Our Family Portrait Tutorial holds the magic that comes with extended family photos, all while adding a creative PicsArt flare. Creating your own version of this holiday edit couldn’t be easier. That’s why we broke it down for you, step by step. Here’s how you can create your own Holiday keepsake:

  1. Take a picture of everyone in the portrait individually, holding a frame. Pro tip: try to keep everyone’s fingers outside of the frame to make editing easier.
  2. Select the picture of your oldest family member for the main photo. Add each additional photo and crop them to fit inside each frame.
  3. Switch up the frame to find one that perfectly captures your holiday spirit, and add it to each layer of your family portrait.
  4. Add all of the effects or FLTRs your heart desires.
  5. Save and Share your generation family portrait for all of your social media friends and followers to see!
