Macromedia xRes 3 box

Macromedia xRes 3 is the third and last major version of the xRes image editing application, released in 1997 by Macromedia. It was also bundled into Macromedia FreeHand Graphics Studio 7.


xRes was discontinued at the end of 1998. Macromedia suggested that users migrate to Fireworks,[1] which adopted some of the features of xRes and Matisse.[2][3]
