Here's something to check out from betanews.com's Mike Williams:
"Equipping a PC to handle all your graphics needs can be a complex and expensive business. You’ll need one application to retouch your photos, another for drawing and illustration, and then there’s web graphics, desktop publishing -- and the list goes on.
If you prefer a simple life, though, you could just grab a copy of Xara Xtreme 5. The program can retouch photos; draw everything from simple business logos to complex technical illustrations; design greetings cards, invitations, calendars and more; and even produce web graphics, simple Flash animations or complete websites without worrying about code. And if you take advantage of our giveaway then you can have your copy, worth $79.99, for free."
