Xara Photo & Graphic Designer 7.1
A versatile and powerful graphics tool

Xara Photo & Graphic Designer (formerly known as Xara Xtreme) is a comprehensive photo editing, web graphics-creating, drawing, graphics design and deskop publishing tool. No need to keep a library of apps for your various graphics needs - Xara Photo & Graphic Designer can handle them all.

Open a photo, for instance, and you can rotate or crop it, tweak colours and brightness, remove red-eye, adjust levels, sharpen or blur the photo. A new Clone tool helps to erase areas in a photo by moving content from another page of the image; the Perspective Correction tool will correct many common perspective problems; and content-aware resizing zooms in on the content you need, while preserving other parts of the photo.

If you'd prefer to get creative, then just open the Designs Gallery and take a look at the some of the possible projects: Flash animations, photo albums, calendars, greetings cards, invitations, brochures, business cards, CD and DVD covers, presentations, animated GIF banners, web site templates, and more. (Please note, only a few of these are included in this trial download. You can see thumbnails of the others, though, which is enough to get a good idea of their design quality.)

Whatever you're creating you'll appreciate the powerful vector drawing tools, 3D extrusions, transparency and blend tools, shadows, bevels, contours and more.

And it's now easier than ever to share your work. Xara Photo & Graphic Designer includes a free website hosting offer from MAGIX, providing up to 500MB of online storage space and your own URL.

Note the above review applied to Photo & Graphic Designer 6. This is the brand new v7 which ships with a whole host of new features, such as a Photo Magic Erase Tool which will remove unwanted objects from photos, 'magic snap' for object alignment, tabbed document windows and lots of new features for web designers. See the What's New information for more detailed v7 new features.

Verdict:

Xara Photo & Graphic Designer is a comprehensive graphics application that comes packed with useful functionality. Interface issues mean it may take a while to find your way around, but there's plenty of help and you'll soon feel at home.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
