You Asked For It -- 55 NEW Yearbook Backgrounds You're Going To Love!

After launching a new yearbook creation software loaded with ALL NEW coordinating art, we had customers ask, “but what about sports backgrounds?” Good question, friends. What about sports backgrounds? And clubs? And fine arts? We got right back to the drawing board and developed a set of backgrounds sure to cover all the BASES (see what we did there?).

Take a look inside the backgrounds LIBRARY folder. There is a folder called EXTRACURRICULAR.

Inside, you will find a series of backgrounds that cover MANY extracurricular activities! We understand there are always schools that have an interest that we may not know about, so on top of creating as many sports/club/group oriented backgrounds as we could think of, we ALSO added backgrounds that don’t have a specific activity assigned to them, just a playing or performance surface. For instance, in the screenshot below, you’ll see a bevy of grass or turf played sports along with a non-activity-specific grass background (L4B7360) to use alone or in conjunction with another background!

For instance, if I wanted to create a Girls’ Soccer spread, I might use L4B7359 and L4B7360 together to create a starting point for my spread.

Pictavo also has a few lesser-known sets of templates that you can find by searching GENERIC (for high schools or upper grades) or PLAIN & SIMPLE (geared toward elementary and middle schools). These, like all of our other templates, are a great starting point for your layout!

  Templates T4T5814 were used here as a starting point for a yearbook layout.

Once a template is dragged onto a page, you are free to modify as needed to create the perfect layout!

This layout is now ready for images to be uploaded and dragged into photo boxes! If you’re happy with your work of art and think you’d like to use it later, make sure to save it as a template!
