Covered in this month’s Special Preview Edition of Xtreme 5.0 Workbook:

The hits just keep coming. Xara has just announced the release of Xara Xtreme 5.0 and Xtreme 5.0 PRO! In this Special Edition Workbook, your editor, yours truly, will attempt to cover some of the major new features and improvements.

In the Xara Xone: The May Xara Xtreme tutorial is a hybrid stereogram that combines 3 different types of stereograms into one image. Bill Taylor (soquili) has a terrific Guest Tutorial that focuses on creating custom, reusable templates in the new Xara Web Designer. Javier Vila who relatively new to Xara Xtreme (a little over one year, if you can believe that), shows what a fast learner he is. You can see his exceptional art in the June Featured Artist Gallery. Javier’s images are clean, stylish, and inspiring. He’s even inspired Mauricio, his son, to start creating some Xtreme images. Check it out. If you would like to be considered for a single or one of the upcoming group shows, e-mail me and let me know where I can see a few of your images.

I am accepting your contributions (Tips, Brushes, Templates, stuff like that). I’m starting to run out of ideas and could use your input. If your site has Xara graphics and is not listed, send me your link and a brief description of how you have used Xara on your site.

You are probably aware of Xara Xtreme but have you downloaded Xara Xtreme Pro? All the tutorials in this Workbook are done in Xtreme Pro, so if you don’t have it, get it now.
