    Default Dragonfly Poster

    Another member suggested I post this in the Xara gallery proper.
    This is a poster I created in Xara as a gift to my father for Christmas.
    The image was created in Xara at about 40 x 20 inches to achieve the
    detail but the actual poster was printed at about half that size.
    It looked really nice behind glass with an aluminum black frame.

    Thanks Albacore, he was very pleased. This one took longer than any other Xara projects.

    Thanks Gary. It's amazing what you can do with Xara. I'm playing with it right now.

    It's a beautiful poster anyway, but I can imagine the framing really set it off. Well done Mark.

    Lovely job, Mark. The detail on the wings looks marvellous.
