Review Xara Xtreme
Are you looking for a graphic editor that allows you to solve most of your needs when it comes to drawing or retouching an image or photograph? You need to know then that Xara Xtreme is one of the best free tools in the segment. Once you have downloaded this utility on your device, you can count on all the basic functions for modifying images to share via email, uploading them to social networks, etc.
The first thing that will catch your attention about Xara Xtreme is undoubtedly the huge amount of internal tools that it offers, starting from an initial menu full of different utilities you can use at any time. Of course, and like any good photo retouching application, the filters and other modes that automatically modify them are not to be missed.
What kind of actions can I perform on an image thanks to this application? In principle, the most basic ones have to do with improving its appearance through the different functions but to be more specific, we can talk about changing the size of the photographs, eliminating the always annoying red eyes, or why not, adding some complementary effect to improve its aesthetics, such as shadows or transparencies.
But of course, we know that all users with more knowledge in this segment will also want access to more advanced tools, but don't worry because Xara Xtreme will meet your expectations. To give you an idea, this utility will allow you to work using the classic layer system, besides previewing all the results in real-time so that you can see how your work is turning out.
That is to say, at times, Xara Xtreme is a bit different from what we can find in a photo retouching application, offering us other elements more attributable to the creation of montages or presentations. Therefore, an interesting recommendation we wanted to make to those who download and install this platform has to do with reviewing its functions thoroughly because, at times, they are endless.
We were talking about montages, and one of the attractive issues we have come across almost without expecting it is that you can edit several images simultaneously, which means, in other words, that you will be able to create your montages. This is another advantage we can find in this platform compared to similar ones since not all photo retouching services allow you to create montages.
You will see, in turn, that this utility is available in English and not in other languages, something that, in principle, we always regret but, fortunately, in this case, does not tarnish too much the experience of using the program. Indeed, most of the concepts addressed are easy to intuit even if they are in English, and at least we have not wasted too much time with it, so we are sure it will not happen to you either.
Regarding the interface of Xara Xtreme, we find one that does not differ too much from the basic editing programs and even has some visual elements that make us believe that we are still inside an original Microsoft application of Windows. The gray tones, the location of the menus on the top and left side of the screen, and the use of small icons reinforce this original idea.
In any case, Xara Xtreme complies with the basics in this situation, allowing the user to know where each tool is without taking away space from the important thing, which is the image. But remember that we said before that it has a lot of functions, so it is possible that in its first uses, it may take you some time to find a specific one, although in general, they are well distributed.
If we had to point out the aspects we liked the most about this application, we would have to mention that it has many image-retouching tools, from the simplest to the most advanced ones. On the other hand, the possibility of making montages must also be highlighted without losing sight because it is possible to preview the modifications in real time.
On the other hand, however, some issues have not been fully resolved. For example, although the interface is good, and it is possible to know where the main tools are, there are so many of them that it is not a program that we can recommend for those who are anxious or want immediate results. Apart from that, and although it has several filters, perhaps we would have liked to see some more or at least different ones.
**Who should we recommend Xara Xtreme to? Without a doubt, all those users who want to edit or retouch their images or photographs to improve the original ones don't have enough knowledge to use Photoshop. If the Adobe tool is too big for you, but the free programs you have tried do not convince you, this is probably one of those applications you should try sooner rather than later.
