Customize as required Use simple drag and drop to position things on the page as you wish; enter your text (spell checker included); drag and drop any new items such as text panels, headings or extra buttons from the templates in the Designs Gallery or import your own or create new images with the drawing tools; set up links on your NavBars and menus; drag and drop your own photos (photo editor included if you need to crop or adjust brightness, contrast etc); customize colors with the simple one-click theme color editing.
Add widgets to your site And it's a snap to add widgets to your site, such as Google Maps, Picasa photo albums and slideshows, YouTube movies, forms, news feeds and many, many more...
What's more the Designs Gallery includes a collection of popular widgets that can be just dragged onto the page you're working on. Note: Premium has a larger selection of widgets including the new 'eye catcher' animated text and photo widgets, and e-commerce widgets such as Paypal.
Publish Check your design in the browser preview and then simply enter your FTP details and click Publish.
And if you don't already have a web host, you can take advantage of the completely free web hosting offer included with Web Designer from MAGIX.
Create Web Graphics
Use professional templates Web Designer also includes template designs for individual graphics, from buttons, NavBars and headings to text boxes and speech bubbles! Again they are all created by professional designers and can be customized to fit your site in seconds.
These individual graphics can be exported in the standard web formats such as GIF, JPEG, PNG for use on existing websites, or they can be added to any page being created in Web Designer.
Or create custom graphics If you don't find a template to fit the bill, no problem, Web Designer includes comprehensive, intuitive and powerful drawing tools from our award winning illustration software Xara Designer.
So you can create your own graphics from scratch and either add them to the page being created in Web Designer or export them as JPEG, PNGs or GIFs.
Rapid Website Prototyping
Fast prototypes for designers For designers, Web Designer offers unparalleled design freedom. It's perhaps the fastest website prototyping tool around, even for websites created from scratch. As a designer you don't need to know anything about HTML, but you'll have complete freedom to design websites as simple or as complex as you need, with an actual working HTML result, rather than just a 'fake' static mock-up.
Design without compromise You don't need to compromise your design just because this is a webpage.
Web Designer supports transparency, even grad transparency (for graphics, photos and text); it has full, automatic alpha channel support for things like soft shadows, anti-aliasing and semi-transparent objects; and if you include things not supported by HTML (let's say rotated text) it automatically converts them to optimized web graphics.
Web Designer Premium
Flash & GIF animation Web Designer Premium is one of the easiest tools for creating truly efficient Flash animations, which you can export as .swf or add to any page being created in Web Designer.
New: Extra Widgets Web Designer Premium includes a larger selection of Widgets in the Designs Gallery, including the new slick photo and text animation 'eye catcher' Widgets that can help give your website an edge, making them more interesting and dynamic.
Plus Premium includes a selection of e-commerce Widgets and a neat 'embed a website' Widget - perfect for embedding blogs, microsites and other sites within your page.
New: Website and remote presentations With Web Designer Premium you can easily create web-based 'slide-show' style presentations, that your website visitors can step through using the keyboard arrow keys. Plus you can apply animated transition effects as each step and page is displayed.
You can also easily remotely host a web meeting (a 'Webinar') to showcase your presentation, step by step and page by page, to a group of invited participants.
New: animated page and layer transition effects Web Designer Premium makes it easy to add a wide range of animated effects to the layers and page links in your website. You can add animated transitions to any page link or pop-up layer in your web pages.
Advanced graphics tools Web Designer includes many customizable graphic templates of course, and a good set of basic drawing tools, but Premium includes a range of additional graphic creation tools for those who wish to create their own graphics from scratch. These include freehand and quickshape drawing tools, bevel, mould and 3D extrude. Plus additional photo features such as content aware scaling and zooming, and masking.
