Many people search for an Online Family Tree Maker to map their genealogy. It is because their families hold primary and central importance in their lives. The family is kept closest to their hearts. They keep them in their thoughts and memories. People continuously look for ways to show their adoration for their loved ones.
Thus, while doing some research for this article, I learned something new. It suddenly occurred to me, in the world of genealogy; there are three types of software: Desktop, Online Tree Sites, and Software plus Online Tree Sites Combination. I ran across an online article that I wish to share. Family Tree Magazine.com wrote the article. I placed three of their tables here; to illustrate all three types of tools they talked about in their article entitled “Online Tree or Genealogy Software? Deciding Where to Keep Your Data.” Their blog provides you with the tools to determine which online tree or family history software is best for you! Check out their post for further details. I found it informative and hope you do also.
So What does Online Family Tree Maker have to with us?
So, what does the above software mentioned have to do with us? Well, we offer a new Desktop Application too although it is not an Online Family Tree Maker. It called, Photo Family Tree Builder. The bottom line is the Photo Family Tree Builder (PFTB) is a new Desktop Family Tree Editor. Sometimes it has called a Graphical User Interface (GUI). It is Desktop software but is not genealogy software either because there is no research involved when using it. It is not like Online Trees, or the Combination Tree and Software cause it does not have huge databases stored online, or integrate with other sites. The PFTB is in a class by itself and the first of its kind. Furthermore, you can use snippets of researched information from other sites; like pictures, names, and dates and use it in the PFTB.
The (PFTB) only let you create stunning and elaborate family trees that are unusual. The family trees imitate real blooming trees. It sets the standard for future family Tree editors of this kind. Furthermore, separates itself from other genealogy software with unique tools within the editor. The benefit to you is, it allows you to customize your family tree down to the last detail. Your Family Tree will appear exactly the way you want it. A framed family tree can be a great way to get a different perspective on your genealogy.
Photo Family Tree Builder: An Interface With An Array of Tools
Also, (PFTB) employs the use of a single interface that brings an entirely new toolset. Like no other, the tools enhance and beautify the look of your family tree. You personalize your one of a kind composition on the canvas, by adding a plethora of elements from the Parts Palette. Also, the Photo Palette let you import photos and edit them. You can import and add background sceneries for the family tree according to your taste. For instance, you can add sunny meadows, blue skies, or setting sun. Add text to a plurality of picture frames. Switch tree types; until you are satisfied with your tree type chosen early on. Finally, you can alter your design until you hit the print button.
Add Photos of Your Liking
PFTB does not restrict the photos that represent family members in the tree like other online family tree maker. You can use the lightweight photo editor. It has a built-in cropping tool within the interface; which let you crop one or more individuals a single picture. The editor also permits some brighten, contrast, saturate and sharpen of photos. Finally, if a family member’s image is not available while making your Tree; you merely use dedicated non-frame to act as a placeholder. Once you locate the individual’s photograph, you can insert it at a later revision.
Easy to Use
While the interface has, a collection of numerous tools that may seem complicated at first. However, you will find the (GUI) easy to use, once you get the hang of it. There is no shortage of easy to understand symbols; representing various family members. These symbols are colorful and graphical which are not present in the online family tree maker. There is a User Manual within the Help Menu of the program. There are also videos on the website to help you understand the App’s functionality and help you learn to create your finished product.

A Comprehensive and Complete View
As you know, most other online family tree maker companies offer charts. Then, there are tons of premade templates recommended by others. Family trees can be gigantic, and so it can be challenging to incorporate everyone in precisely in a die cut templates. With PFTB, however, you can get a complete and comprehensive view through a single, all-inclusive, and aesthetically beautiful looking tree. Your tree will span several generations including the loved ones and connecting them in a logical order.
Change is Natural
Photo Family Tree also takes into account families tend to shrink and expand with time, and so the PFTB accommodates for that as well. Whether you are welcoming; someone new, or if you are saying goodbye to someone. You add a date to commemorate the individual if they have passed away. Likewise, if there is a marriage or a birth in the family, the PFTB has you covered. You can make another tree and include the new revisions to that tree.
