We have just released Xara Photo & Graphic Designer 10. You can find a summary of What’s New on the Xara site as usual, and more info in Gary Priester’s now traditional First Look on the Xara Xone @ http://xaraxone.magix.net/PGD10/ - but the main things are:
• New shadow & highlight controls in the enhance tool for fixing areas of your photo in deep shadow or bright light, without altering the brightness of the rest of the photo
• A brand new Color Select option in the Enhance tool, a much faster & more intuitive way of enhancing based on color
• The PhotoLooks plugin from Red Giant will be bundled with all copies of v10 (a program in its own right!)
• A new top level Insert menu for quick & easy addition of various useful things to your document, including some new things like Font Awesome symbols
• Some of the improvements you might have heard about from WD10 – SmartShapes, online Content Catalog and improvements in import of Word, RTF and PDF (significant improvements in PDF editability).
You can find a summary on our What’s New page @ http://www.xara.com/photo-graphic-designer/whats-new/, detailed info in our Release Notes @http://xaragroup.magix.net/PGD10releasenotes/. As usual there are discounts for owners of all older versions and a short intro offer for v9 owners.
