Guidelines for camera ready ads:

All pages for the yearbook are submitted to the publisher in PDF files. Camera ready ads should be created using a photo program, not PowerPoint or Microsoft Word. Ads should be saved as jpeg files with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi. Pages should be submitted on a CD, jump drive or email to teares@mail.okaloosa.k12.fl.us. Pages that must be changed are considered to be staff prepared and will be charged the higher rate.

 

Guidelines for staff-prepared ads:

Our yearbook staff will be glad to create your ad for you. Photos may be sent on a disc or you may submit original prints. Photos from phones or taken from the internet (Facebook, etc.) are usually of lesser quality and do not reproduce well.  While we can resize the photo, they often lose quality.  Please do not  send scanned photos, photos printed on paper other than photo paper, or cut the photos. We can crop and resize the photos. Please do not staple, tape, glue, fold or paperclip the photos. Photos will be returned to you.  Layout/design and typography will be chosen by the yearbook staff. Call Mrs. Teare at 833-3300 ext. 2151 or stop by the Media Center to discuss your ad or if you have any questions. E-mail to teares@mail.okaloosa.k12.fl.us.

 

We will not accept photos or pages that include photos of nudes of any age, any appearance of illegal activity, hand gestures, bad taste or anything that is deemed inappropriate for minors. We reserve the right to exclude photos or comments that we feel are inappropriate.
