Adding portrait pages to your book


Portrait pages may only be added after importing images and database information into your book.


To add portrait pages to your book, first Check Out your book (Editors-in-Chief and Editors with permission can do this).  Book check out is required to ensure that page order, page deletion and portrait page updates will not negatively affect the work of other team members. 


Warning: No other team member can edit pages when your book is checked out. Be sure to check in as soon as you have finished managing it.


To add one or more portrait pages to your book, click on Add Portrait Pages in any section of your book.

   



The portrait wizard will appear to guide you through the process of selecting which portraits will be added to your book.

   


Portrait page workflow

Portrait pages may be added to a yearbook section as a single group at a time - for instance, the staff page or the graduating class, or may be added as sequential groups - such as a series of homeroom classes or grades. 


Decide on the best strategy for your particular school and your styling intentions, using book sections to keep your portrait pages manageable. If your school has three or more homerooms per grade, we suggest creating one section per grade, so you can easily add in grade-specific candid pages around and between the portrait pages. Keep the Staff page and, if applicable, the Graduating class portrait pages in their own separate section to. You'll be able to more easily style the portrait pages if they are kept in their own book section.


Adding a single group to your book

The portrait wizard displays the available groups in your portrait database in the left side column.  In this case, Grade, Teacher and Department groups are available.


   


To add a single group to your book, scroll through the right-side group list to located it, then checkmark it. Click on the > arrow to move it to the right column. Click on Next Step when the group has been added.


   


Choose a portrait template style - this determines where your label position is added. Click Next Step to continue.

   


A confirmation of your group choice will be presented - if everything is correct, click on Add to book, or go back to the previous step(s) to review.

   


One or more pages will be added to your book using standard formatting.

   



Adding multiple groups to your book

The wizard enables you to place more than one group of portraits into a single section of your book. The groups may be ordered using the wizard before they are placed into your book.

In the portrait page wizard, scroll through the right-side group list to locate your groups, then checkmark them. Click on the > arrow to move them to the right column., then 

click on Next Step when the groups have been added.


   



If required, change the order of the groups by dragging them into position. In this example, the homeroom teacher groups are not in the right order.


   



Choose a portrait template style - this determines where your label position is added on all groups. Click Next Step to continue.

   



A confirmation of your choice will be presented - if everything is correct, click on Add to book, or go back to the previous step(s) to review.

   


The selected groups will appear in your book. Each group will start on a new page, but you may find a single group may extend past a single page if it is large.

   



Next, learn how to customize your panel layout and how to decorate your pages.
