Advanced Page Layout

Flip photos, clip art and design elements horizontally or vertically; or rotate photos, clip art and design elements in 1-degree increments. The choice is yours! Want a photo black and white? Done. Want a photo sepia tone? Done. Pictavo offers powerful tools to adjust the transparency of elements, brightness, contrast, even drop shadows are easy to apply.

One text box can hold multiple type styles and sizes and you can adjust the space between letters, character widths, and the space between lines. Helpful tab stops can be created for designing attractive scoreboards. Pictavo also includes automatic portrait image flows along with hundreds of choices of professionally designed art.

Comprehensive Project Management

Easy management of access rights, process flow and page tracking allows you to focus on what’s really important—helping your students create a great yearbook!
