Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) August 13, 2015
For many students and school staff, the end of summer marks the start of classes and a chance for a fresh start to the school year. There is a hope for academic success and an excitement in the anticipation of new friendships. To help students achieve these goals, school staff members, and parents, begin to research programs which would stimulate the development of children’s intellect as well as their interpersonal skills. At Entourage Yearbooks, a company which is leading the industry in the trend to integrate digital and printed content to create next generation yearbook media, preparations for the new school year have been made as well. The web development team at Entourage Yearbooks is pleased to announce that their new online design software, EDOnline 6.0, will be released at the end of August 2015.
Drawing inspiration from suggestions made by customers during the user experience survey, the web development team has added features which enable increased control and assurance in the precision of designs. According to Nicole Lipnitz, web development team leader, one of the most exciting updates is the simplification of the photo placement process through the creation of a “Click-to-Click” option. Rather than clicking and dragging photos, yearbook designers simply need to click on a photo to select and click on a photo frame to place. Unique backgrounds, using personal photos, are also just a click away with the “background” button. Of course, there are still hundreds of new pre-made backgrounds and graphics which are available to users of EDOnline 6.0. However, the background button provides designers the assurance that their personalized photo-background will fit the page perfectly. Another innovative addition is the clipping tool. This would allow designers to select an element in a photo, such as the outline of a person, and then remove the background around the selected element. According to Kristen Kelly, of the web development team, the clipping tool requires just a couple clicks and is really easy to use.
Yearbook advisors will also find that the new version of Entourage’s design software has a layout which is sleek and more user-friendly. Users of EDOnline 6.0 will first notice that only one designer is needed to create covers, pages, and end-sheets. Templates, photos, and graphics can now be accessed from the side scroll-bar. This is an important development because the entire design space can be seen while selecting elements for placement. Even the text tools are easier to find and use. After choosing text options in the scroll-bar, users will have the ability to spell-check as well as make text bold, italic, or underlined. The text style option opens a separate scrolling window which lists the text style choices and the characters in the style names appear as they would after the style has been chosen. From there, text can be added to wrap around, or inside of, various shapes.
Although many of the updates have been mentioned, there are many more features available to users of Entourage’s EDOnline 6.0 design software. Contact Entourage Yearbooks to learn more about how they can help make your design a reality.
