WEB DESIGNER 7 Product Details
Xara Web Designer is unlike any web design software you will have seen before; an easy template based solution that gives you total page design freedom, no HTML skills required. Comes in 2 versions, Web Designer and Web Designer Premium; Premium offers advanced web design features.
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.
There's no easier solution
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!
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!
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.
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.
For extra impact, adding mouseover effects, thumbnails and pop-ups is simple.
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.
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.
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.
