Xara Photo & Graphic Designer 9 is the perfect choice for all your photo and graphic design work, with powerful photo editing and enhancement features, and truly flexible illustration and design tools.
Here are just some of the reasons why we believe Xara stands out from the competition, making Photo & Graphic Designer a great choice for all your photo and graphic design needs. Photo & Graphic Designer allows you to do amazing things with photos, includes really intuitive vector drawing tools and advanced text handling, all in one seamlessly integrated environment.
Fast, non-destructive photo handling
Photo & Graphic Designer photo handling beats other graphics programs on many fronts. It's much, much faster, produces smaller files and it's non-destructive. It makes the perfect photo composition tool.
Photo & Graphic Designer offers completely non-destructive photo editing (which means you can edit your photo as many times as you like without the loss of quality that is normal in other photo programs), and it uses a fraction of the RAM required by other products. It can handle multiple very high resolution images with ease, even on a modest PC.
Photo & Graphic Designer is also unique in the way it handles and stores photos, which means that files containing photos can be anywhere from 3 to 100 times smaller than with other programs.
Integrated Photo Tool
Photo & Graphic Designer includes a revolutionary integrated, ultra-fast, non-destructive photo editing tool. It offers both manual and automatic real-time photo enhance (brightness and contrast, sharpen/ blur, saturation and temperature) plus real-time scaling and rotation even on 50 Megapixel images. Other features include flexible cropping, red eye removal, advanced levels control, perspective correction, photo erase and masking tools and the innovative content aware scaling and zooming (you can find more on some of these below).
Combine this with features such as vector masking, layer blending, feathering - all in the non-destructive, memory efficient way - and you have something that no other photo tool can provide.
Magic Photo Erase tools
The powerful photo erase tools can produce almost miraculous changes and improvements to your photos!
The Magic Photo Erase tool makes it quick and easy to seamlessly erase unwanted objects from your photo completely.
The Color Select & Erase tool is another powerful tool for photo manipulation. You can erase or make transparent parts of a photo based on a color, or edit just those color-selected areas.
The new Background Erase tool does what it says on the tin, removes the background from your photo so you can place it on a different background.
And then there's the Photo Healing tool which can seamlessly remove spots, blemishes and scratches from your image, or for even larger scale deletions it can be used as a 'paint brush' for the Magic Erase tool.
Perhaps the easiest to use panorama maker. Drop a series of photos on the page, click one button and you'll get a perfect, seamless joined panoramic image.
The Photo Tool includes innovative intelligent image scaling technology that allows 'content aware scaling', which means images can be stretched or squashed while retaining the proportions of important parts of the picture.
This can provide a near miraculous ability to stretch and change the aspect ratio of photos, without apparently distorting the content of the photo.
And there is also 'content aware zooming', which works in a similar way but allows you to resize the object that is the center of interest without increasing the size of the total image.
and much more...
