If you have the need to create web sites quickly and easily, you should check out Xara Web Designer 10 Premium.
I have been watching this program develop for several years and it just keeps getting better and better.
For those who are not familiar with the program, Xara Web Designer Premium is a WYSISYG web design application that enables you to create a beautiful looking web site in a fraction of the time of coding by hand.
The latest iteration of Designer supports RWD or “Responsive Web Design”. This feature allows the web page you create to automatically adapt to the the screen size of any device used. This is great since most web sites are not only viewed on computers, but tablets and phones as well.
Some of the new features of Xara Web Premium 10 include:
- Improved page transition effects.
- Single-page “supersite” support.
- Insert menu.
- New widgets.
- Content catalog.
- New templates.
- Auto rotate of photos on import.
- Online presentation support.
- Improved Word and PDF import.
- Magix Online World ‘M’ Hosting included free.
Using Xara Web Designer 10 Premium couldn't be any easier. If you are a novice to web design, you can simply use any of the excellent templates from the designs gallery or the online content catalog. If you are an experienced designer, you can start with a new file in a variety of different page sizes.
If you need help learning its features, there is a robust help system plus a library of videos accessible from within the program. This is great and will allow you to get “up to speed” with minimum effort.
In summary, Xara Web Designer Premium 10 is a great WYSIWYG web design solution and an amazing value. The program allows you to produce professional results with a robust feature set and a nice selection of appealing templates. Highly recommended!
