Selfie Portraits – A Solution to Your School Portrait Needs
Written by Jenica Hallman, CJE
This year holds unprecedented challenges for capturing socially distanced yearbook portraits for students in school, learning virtually or doing a hybrid of the two. Walsworth has the solution. We’ve partnered with High5.ID to offer Selfie Portraits, an innovative and simple approach to school portraits if you can’t get your regular portraits taken.
Our Selfie Portraits let you easily host a virtual picture day.
Using a link specific to your school, students can easily take a selfie portrait on their phone or computer webcam. No software or apps need to be installed, and the entire three-step process only takes a few seconds. You can even use these photos for student ID cards.
Portrait quality is in your hands.
Any photos that don’t fit your quality standards can be rejected, and the student can be asked to retake the portrait. Once student photos are submitted and approved, the images and data will be exported as a PSPA file for uploading to your design program. The file will be formatted with all the information needed to flow your portraits just like they came from your regular school photographer. The images can also be used by your school to create school IDs.
It’s easier than ever to get your entire student body in the yearbook with Selfie Portraits! Any school can use our Selfie Portraits system to host a virtual picture day. Visit walsworthyearbooks.com/selfie-portraits to find out more, and talk to your local Walsworth Yearbooks rep.
