What's New in FTM 2017!
Color coding for the rest of us
COLOR CODING FOR THE REST OF US
We hope you'll like our elegantly simple color
coding which makes powerful discoveries possible by allowing up to eight
colors on a single person in your tree. You can start by coloring all
four lines of your Ancestors with a single click, choosing one of the
four-color groups. The first four-color group is the classic one made
famous by Mary Hill.
And then perhaps add a color for a particular
attribute – such as all those who served in the military – by creating a
list in the Index and applying a color to it. Oh yeah, and then SAVING
that list. Testers reported being stunned to discover relationships they
couldn't have guessed in their huge trees. Or finding ancestors with
similar names were not from the same family after all.
What will you discover?
Recovering old faded photos the easy way
Go find your most faded old photos. The first
tool in the FTM 2017 Photo Darkroom series is the Faded Photo Repair
Tool. It does just one thing, as its name implies, but does it
extraordinarily well. It takes faded old black-and-white photos and
makes them look like the day they were first printed. All with just a
few clicks of three repair tools of differing intensity.
If you're the kind that likes to tinker around a
bit, drop down the Advanced Settings to sharpen up your photos with a
few final adjustments using the sliders. The photo below went from
“Before” to “After” with four clicks of the Intensive Repair tool, one
click of the Light Repair one and a drag of the sharpness slider. And
yes, it really is as easy as that.
Organize media with ease
Illustrate your family story with photos,
historical records, and audio and video files.
The easy-to-use tools in Family Tree Maker help
you manage media faster than ever before, as well
as add photos directly from iPhoto®, scan images
directly into your tree, and even create slideshows.
Put your ancestors on the map
Access interactive street and satellite maps to view important locations in your ancestors'
lives and track your family’s migration paths.
Charts & Reports
View and share your discoveries with a
variety of colorful family tree charts, such
as pedigree, descendant, bowtie and fan charts,
and create reports that provide a snapshot of your
family tree and help you plan what to research next.
More options and views let you display an individual's
ancestors, spouses, and children together. Also, the
Index of Individuals Report has been expanded with options
for anniversary, birthday, contact lists, and more.
