    Lightbulb Xara Xone Xtras-Free Stuff from previous tutorials

    I cannot believe that I bought a 1.5 TB drive last December, and I have 150 GB free on it: the Xara Xone monthly tutorials are the culprits and I'm backing them off after zipping files (AVI files compress significantly) to 25 GB optical disks.

    But as I was reviewing stuff from the past 20 months, I realized that a lot of things wound up on the cutting room floor as it were, and also I've done some decent-sized graphics that some of our community might like to use in projects.

    So I'm starting the Xtras thread here. Please don't upload anything here: it's only for me to offer content that might attract attention and trafficóthe Big Idea is to create mindshare and interest in the Xara software.

    The reason I'm not locking this thread is because: if you saw something in a tutorial you thought was cool, ask me if I have a large version. If I do, I'll post it. "User requests", sort of.

    To begin: I put up a huge bitmap on YouTube that few will see in its entirety because it's device dependent. The graphic is sort of a Dystopia city with a logo in front, a close-up and a distant view version:

    They're attached and please read the read me file. They're about 2500 p by 1400p, so they'll work as wallpaper and they have a lot of detail.

    More later,

    Enjoy!

    I created a white on white camera to demonstrate something last year.

    The file is 1280 by 720; the Xara Xone tutorials are entry-level 720p HD video files.

    If it comes in useful for personal or commercial work, you're welcome to use it!

    My Best,

    I used this spring image to illustrate shadows a while back in a tutorial. I think it might me interesting wallpaper.

    I like that spring, even thought it's autumn, now!

    Joking aside, I do like it.
    Love the shadows and reflections.

    Not to worry Rik, It'll be spring again some time.

    @ Gare, nice spring, I like it too.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    Thanks to all for the compliments.

    And realize that you probably have seen much of this work in animations from the video tutorials.

    Expect more: I have absolutely no reason not to make this work public after I've used it in a tutorial.

    My Best,

    Gary

    I don't imagine a lot of designers have a pressing need all the time for a porcelain hand pointing, but I did one earlier this year and it's available as an attachment here.

    It's in PNG file format with transparency.

    Handing it all out,

    Here are two seamless tiling textures I used as examples in one of last year's video tutorials:
