Xara Web Designer Premium 10.0
Create stylish, feature-packed websites, no HTML experience required

Xara Web Designer Premium 10 is a template-based design tool which makes it quick and easy to create quality websites.

Browse the program's Content Gallery (an expanded online version of the old Designs Gallery), for instance, and you'll find hundreds of professionally-produced web page designs, and even complete multipage sites, all ready for immediate use.

Any of these can be customised with your own choice of navigation bars, headings, buttons, bullets, photos, icons, and a huge clipart collection. Interactive widgets help you to embed YouTube videos, Facebook or Twitter buttons, photo slideshows, media players, contact forms, PayPal buttons, news headlines, Google Maps and more. Just choose the object you need, drag and drop it onto the page and customise it as required.

Amazing graphics support means you're able to import images in all kinds of formats (PSD, RAW, SVG, PDF), then crop, tweak and adjust them, inside the program. A powerful built-in vector editor creates custom web objects with soft shadows, transparency and feathering. You can even create Flash animations and position them anywhere on the page.

The text options provide just as much control. You get to choose from 600+ Google Fonts; if that's not enough, you can embed preferred fonts in your site, ensuring they're always safe to use; text automatically flows around any irregular shapes, and you can rotate it - even full text columns - to whatever angle you like.

New features start with a Responsive Web Design option. You're now able to create variations of your page for different devices (desktop, tablet, phone). Each variant can share content, but the layout will be different. Web Designer Premium 10 exports the finished result as a single HTML file, and it'll then automatically adjust depending on the screen size of the viewer.

Supersites are a new way to create small, tightly focused sites. Our favourites look like presentations, with new page transitions (example), but you can also present all your site pages as a single scrolling document, perfect for browsing in just a few swipes (example).

SmartShapes provide a quick and easy way to draw and edit common graphical objects: arrows, text panels, speech bubbles and so on.

The Online Content Catalog helps you browse available content. There's 2GB of free hosting space at MAGIX Online World (now with a password-protect option). And you get 10 extra web themes, some flicker-free page transitions, and new widgets for Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest and more.

Verdict:

Xara Web Designer Premium 10 is an excellent WYSIWYG website builder, packed with powerful features and functionality yet also easy enough for just about anyone to use.

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.
