Yearbook Life Releases Yearbook Software Pictavo

Yearbook Publishing and Printing Company, YearbookLife, offers a Large Selection of Free Yearbook Publishing Software, including EZBook and Pictavo

(PRWEB) Cooper City, FL.  February 25, 2011 – Yearbook printing and publishing has come a long way since the days when the yearbook staff was required to spend thousands of dollars on high-priced yearbook publishing software to make high-quality yearbooks.  Today, yearbook advisers and their staff have many powerful and low-cost yearbook publishing tools available to make the yearbook design and publishing process more streamlined and user-friendly.

Given our commitment to providing our customers with the largest selection of free yearbook publishing software, YearbookLife,, is excited to announce the launch of PIctavo™ , which is an exciting, intuitive browser-based yearbook software designed to help yearbook staff design, collaborate and create high-quality yearbooks.

Pictavo is a browser-based, yearbook publishing software that provides yearbook advisers and staff with sophisticated design tools, comprehensive project management tools, team collaboration tools, and hundreds of design templates with advanced features for page layout and editing.  Since Pictavo is browser-based and accessible via any internet browser, it can be used anytime of the day or night and at any location that has an internet connection.

 In addition, multiple users can work simultaneously in Pictavo and see each other’s work in real time adding flexibility and ease in collaborating on the yearbook project.  Powerful features, such as built-in Chat, help advisers keep the yearbook on track, and virtual sticky notes help them communicate and track requests or changes. The ability to send electronic pages to others via PDF or web link makes it easier to keep others informed and request their approval.

Pictavo offers powerful yearbook design tools that make it easy for anyone on the yearbook staff to design a professional looking yearbook – from start to finish.  Pictavo users have access to an extensive creative library that contains hundreds of templates, backgrounds, typestyles and art, all professionally designed for school yearbooks.  Or, they can create their own custom designs.

Pictavo helps advisers manage their staff and the yearbook timeline with a comprehensive project management function that gives yearbook advisers the ability to assign specific permissions to individuals and groups.  Detailed permission levels mean advisers can be assured that staff members only have access to the features they need. Powerful reports and the Pictavo Dashboard give advisers views of their entire book to make sure everyone stays on track and their books arrive on time.

“YearbookLife is excited to offer Pictavo to elementary, middle and high schools that are searching for a powerful comprehensive browser-based yearbook publishing software to make the process of creating high-quality yearbooks that much easier.” said John Platts, President of YearbookLife.  “We’re always looking for ways to make the yearbook process more efficient for our customers and are confident the Pictavo yearbook software will accomplish that goal.”
