Acquire more photos with Yearbook Snap

Written by Elizabeth Braden, CJE

Let’s say students went wild at the school Talent Show for a rock band of four junior girls who only formed their group three months ago. Your staff has photos from the show for the yearbook, but they would like to profile the band and include photos from their practices at home.

That’s possible if you have asked students and parents to use Community Upload to send their photos to the yearbook staff. And now photo submission is even easier with Walsworth’s newest mobile app, Yearbook Snap.

Yearbook Snap is the free app for Community Upload. Students, parents and others in your school community can take photos and quickly submit them during events like the track meet, the debate tournament and while riding a homecoming float, but also at the mall, the amusement park and even practicing with their garage band – anywhere students happen to be.

With Yearbook Snap, your coverage is expanded because you have more photos, plus the photos come from the student or parent perspective. Because it’s easier to submit photos, you have more engagement with your school community.

It’s simple to set up.

1. Turn on Community Upload in Members Only and set up your school’s access code.

2. Tell students and parents the app is available and provide the access 
code using editable PDFs or Customized Marketing posters, fliers, 
events cards and more available at walsworthyearbooks.com/marketing. 
Click on Marketing to Parents or Marketing to Students to see the 
editable PDFs and JPGs.

3. Students and parents download the free app from the App Store or Google Play. They select their school, enter the code and follow directions to upload photos.

Remember, students and parents can find Community Upload at yearbookforever.com, the same website where they can purchase yearbooks and ads. For you, Community Upload has a file management system in Members Only to help you keep track of the photos. This easy-to-use website and app will help you gather more photos for your staff in a snap!
