Pictures are the most important part of any yearbook. Upload your own featured images by dragging and dropping them into your “Uploads” folder in Canva. Once uploaded, your images will be saved in that folder, ready to be used again. Use the Grids and Frames tool and experiment with composition through cropping and resizing. Each image can also be enhanced by applying one of Canva’s pre-set filters like Epic, Retro or Cali. Apply one filter across all your images to create consistency in your design.
Or go ahead and edit your image down to its details by using various sliders to control brightness, contrast, tint and more. You can also add effects like X-Process, Blur and Vignette.
Make your senior quotes or photo captions extra-special through beautiful typography. Canva’s text pane includes a variety of features and tools you can use on your design. To get started just click on “Add text” and edit the text box by choosing from over a hundred free, fresh fonts and the full spectrum of hues in the color wheel tool. You can choose from our library of stylish text holders — little drag and drop morsels ready-made typography. From there, it’s a simple matter of changing the text to reflect your quote or caption.
A yearbook is the ultimate practice in teamwork. It takes an entire class to create the memories within it and it’ll take an entire team to finish it. To share an editable design, just click “Share” on the upper right hand corner of your Canva workspace, tick the box that gives others editing access, then send out the generated link. Since Canva works on the Cloud, your teammates can access your design anytime, from any laptop, desktop or even on their iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
