Picaboo yearbook creator review (and giveaway!)

A few years ago my children and I used Picaboo to make a photo album for my elderly neighbour. He is like a great-grandfather to my children.

I really enjoyed making the book and he loves flipping through the pages remembering all the fun times he has had with my kids.

I was so excited when I was asked to review Picaboo yearbooks to be used as a home school yearbook.  Untitled

As soon as I logged on I noticed the yearbook software was a little more complicated then the straight forward photo album software I had used a few years ago but I still found the yearbook software very user-friendly.

The only time I did get stumped I was able to refer to the video tutorial for help and quickly got my answer.

I choose to do a yearbook that included the past 4 years we have home schooled, instead of a yearbook including only 1 year.

The various page layout choices made it quick, easy and almost effortless to create organized and eye-catching pages. yearbook3

Picaboo offers a ton of options for backgrounds under the photo’s on each page. I chose to simply go with a plain white background under my photo’s and text. I liked the background choices, I just don’t have an eye for choosing one that makes it look good.

Adding text was simple. The software has a built-in spell checker to catch all the typo’s and spelling mistakes. It also has a ton of choices for font style. Its easy to adjust the font size and style.

This program would be great not only for homeschool yearbooks but also for keepsake books for team sports and other clubs.yearbook2

I enjoyed building this yearbook with the kids so much that I will be creating a yearbook again next year. It will make a great keepsake to enjoy.
