FREE trials give you the opportunity to test graphics software to ensure a good fit
with your other programs, and to get a feel for the program before committing hard-
earned money to it.
Some software packages here are "Recommended" because they have proven
themselves. As you navigate the Tactical Graphic Design website you will see many
examples of what can be produced with these packages — particularly Xara Xtreme
in combination with Adobe Photoshop — and Xara Menu Maker for the java menus
that allow you to move around this site!
Smaller, more home-user-type software is available here as well for those of you
who just want to dabble with the odd project. Professional artists, however, will want
to explore the power of Xara software programs
