Yearbook Images

  • Image Path - Choose a shared folder on the server where all the organization yearbook folders will go.

  • Folder Name Option - Choose options for naming the yearbook folder.

  • Grad Year Option - Choose whether or not the software should create a subfolder for the graduation year and decide whether it should come before or after the organization folder.

  • Image Name Option - Choose how you want the yearbook images renamed when copied to the yearbook images folder. Options include client number, student ID, and a combination of first and last names. Note: This is the default that will be used when renaming yearbook images. If a different naming convention is chosen for a specific organization in Maintenance > Client > Organizations, that setting will override the default you've set up here.

    Here's an example of how your folder structure might look:

Composite Template

Choose a default composite template to use for sizing and cropping all yearbook images. A yearbook image will be automatically opened with this template when Prepare is started from the Organization tab of a session. The default template selected here will be used for all yearbook images unless an alternate template is chosen at the organization level for one or more individual organizations. Choose an organization level template on the Yearbook Options tab in Maintenance > Client > Organizations (see Organizations). Design your own cropping templates in Maintenance > Tools > Design Tools > Digital Template Builder (see Designing Composite Templates).
