Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

With the arrival of the 2016-17 school year, Walsworth has added even more content to yearbookhelp.com, continuing to make it the most comprehensive online help resource for yearbook staffs.

Take a look at what’s new in Yearbook Help:

  • Online Design Tips and Tricks – On the Using Online Design page, you will now find instructions on how to use Online Design’s tools to create fun designs and effects, including cut-outs, clipping paths, ghosted photos, torn photos, text on a path and others.
  • New Advisers Field Guide – In the Curriculum section, the newest unit of Walsworth’s Yearbook Suite curriculum – the New Advisers Field Guide to Yearbook – is now available for download. The unit explains everything first-year advisers need to know, as well as how and when to do it, to succeed their first year.
  • Yearbook Today – In this new section, you get short, simple, to-the-point lessons with class activities on a wide variety of topics, including staff management, theme, coverage, design and more.
