There are a few good programs that I've come across that are great companions to Xara, that are either free or inexpensive. I'm sure you must have your favourite utilities that you use alongside Xara too. So how about we discuss and share our favourites? Do you have a favourite utility from the Xara Xone shareware archives? or perhaps a favourite program that helps your Xara workflow? Tell us about it!
One of my favourites is Faststone Capture at 19.95 for a lifetime license. I use it for screenshots and for screen recording, it's got lots of settings you can adjust for things and it has a built in video editor (but this editor is very basic), screen magnifier and screen ruler. I've also used it to make screen recordings of Xara presentations in the full screen preview. Faststone puts out a wmv file that can be uploaded to youtube.
