  1. Sue – Second to last paragraph says: “To get your free copy of Xara Photo and Graphic designer go to THIS PAGE…”

    You will see that ‘THIS PAGE’ is capitalized and also a different color (blue). That is the link, click on that.

    Cheers…Jim

  2. Jim twice I downloaded the Xara Photo and Graphic designer and both times it wouldn’t install because of a download error, can you please advise? Pat

  3. Hey Pat – No, sorry mate…no idea. It is a very large download, are you sure the file is being fully downloaded? Full download should be 365MB, so the execute/setup file should be that size on your hard drive. If it is smaller than that, then you have only a partial download.

    If you are on a slow connection and not using a download manager which includes a resume feature, that may be the cause.

    That’s about all I can come up with.

    Cheers…Jim
