Xara Offers Salvation to Disgruntled Adobe Users

6th June, 2013

Following the widespread unease at Adobe's move to force users to a subscription model, Xara is offering a special discount on their flagship creative design software 'Xara Designer Pro' to disgruntled Adobe users who want to find a suitable alternative.

Xara Designer Pro is often quoted in the press as having features that compare very favourably with Adobe’s Creative Suite applications, being faster, cheaper and easier to learn. Xara Designer Pro is a professional level graphic design tool, that offers integrated tools for illustration, DTP, photo editing and web design in a single package using a fraction of the memory resources of the Adobe Creative Suite of products.

Charles Moir, Managing Director, said: "You can understand from a business income point of view why a subscription revenue is desirable. However, what's good for Adobe, is not necessarily good for their customers. For many users, especially the smaller or independent freelance designer, the cost of a subscription is simply prohibitive. Adobe have upset swathes of users with their new pricing model.

For online services such as hosting, or purely web-based services we agree that a subscription model makes sense. But not for downloaded, installable desktop software.

Xara has always had a loyal enthusiastic customer base, many of them ex-Adobe users, so we're offering a special discounted price, to make it even more attractive for Adobe users to try Xara software.”

Xara Designer Pro is a one-off purchase - no subscription and no obligation to purchase future versions - it's yours to do with as you want, forever. It normally retails for $299, but is offered to registered owners of Adobe software for just $199. In addition to the 30 day no-quibble money back guarantee Xara is offering a free upgrade to the forthcoming Xara Designer Pro X9 due out shortly.
