Xara Designer Pro 7.1
A one-stop solution for all your drawing and photo design projects

Xara Designer Pro (formerly known as Xara XtremePro) is a versatile application with tools for all your graphics and design needs.

You could simply use the program to edit photos, for instance. Open an image and you can rotate or crop it, optimise brightness and colours at a click, manually tweak levels if you prefer and then sharpen or blur the photo. Support for Photoshop plugins means access to all the effects you'll ever need. And new features include Clone and Perspective Correction tools, while content-aware resizing enables you to zoom in on the subject of a photo, while preserving other parts of the image.

If you'd like an easy way to get creative with your photos, then look no further than the Designs Gallery, which includes templates for greeting's cards, invitations, scrapbooks, certificates, photo albums, CD and DVD covers and labels, brochures, business cards, Flash animations and more. (Only a few of these are available in the trial version, but thumbnail previews of the others provide a good idea of what you're getting.)

Whether you're working on a built-in template, or creating a project from scratch, you'll appreciate the many powerful design tools: vector drawing, 3D extrusions, transparency and blend tools, shadows, bevels, contours and more.

There's a complete WYSIWYG web design tool, allowing you to create complex, multi-page sites with pop-up and mouseover effects, navigation bars and menus (no HTML experience required). Customise these with widgets to add e-commerce, media sharing, social networking and other features, then preview and publish your work in a couple of clicks.

You also get Panorama Studio, a useful tool for creating photo panoramas; multi-core CPU support to improve performance; colour separation and PANTONE colour support; and export options that now include PDF, PDF/X and XPS.

Note the above review applied to Xara Designer Pro 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 Designer Pro is a very powerful graphics and illustration tool. The built-in design templates help you get productive early on,

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.
