9780071625593: Xara Xtreme 5: The Official Guide

Master the world's fastest drawing program!

Learn the principles of vector drawing as you learn technique, composition, and other art essentials--then apply your skills to creating websites, animations, logos, photographic retouches, and more. Xara Xtreme 5: The Official Guide shows you how to customize the software, use QuickShapes, draw vector paths, use fills for photorealistic effects, and compose professional desktop publishing documents. This hands-on resource brings you from concept to completion with examples that span a range of art styles--using the vector drawing program that thinks it's a bitmap editor. With these tutorials that apply to Xara Xtreme, Xtreme Pro, and Magix Xtreme Photo & Graphic Designer, you'll:

  • Work with vector paths that look like paint strokes
  • Tag colors to dramatically change complex drawings in seconds
  • Build multi-page, graphically rich websites in a few hours
  • Convert bitmap web graphics to resizable vector shapes
  • Design artwork in minutes that looks like it took days
  • Create and export original Flash animations for the web in no time
  • Create 3D text and apply special effects to imported photos and vector shapes
  • Invisibly retouch photographs with feathering, fractal fills, multi-step gradients, and transparencies

Inside you'll find an inspirational Xara GrandMasters Gallery of award-winning artwork from around the world. Get started today by downloading free trial software from www.xara.com!
