Time Flies

Do you ever have one of those Saturdays where you have a lot of work to do so you really dive head-first into a project and when you check on the time you think, “How is it that time of day already?”

Yeah.

That’s kind of been our year.

Times ten.

But guess what? It’s been worth it. While the blog has sat here collecting dust with crickets chirping, we’ve been working hard on improvements to our already industry-leading software, developing even MORE knock-your-socks-off Art Collections and enhancing our Help system and yearbook kit materials to make the job of creating a yearbook not only easy, but FUN.

Over the next few blog posts, we’ll take a look at some of the new Art Collections and how to use existing Pictavo artwork in new and exciting ways. We’re so excited to get back into the swing of sharing the experience of yearbooking with our users we can hardly wait.

For now, here’s a little sneak peek at our four new Art Collections that were designed with Middle School and Junior High users in mind!

Here's a sneak peak of one of our favorite new collections for you to enjoy!
