    Photo Submission Guidelines
    •Do not cut, glue or tape photos; photos do not neccessarily have to be studio senior pictures. They can be snapshots.
    •Care will be taken to return photos when you pick up the yearbook. However, copy prints should be submitted for irreplaceable photos. The school, yearbook staff or yearbook company do not accept responsibility for lost or damaged photos.
    •Photos will be enlarged and reduced on the computer to fit the layout. DO NOT CUT PHOTOS. We will crop the photos on the computer.
    •Photos will be returned in April if a stamped envelope is provided. Otherwise, they will be returned with the yearbook. Seniors, remember that it is your responsibility to pick up your yearbook in September. They will not be mailed unless you pay an extra $15 for postage.
    •If you are emailing photos or turning them in on a cd, you must use .jpg files with a resolution of 300 dpi. If you email your photos and message, you must still complete the order form and mail it in with your payment and contact information. Please check the box one the order form that indicates that your files have been emailed and how many pictures we should have received.
    Special Considerations
    •The yearbook staff reserves the right to reject photos or text or ask the customer to make changes to conform to the staff’s standards.
    •To make the yearbook look more uniform, the staff uses a standard font on all ads. You may pre-design your ad or the staff will be happy to design it for you.
    •Please make sure the photos are even and do not have rough edges.
