Hello, many of you know me in the TalkGraphics Xara forum by my user name Lord. I'm an an Egyptian and was born in 1960 in Cairo, the
capital of Egypt. I finished my studies as an electrical systems technician in Cairo, and then I worked for a few years in Egypt. in 1987 I moved to the city of Graz in Austria where I now work.
I particularly love Graphics and technical design. I have used nearly all graphics programs.
However I was not able to create a good image with any of these products until in the year 2000 I did a search in Google for vector graphics programs and Xara was among the search results. I tried Xara and now I do most of my work in Xara. As far as I am concerned, there is no another graphics program that can replace Xara.
My second language is German (you can imagine the fun I have in the Xara Conferences, thinking in Egyptian and German and trying to explain
myself in English!). I have the German language version of CorelDRAW, however I have not been able to get the same good results from CorelDRAW that I can get from Xara X.
Much of what I have learned about creating with Xara X, and graphics in general, I have learned from the members of the Xara Conference on
TalkGraphics.com. To all of you who have shared your experience with me, I would like to say, thank you and particularly I would like to thank Gary Priester for editing by text and all the terrific moderators and
members in the Xara Conference from whom I have learned so much.
And now onward with Xara X.
