Xara 3D allows you to use a texture either as a background or applied to your graphic.
There is a large collection of textures supplied with Xara3D but you can also use any from your own collection.
To apply a texture, go to the color dialog, choose the part of the image you wish to apply the texture to, and check the texture check box. This will allow you to browse through the variety of textures provided and select the texture you wish to be applied to your object.
Alternatively, simply right click on the image or background and select the texture option.
If you wish to use your own background texture, save the image you wish to use as a texture into the Texture folder of Xara3D, or simply drag and drop it on to the image or background.
