Technical details for XAR file

An XAR file extension is a vector image file format created by the Xara Xtreme program application, developed by Xara Designer Pro. XAR files can contain graphic images, photographs, or web graphics, along with the necessary metadata to support each drawing type, including color palettes, objects, text, and size information. Files of this type were formerly known as Flare files. XAR files are supported in the entire Xara family of applications, including Xara X, Xara Photo & Graphic Designer, and CorelXARA. MAGIX acquired the Xara program in 2007. They then released Xara Xtreme 5 as a successor to MAGIX Xtreme Photo & Graphic Designer. Soon afterward, MAGIX released Xara Photo & Graphic Designer 6, the successor to Xara Xtreme 5. There are three other types of files that use the XAR file extension.
