Your Senior Portrait

We highly recommend (but do not require) that you have a professional take your senior portrait. Selfies and pictures from social media accounts are not allowed, due to low resolution resulting in pixelated and blurry pictures. You have the option of using your Lifetouch school picture, taken by a professional photographer at the beginning of the school year. (If you do not submit a photo or your photo does not meet the yearbook specifications below, the Lifetouch photo will be used.

 

Photo Specifications (Please share with your professional photographer!)

Senior pictures should adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Head and shoulder shots only (that is all that will appear in yearbook). No full-body shots. (Submissions may be cropped to create uniformity of head shots.)
  • Must be vertical shots in full color with no extreme close-up face shots.
  • At Least 2.25” wide by 3” height (larger is better).
  • Head size (top of hair to bottom of chin) should be approximately 1/3-1/2 of the picture. Do not cut the head off at the top of the photo
  • Digital File Format JPEG or JPG 300 dpi resolution or higher. This file size is often 500 Kb or higher. Color: RGB (Red-Green-Blue) format.

 

Submitting Your Senior Photo-due no later than November 7, 2019

Senior photos are submitted online directly by you or your photographer to the Jostens yearbook website at:
https://images.jostens.com/ 413373683. Please do not scan photos—this results in poor quality. Submit a photo file or ask your photographer to do it for you. IMPORTANT! Please label each submission in the following format: Last name, first name, middle initial. Jpg (Example Smith, JohnD.jpg).
Please also email your senior photo to Ms. Santora at school: ssantora@cal-mum.org. Your photo is used in our end of year commemorative Senior Class edition of the Cal-Mum Chronicle. Same rules apply as outlined below.
