No, there is nothing wrong with your monitor! The falling snow effect is one of
dozens of really cool effects available at the new Xara Modules
visitor counter and visitor tracking (get the poop on who is visiting your site!), button bars (if you still haven't mastered Xara's new Nav Bar Tool), Smart Photo, which automatically color
corrects, optimizes and resizes JPEG and GIF photos, banners, a host of awesome JavaFX effects like the snow shown here, and a lot more.
The best part is it's easy. No kidding. Go to the site. Sign up. (It
doesn't cost you a dimeónot that I could determine at any rate). Check out the nifty samples of the different modules. And then upload an image or images into your online personal folder, and do all the tweaking on
Xara's site. The interface couldn't be easier. And when you love the effect you have created, or have selected the perfect module for your site, press a button and Publish the effect.
You will be presented a
one or two line script, which you copy and paste to your HTML document, and when you upload your Web page to your server, the script points to Xara Online and displays your cool effect.
And that is all there
is to it. Try it out and let me know what you think.
