A Dramatic Letter

This month brings you the first Xara Xtreme tutorial in which we, actually you, I have already done it, will create a hand addressed envelop with a stamp and with post office cancellation and a postal code bar code. While it is pretty involved, and there are about 29 steps, most users, even new users should be able to get through it. And because many of you are first time users, I have tried to explain each step with as much detail as possible. If you do get stuck, or something does not work the way it does in the tutorial, you can use the feedback form on Page 12 to write to me.

The animation above was created with Xara Modules Magnifyinf Lens Effect which let's you see some of the details in this month's final image. Xara makes this site possible so it would be nice if you just went to the page and had a look see. Thanks.

New Xara Xtreme at a New Price!
