What's new in Designer Pro X10
New Shadow and Highlight Controls
Two great new options within the Photo Tool that give you precise control over specific areas of your photo that are in deep shadow or bright light. Simply use the sliders on the InfoBar to lighten/ darken those areas, without affecting the brightness levels of the rest of the photo.
Select & Enhance Colors
A new Color Select option within the Enhance Photo Tool provides a fast and intuitive way to perform any enhance operation - such as a change of brightness, contrast or color - based on a selected color in your image.
PhotoLooks 2 is a powerful and flexible plug-in (previously sold by Red Giant for $199) that will be bundled with all copies of Designer Pro X10 - and it could change the way you approach color in photography! PhotoLooks includes over 100 presets inspired by real commercial projects, from wedding vignettes to popular cinematic looks. But you can dive deeper by exploring the PhotoLooks tools and their powerful way of manipulating color and light to create your own custom effects. So if you want to capture and intensify the mood of your photo, or add a popular film look from soft lighting to Hollywood drama - then PhotoLooks is the tool you need!
Other Bonus Software
Designer Pro X10 includes two valuable free additions from the MAGIX range:
The Premium version of MAGIX Online Photo Album, free for one year. Share your photos with friends, families and colleagues with an online album (see our example & find out more here)
A free copy of MAGIX Photo Manager, a useful utility for sorting, searching and creating back-ups of your photos
Auto-Rotate of Photos on Import
You might have recently noticed that that your photos were being randomly rotated when you imported them from some modern devices. Where necessary Designer Pro X10 now does an auto detect and rotate to fix this issue.
32 bit plug-in support
The 64 bit version of Designer Pro now supports 32 bit Photoshop and other Live Effect plug-ins.
Web Authoring & Publishing
Responsive Web Design
Put simply you can create multiple variants - eg desktop, tablet, phone - with shared content (eg text, photos, graphics) but with the ability to freely customize the layout of the variants to suit the target device size. The layout of the variants is entirely in your control, ensuring a quality result for mobiles and tablets. Designer Pro exports a single HTML file that can dynamically change from one layout to another depending on the screen size of the viewer.
Example (The new Vue theme with desktop, tablet and mobile variants)
Creating Online Presentations
The new page transitions are a great enhancement for presentations, but there are also a few other minor useability enhancements in the process of creating and viewing steps, plus two new aspect ratio ‘empty’ templates (16x10 widescreen and 4:3 traditional screen).
Scale To Fit
Instead of designing presentation websites for specific screen sizes, the pages will now intelligently and automatically scale to fit any browser size (or you can set them to full-screen). Nb you can use this for websites too, it could be a good option if, like presentations, they are relatively small sites with short pages (might be good with a Supersite for example, so each page would automatically resize to fit the browser window).
Example (a responsive Supersite with transitions, Scale to Fit selected)
MAGIX Online World 'M' hosting included free
Designer Pro X10 includes MAGIX Online World ‘M’ hosting free for one year (worth $1.99 a month). This includes 2GBytes of free web hosting space, one free domain name (e.g. yourname.com or .co.uk or .de etc) and a free web-based email that can be associated with that domain name (5 different mailboxes). Owners of Designer Pro X9 will get a coupon that allows them to extend their free M hosting package for another year.
Single Page Supersites
If you have a small or very focused site and you’re struggling to make it stand out from the crowd, you’re going to love our new concept of souped-up single page sites!
Instead of your website being presented as separate web pages in the traditional way - where you have to click a link to navigate from one page to another - you now have the option to present the whole website as one single, fast scrolling (horizontal or vertical) document using scroll or swipe to navigate. Or you can present pages one at a time in the traditional way, but with our new super-slick animated page transitions (see below), triggered by scroll or swipe gestures or clicks.
The possibilities are endless but examples include event promos, portfolios, teasers for new products, fundraisers, short tutorials or CVs. It’s great for simple single product sites (a font, a template, a car for sale...) and it might be a more eye catching and interactive option than a PDF document (see our menu example). Whatever your application it’s ideally suited to the many users who now browse on tablets (whilst being completely backwards compatible with normal browsers).
New Page Transitions
V10 offers significantly improved page transition effects including 3D effects, which are hardware accelerated, super-smooth and completely flicker free. They’re ideal for presentations, but can also be used with great effect for Supersites.
Password Protected MAGIX Online World Pages
If you publish your website via MAGIX Online World (free MOW hosting is included in all copies of Designer Pro), you can now easily password protect that website. Includes full facilities for managing your authorization list.
Design & Usability Enhancements
Font Awesome Symbols
A quick & easy way to insert symbols from the large and growing Font Awesome selection. The full set is displayed via the Insert menu, simply browse and click on the symbol you require to insert it in your document as a text character or graphic.
An amazingly quick and easy way to create and edit some of the most commonly required shapes – for example speech bubbles, fancy arrows and text panels - with top quality results guaranteed. If you don’t have the time (or skill) to master the drawing tools you’ll no longer need to resort to clipart. Here are some examples from the Smart Shapes library (internet delivered, so more shapes will be added thru the rest of this year) that can be easily customized.
A new top level Insert menu which considerably improves the ease with which you can insert key elements into your document (eg insert new page or insert page number) including some new options eg ‘insert image from Camera’, SmartShapes and Font Awesome symbols.
An online extension of the Designs Gallery offering greatly improved browsing of content, within a resizeable window - especially valuable for web themes.

New social media widgets: Instagram badge, Instagram SnapWidgets (embed your Instagram photos into a website as a photo gallery), Pinterest and LinkedIn badges
