Family ChArtist--Adding Pictures

So today I'm going to give you some ideas on how to add pictures. Thanks to Erin, for helping me out with some samples today. You get to see another person's family for a while. And Erin always comes up with great ideas that I never would have thought of.
On this first one she has the baby pictures of the couple who started it all, and then a modern picture of their family
On this one she offset the focus person, and then put the family on the bottom again. Sweet and simple with that beautiful font.
On these she's added pictures of the main person in the center of a left to right chart.
With the hints I gave you the other day about sizing and shaping the layout of the genealogy chart, there are lots of things you can do Besides adding pictures of embellishments, you can add pictures as backgrounds. Like we talked about earlier, you can set the transparency to focus more on the picture, or more on the genealogy information. And then of course you can do a genealogy chart with no genealogy at all. This one has a timeline of the husband and wife on the top, the wedding picture and then pictures of the family and children below.
And combining pictures with the backgrounds you can come up with beautiful things too.
I've so enjoyed seeing what the testers have come up with. They've come up with beautiful designs I never would have thought of. I can't wait to see what you come up with too.
