As you are enjoying your well earned summer break, we need to start planning for next year’s yearbook and the senior portraits for the class of 2023. Seniors have two options for senior portraits: They can either have a photo taken by a photographer of their choice and upload the portrait to www.images.jostens.com, or they can use the portrait they have taken during registration by Lifetouch and the yearbook staff will upload this photo for them.
If a student prefers to upload a senior portrait photo, the photo must be uploaded by October 14, 2022 to www.images.jostens.com with USER ID: 423455954. Plan early and make your photography appointments soon. If a photo is not uploaded by October 14, 2022 then the Lifetouch photo will be used instead. The yearbook staff is responsible for uploading all Lifetouch photos. If a student does not have a Lifetouch photo taken at school, the student will be listed as not pictured at the end of the class of 2023 pages.
Photo consistency is essential to the professional appearance of the senior pages. If you are having a photographer take your photo, please take this letter to your photographer to ensure that your photo meets our specifications. Photos must meet all requirements below:
Photo size: Minimum 2.5 horizontal x 3.5 vertical. Overall portrait shape needs to be vertical format and not horizontal.
Background: NO props, NO hats, NO hands near face and lights highlighting the back of your head. Background scenery is ok.
Head size: Approximately 1.5 inches.
Resolution: Minimum 300 dpi (anything smaller may result in a poor-quality printed image and will not be accepted.)
File format: JPEG file format only. NO TIFFS or PNG files are allowed for senior portraits.
Steps for photo submission: Due by October 14, 2022 and all students are responsible for ensuring their submissions.

Click on upload chosen images in the gray box to complete the process.
You will see a confirmation page and should receive a confirmation email shortly after you submit your photo.
ALL YEARBOOK PHOTOS MUST MEET THESE MANDATORY SPECIFICATIONS. Again, if a senior photo is not submitted on time with the above requirements, the senior photo will be rejected from the yearbook and the Lifetouch photo taken at registration will be used instead. If a Lifetouch photo is not available, this may result in a “not pictured” listing. There will be no exceptions to these rules. Your cooperation and understanding are greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our yearbook adviser, Ashley Blum, firstname.lastname@example.org.
