Canva is a powerful program, giving you total control over all your design elements. At the same time, its drag and drop interface is so easy to use that even if you’ve never done graphic design before, you can create one with just a few clicks of your mouse.
Upload each family member’s photos by going to the upload pane and finding the right file from your computer then just drag and drop it into your workspace. Don’t forget to use grids or frames to contain and arrange your photos properly! Search through Canva’s immense media library for more illustrations, images and icons to add to your design. Have an official family color? Head over to the color wheel tool to change up the design’s hues.
Why not get some family members involved in making your family tree? Other members of your family may know details about family members you don’t. Share the family tree with them and invite them to edit it with you. It’s as simple as clicking the share button, ticking the right box to give them editing access, then sending them the generated link. Since Canva designs are stored on cloud, whoever you share your designs with can access and edit them from anywhere in the globe, on any computer, laptop, iPhone, iPad or Android device.
When your family tree is done, you’ll want to share it with your whole family. Save the family tree as a PDF, a JPEG or a PNG and allow your whole family to view your creation. You can even share it via email or post it to your social media accounts straight from Canva.
