How's it done?
It couldn't be easier, you simply generate your graphics by modifying any
graphic chosen from the wide range of ready-made Webstyle templates
designed by professional artists.
The second important feature is that the templates are vector graphics -
and the advantage of vector graphics is that, unlike bitmaps, they can be
scaled and re-coloured without any loss of quality. And the XARA technology
means that the rendering is super-fast and the output is fully anti-aliased
and dithered for the sharpest possible on-screen result.
Webstyle graphics - quality assured
Webstyle includes an extensive range of ready-made NavBars, animated
banners, 2D and 3D headings, buttons, dividers, bullets and bitmap
textures. There are also complete matching themed sets of graphics.
These images are created by professional designers using Xara X, one of the
most powerful graphics creation tools for Windows. This means that they
have a rich variety of attributes to start with - for example effects
created using graduated transparency, blends, molds and perspective
envelopes, a combination of vector and bitmap images, including text.
The 3D headings were created in Xara3D and have a variety of lighting and
surface attributes as well as a collection of various extrusions, bevel and

palette, using Hex values or RGB/HSV colour models.
The fill texture of an object (if the design has one) or the background can
be changed to any of the selection in the Texture gallery - bitmaps can
also added to the gallery from any external source in order to match the
intended web page background - and they can be recoloured to create a huge
variety of different texture designs.
If the design has a bevel then its depth, profile, contrast and light angle
can be altered. The bevel and depth can be changed for all 3D headings.
High quality soft shadows can be added or removed and you also have control
over the angle, fuzziness, darkness and whether it is a slanted or drop
