Introduction

There are plenty of illustration programs out there, but Xara's new Xtreme Pro is different. For starters, it is blazing fast, easy to use, and does much more than illustration. It also doesn't cost too much, and we'll explore some possibilities with the product in this review.

Conclusion

Xara Xtreme Pro has an extensive repertoire, and I know that I'll love to have this program in my system for quick edits and easy-to-create graphics, even though I have those other high end programs installed as well. At this price point, Xara Xtreme Pro will probably pay for itself in one job that you do with it!
