    Looks more like White Christmas. The loading cursor is just spinning madly. Firefox.

    Sorry Ben, I don't care about the graphic particularly; it is a means to an end for advising some wicked deals.

    Really! WD11P for under 50 quid.
    If I twittered (I know "tweeted)", I'd be singing the joys of BF to all who don't know about Xara.

    Come on TGers, let's promote what we know is a technical marvel and a bargain to boot.

    Server must have been overloaded. Can see it now. I like the graphic and the prices look very tempting.

    I like the graphic, but I would rotate the 30% off sticker so the text leads the viewer's attention into the page rather than out of it.

    My current Xara software: Designer Pro 365 12.6

    I like the graphic but I'm not sure how Frances would rotate the graphic to do what she suggests.

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

    It's a very subtle change but it can a big difference. Whether you are creating an ad for print or for the web you want to direct the readers view towards the the main message of the ad. in my example below the sticker is turned so the peeled portion that naturally catches your attention is facing into the page and thus the viewer is drawn into the copy below and most specifically leads toward where the listing for Designer pro is.
