How To Prepare For Photo Day
Prepping for photo day is easy when you keep it simple. Bright, solid colours look great and, in order to look your best, avoid wearing a hat on photo day (at least just for your photo!)
Neat and simple.
Avoid white or light-coloured clothing. Solid, medium and dark colours look best on camera. Busy patterns, stripes, or logos will look distracting.
Glasses + Glare
Glasses are cool.
Glare is not.
Wearing glasses may result in glass glare and/or shadows on the face, and are difficult to retouch. Please consider removing glasses for at least one photo.
Avoid a bad hair day.
Please don't wear a hat on photo day. Hats create shadows as well as "hathead" that does not make for a good picture.
What is a Student Data File?This is a file which is generated by your school administration software, and contains student information such as firstname, lastname, grade, division, and student#.
What is an ASCII file?An ASCII file is another name for a Student Data File (see above). It's a plain-text file, readable by all computer types and operating systems. It does not contain any formatting (ie. boldface, page breaks, etc.) except for carriage returns. "ASCII" (pronounced "ASS-key") stands for American Standard Code for Information Interchange.
Who needs to do this?If you are requesting digital services, it is imperative that we receive information about your students in order for us to identify them. If we do not receive this information, we cannot produce digital services for your school.
When should we do this?We require your data file at least 10 days prior to your photo day. We appreciate that school administrators are extremely busy, particularly in the first weeks of school, but without this data we will not know the identities of the students and will not be able to produce the services that you have requested.
What if not all of the students have registered yet?If we receive a file with "most" of the students, we can work around it by manually adding those students on photo day. If we receive "no" information we cannot create any digital services.
