Graphic and web designers may be able to accelerate their productivity through innovations in software, such as those that have recently been released by MAGIX.

The software company has announced the launch of two new programs - Xara Xtreme 5 and Web Designer.

Individuals who upgrade their graphic design software to Xara Xtreme 5 may benefit from increased productivity, improved file importing, flash creation capabilities as well as templates for flyer, brochure and website layouts.

Graphic designers will not need HTML or JavaScript experience to use the company''s Web Designer, as its format is similar to presentation software. Using this program, current and prospective graphic designers can create web pages that contain text, graphics, photos, widgets and Flash animation in a simplified format.

Professionals who use this tool will be able to choose from a library of customizable graphics that may be used for headings, navigation buttons, logos, text panels and speech buttons.

Klaus Fischer, a product manager for the company, said "the entire program is graphic-oriented and made to be easy and intuitive."

Similar programs may help graphic design students hone their skills while they pursue higher education in the field.
