Xara Web Designer is unlike any web editor you will have seen before. An easy template based solution that gives you total page design freedom, no HTML skills required. Xara 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 Xara Web Designer. For example text with curved edges, text or graphics at an angle, text flowing around objects – no problem!
Working with industry standards is vital, so Xara Web Designer sites are W3C compliant, cross browser compatible (IE, 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.
Whether you customize one of the bundled templates or create your own graphics or animations, it’s genuinely WYSIWYG – what you see in Xara Web Designer is exactly what you get on your website.
The Premium Edition offers all the features and templates of Web Designer, plus it adds extra features aimed at professional and commercial web designers including Flash animation, extra Widgets for e-commerce and animated product showcases, support for online presentations and Webinars, and additional graphic design tools.
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. 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.
The 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!
