Yearbook adviser imports student and staff lists to Creator Studio™
Students and staff receive an email inviting them to submit a portrait photo.
MyYearbookPhoto assists the photo taker in taking a portrait of the student or staff member.
Photo is added directly into the yearbook for review by the yearbook adviser.
If your school is closed and all students are learning remotely, MyYearbookPhoto is perfect for collecting portraits and making sure every student is represented in the yearbook.
Is the school open to students, but closed to your regular portrait photographer? Set up a At-School Photo Day and use MyYearbookPhoto to take portraits.
Did some students miss Photo Day because of a hybrid model of at-home and at-school learning? Or is your regular portrait photographer unable to come back for reshoots?
Teachers and students are stretched. New challenges arise seemingly every day. With MyYearbookPhoto however, the yearbook just got a whole lot easier. Remember, too, that the yearbook process and the book itself are critical aspects of building and sustaining a school’s culture and community. Let us help you create your yearbook this school year. Capturing the school year is more important than ever!
If you are already using Creator Studio™ to build your yearbook, then go to the People Manager to begin importing your student and staff list. See the Knowledge Base for step-by-step directions. If you are not using Creator Studio™ to build your yearbook, talk to one of our Sales Representatives on how you could use MyYearbookPhoto with another software.
No. Besides the cost of selling and printing your yearbook, there is no cost associated with MyYearbookPhoto.
Talk to one of our Sales Representatives on how you could use MyYearbookPhoto with a software other than Creator Studio™.
Typically, schools use software to organize student and staff information. Contact your school’s secretary for help on exporting a list of the following student and staff information:
The information must be in CSV format to be imported into Creator Studio™.
The request email will be sent to the email address you imported with the student name.
It’s up to you which email address to use. For younger students, we suggest you import the parent’s email address with the student’s name so the invite will go to the parent. If you’d like older students to submit their own photos, then use the student email address.
The following are the Do’s and Don’ts that will be shown to the person taking or uploading the photo with MyYearbookPhoto:
Generally, copyrighted photos should not be used, but parents should consult with their photographer on whether or not they allow the use of the photo in the yearbook. Please be sure the allowed photo follows the guidelines for yearbook portrait photos. See “What are the guidelines for taking a DIY portrait photo?”
Yes. You may add a custom message that will be included in the email invite. You also can add custom guidelines to show before the student or staff member uploads a photo. Custom guidelines might include instructions like, “Remember to wear school colors!”
Yes. Before sending the invite, you’ll set a date by which portraits are needed. You can change this date at any time. The date will be listed in the email invite and on the page where the students and staff upload their photos. We recommend you set this date earlier than your deadline for ordering yearbooks so you have some additional time to review photos and request any reshoots.
MyYearbookPhoto accepts JPG, JPEG, PNG and HEIC photo formats.
