Experience the combination of text layout, graphic design, image optimization, flexible customization and publishing in a single product. Create your own websites, enhance existing ones, or design websites for others! No matter for what occasion – hobby, family, club, school, university, application, or job – Web Designer allows you to quickly and easily create your own website. Simply choose one of the many flexible templates or create your websites from scratch according to your own ideas – no HTML skills required.
New design templates
Choose from a variety of universally customizable example websites and objects created by professional web designers with great attention to detail.
MORE! Use over 30 (including 7 new) complete website designs including subpages and over 500 templates & elements.
Every design includes theme-related and individual templates for web graphics, navigation bars, buttons, banners, photo galleries, text blocks, speech balloons, and numerous other icons and shapes.
NEW! Decide whether the objects should be clipped to the web page edge or be visible on the background.
Every website is unique
Use a slider to change your website’s color scheme harmoniously. So you can create endless color variations from any website template!
The only website creation software which allows you to customize details such as size, colors, shapes and positions easily.
Creative Design Options
Website creation made easy: Design your website and its content according to your wishes. Produce results with the totally intuitive user interface.
You can bring unusual ideas to life: e.g. shadow, transparency, round corners, and more.
- Everything you see in the program corresponds with what you will see on your website. You can even preview your website “offline”.
- Use professional templates to design shapes, graphics, buttons, banners, navigation bars, text boxes and interactive MouseOver & pop-up effects or create custom designs.
- Make your website more attractive and increase its recognition, design your website icons and embed them in your website automatically.“Favicons” are displayed in the address bar, bookmarks, favorites and on the tabs of the Internet browser.
Integrated image optimization
Benefit from integrated, non-destructive image editing functions:
Use rotation, cropping, auto-correction, brightness, contrast, saturation, color temperature, sharpness and panorama montage to make your photos perfect without having to use difficult external image editing programs as is often the case with other website creation programs.
Automatic image size reduction
The automatic output of the included photos in Internet-optimized file size is useful when it comes to publishing websites.
Photos, slideshows, videos & music
Create websites with integrated photo galleries! Show your photos in enlarged pop-ups with effects (e.g. soft shadows, titles, subtitles, darkening of backgrounds) or as an interactive slideshow with “Previous”, “Pause” and “Next” buttons or an integrated photo overview.
Embed videos and multimedia slideshows, e.g. from YouTube or your MAGIX Online Album into your website using drag & drop.
Even videos in MP4 or FLV format can be integrated. The video files are uploaded to the web server when publishing.
Create websites & listen to music: Present songs or podcasts, e.g. with an audio player as a widget provided in the templates gallery. This also allows you to embed music from your MAGIX Online Album.
Ideal for example for band websites.
You can also integrate background music or widgets available for free from your favorite web radio stations.
Select from thousands of dynamic web contents available for free online (“Widgets”, HTML, PHP, Java, Flash...) from different subject areas and embed them in your website easily.
The integrated design gallery contains a large selection of widgets:
Contact forms, visitor counters, Google Maps, e-commerce options, YouTube video players, photo galleries from Flickr, Picasa web albums, MP3 players, chat options, e.g. Skype, current news, and more.
NEW! YouTube video player bar, Facebook integration (e.g. “Like” buttons), Twitter news, and more.
Integrate PDF files, Word documents, MP3s, etc. to offer them for download.
You can also use the download box widgets to add password protection to media, documents and any other files.
Simply move images and graphics to the desired position with the mouse and the text flows around the object automatically. Now even round text flows can be created, which would be very time-consuming with other website creation software.
Special font types
Compared to other website creation programs, you cannot only use default Internet fonts, but also any kind of character set (all installed TrueType fonts).
Design elements that you would otherwise not be able to implement in HTML. Impress others with rotated texts.
NEW! Anchored graphics
Objects can be linked to blocks of text, so that both can be moved together.
The integrated real-time spell checker simplifies working with text.
It couldn’t be easier: Publish your website directly from the program with any FTP-capable hosting partner.
Including automatic output as CSS-optimized and W3C-compiled XHTML source code for display in any current Internet browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera).
Intelligent upload: Only the files that have been changed since the last publish operation will be uploaded. This saves time and increases your productivity.
