Package Helps One Create Web Graphics

CorelXARA combines the power and flexibility of vector and bitmap illustration software in one package. Its anti-aliasing and graduated transparency features are highly suited to the creation of graphics for Web pages or for traditional multimedia presentations. The CD-ROM includes over 10,000 clipart images, 250 textures, 500 photos and 500 TrueType and Type 1 fonts. Images can be saved as JPEG, GIF, interlaced GIF and transparent GIF formats, popularly used in Web pages. Semi or graduated transparencies are assigned to any vector or bitmap object by clicking and dragging. The Infobar changes with the drawing tool selected, providing instant access to all operations and eliminating the need to search through menus. Other highlights of CorelXARA are infinite Undo and 25,000% zoom for detailed work. Corel Corp., Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, (800) 772-6735, W
