A few weeks ago I posted the press release announcing Xara Designer Pro X9 Now Available. One of the things to remember about Xara Designer Pro X9 is that it combines the feature sets of several other Xara products. So I’ll also refer you back to reviews I’ve done of each of the individual Xara products as the information in those reviews will also apply to Xara Designer Pro X9. Those reviews: Xara Page & Layout Designer Affordable Choice For Page Layout, Review of Xara Photo & Graphics Designer v9 and Xara Web Designer 9 Review and Press Release.
As you look through the previous reviews, you’ll notice each of the products does a good job of covering an important area of design. Xara Designer Pro X9 combines all those design tasks and integrates them in a single piece of software. This means you won’t have to switch to different software as often to get the job done. Along with the variety of design tasks, you’ll find a big library of templates that you can customize to quickly get exactly what you need.
For those who need to design and have a limited budget, Xara Designer Pro X9 is an affordable alternative compared with other high-end vector illustration packages. Unlike its higher-priced competition, it also does a good job of creating Web pages. Included templates are more than just a piece of clip art, they are well-designed and easy to customize for your needs.
If you are already using a different tool, you might find Xara Designer Pro X9 to be a worthy addition to your design arsenal. Over time you’ll likely find you use it more often as it allows you to get the job done faster. Not sure if it is the right tool for you? Download the free trial and take it for a test drive!
