Expression Design Resources

Expression Design 2 Icon Following on from my post about the Expression family, I said I’d follow up with some more details on Expression Design. Someone commented on my other post that Expression Design is “too basic” and I suppose for many people that will be a fair criticism. For someone like me, who’s not a graphic designer, I find it strikes a good balance between functionality and complexity (and I use some other tools to achieve things Design is not so suited to such as manipulating bitmap images – Paint.NET is great for this). It also comes in a range of attractive colours. Anyway, I’ve done a bit of a trawl to find learning resources for Expression Design.

Finding out about what it does and the basics of the UI
  • Follow the “Video Feature Tour” link at the Expression Design Homepage (Silverlight required)
  • There’s a more detailed demo video on the same page (“In-Depth Demo”) which covers a tour of the UI, XAML Exporting and Slicing

    I’d still say it. Design looks like the ugly stepchild of the lot. Not many ppl seem to be happy about an incomplete suite. See
