Photos taken by United Portraits may be used for your school’s yearbook, website, ID cards, or other administrative items. If you had multiple picture day’s (Fall, Retakes, Spring), your organization will have access to all of these images.
The school yearbook adviser makes all decisions about which photos and names to include in the yearbook. United Portraits provides all photos and names to the school. This includes photos and names from any and all picture days, straight from our system. Your yearbook adviser will choose which pose, and which background to include. Your yearbook adviser will choose how the name appears and if a nickname is used.
We cannot accept or use any other photos for the yearbook. United Portraits does not accept photos directly from the parent or student. The yearbooks that we create and produce use the images provided from the school photographer. This allows for uniformity in all the individual panel page mugs images.
United Portraits does not allow any submittals for individual photos due to copyright release issues as well.
If you are trying to prevent a photo from being included in a yearbook, you will need to contact your school’s yearbook adviser. Our company is not able to remove, delete, or prevent photos from being sent to your school. The school is the one who decides which photos to include/exclude in the yearbook.
If you are trying to make a name change or correction in a yearbook, you will need to contact your school’s yearbook adviser. Our company is not able to make name changes and ensure they will be included in the yearbook. The school is the one who decides how names will appear in the yearbook.
SCHOOL ID CARDS
If your school is doing ID cards (not all schools do) the photos taken by our company will be provided to your school. Your school will decide which photo to print on your ID card. If you have specific requests as to which photo is used, you should reach out to your school. We are not sure if they are able to accommodate using a different photo, as the school is the one who makes decisions regarding all ID Card photos.
If your school has uploaded your photo to the school website, or they want to upload it, your school will have access to all photos that have been taken by our company. Only school administrators can download these photos. We do not choose which photos they will have access to, they will have access to all photos taken. If you have a request for a specific photo to be used, you should ask your school administrator to make sure they download the one you request from our system. Our company does not upload photos to websites, you may need to check with your organization’s IT or Website manager.
