Journaling not only gives you a way to look back on memories from your past, but it can also help improve your mental health.
With modern technology, you aren’t limited to writing your journal in some kind of diary. You can still write but you can add pictures, voice memos, and other types of entries.
Let’s look at 5 of the best tools for creating a digital yearbook.
FlipHTML5 lets you upload photos, PDFs, and other types of information to add to your online yearbook. You can customize the layout and order of the yearbook to create an animated display.
FlipHTML5 lets you share your yearbook on social networks like Facebook and Twitter once it’s done. There’s no cost to use this digital yearbook maker.
2. Adobe Spark
Adobe Spark offers a free yearbook maker with a wide range of templates and designs. You don’t need any special software or design skills, everything gets done through the Spark website.
You can choose from one of the many templates, customize the layout, colors, and fonts to suit your taste, and share the final product with your friends and family.
Yearbook.com is more along the lines of a traditional high school yearbook. It lets you create a custom design with special pages for different events, activities, friends, or anything else you can think of.
You can also let other people contribute to the yearbook, uploading their own pictures and memories for you to include.
Once you finalize the design, you can have copies printed for everyone included. This can be a great way to make a permanent physical memory of a particular time in your life.
Canva is another great tool for making a digital yearbook online. It comes with a huge selection of templates so you can customize your design however you like.
It’s as simple as dragging and dropping your pictures and other content onto the page and Canva takes care of making everything look great.
Once the design is ready, you can share it with your friends and family. It’s as simple as sending them a link or sharing the link on Facebook, Twitter, etc.
5. Adobe InDesign
The previous four tools are all super easy to use, even for someone who isn’t technologically savvy, but the trade-off is that you don’t have complete control over the layout and design.
If you want to create an entirely custom layout for your yearbook, Adobe InDesign is the ultimate tool. It’s a desktop publishing application that starts with a blank page and lets you design anything you can think of.
This one will take some design skills and some more effort but if you want complete control over your yearbook, it’s hard to beat.
