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
