Leaded Glass Revisited
Nicole, a new member to the Xara X1 Conference, requested help creating a stained glass (more accurately Leaded Glass) effect. And while I have covered this in the past, I thought it would be fun to revisit this technique and
see in what ways the task is now easier. Stained Glass, for the record, refers to the application of colors fired onto glass such as you might see in church windows and is more like painting on glass. Leaded glass, refers to a
process (one of several) of using strips of channeled lead to hold pieces of colored glass together. Leaded glass windows can contain stained glass panels as well.
The animation above was created with Xara Modules Cross Fade Effect. Xara makes this site possible so it would be nice if you just went to
the page and had a look see. Thanks.
Xara X¹ is Here!!!
A great place to start investigating the new version is the Xara X forum on TalkGraphics where the big chief from Xara kicks off the X¹ thread with a very detailed account of what's new.
For the main course, check out the new Xara site at xara.com/xarax (the whole site has a complete makeover to
celebrate the X¹ launch), where you can download the free 15 day trial of Xara X¹ plus there's a summary of ¹ what's new in Xara X. The demo movies are proving very popular and it's our intention to regularly release new ones - you can already find the
first of these in our updated feature tour - take a look at the great photo composition movie in the Photo Handling topic.
Edition 25 of The Xara Xone WebXealot Workbook brings you
further news on the release you've all been waiting for. You'll find Gary's angel on the new and improved features, a Rosetta Stone of the new vs the old buttons and icons, a preview of the new Xara Picture Editor that's included in X¹ and a look at some of the new print related features. You can purchase at any time by simply clicking the Buy Now link on the
