Pleasanton, CA (PRWEB) September 14, 2015
Today Pixami announced a major update to its Yearbook Pro yearbook design software for the 2015-16 school year. Now in its fifth year in the yearbook business, Pixami continues to push the envelope with the most advanced, easy-to-use, web-based yearbook software available.
The update contains a wealth of new design features including a set of sophisticated HTML5 editing and layout tools, an enhanced Portrait Wizard for auto-creation of panel pages, and five levels of Undo. Other features include more flexibility in arrangement of yearbook pages, online communication between designers, expanded capabilities for administering school sites, and a host of other major and minor usability and performance improvements. In addition, the new version contains hundreds of new backgrounds and layouts in a variety of design styles, additional fonts, clip art, and a new Elements category with over 2500 new page design elements.
Gary Wood, Pixami’s VP Sales and Marketing, said, “We’re very happy with the success we’ve had in a relatively short period, and we continually push to stay ahead in terms of both features and technology. This new version is no exception, and is the result of everything we’ve learned in the past year, and continue to learn.”
He added, “It’s also important to us that we address the different needs of elementary, middle, and high schools, while maintaining the ease-of-use that we’re known for. This update accomplishes that, with a little bit of everything for everybody. I think all of our current and future customers will be pleased!”
Pixami Yearbook Pro, as a truly web-based solution, runs on all popular browsers on Mac and Windows, plus tablets and other mobile devices running the Apple iOS and Android OS, and Google Chromebook. In addition, this update is fully compatible with the new Windows 10 OS and Edge browser. Pixami feels this flexibility, along with the implementation of HTML5, is a critically important advantage, especially as browser companies move to disable third-party browser plug-ins like Flash and JAVA.
The new version will be available at the end of September, and all Pixami customers will be automatically updated. Based on its success, Pixami substantially lowered its pricing for the 2016 school year, and is actively signing up new customers.
