Senior Portrait Specifications for 2023 Graduates
Process for submitting portraits through https://images.jostens.com/
Senior portraits that do not meet yearbook specifications or are submitted after deadline date will not be published. We can only accept vertical portraits in a JPEG file format. We have a set policy regarding the submission of senior pictures:
- JPEG (.jpg) digital image format is required.
- 300 DPI or higher for actual size of photo. (In other words, we need high resolution image files for printing purposes)
- All pictures must be submitted in full color (no sepia or black-and-white)
- Pictures need to be a head and shoulder only format. Please no full body or partial body poses.
- Vertical portraits only.
- Have your photographer leave enough space around your face to allow for the yearbook staff to feature you at your best within the design.
- Note: pictures with “soft focus” appear blurred upon reproduction.
- Appropriate attire only will be accepted...no hats, pets, or other accessories/props, sport attire/uniforms.
- The yearbook staff has the right to request a different photograph if the above guidelines are not met.
Seniors may select the photographer of their choice provided the yearbook portrait photograph conforms to the above standards and the photograph is received on/or before October 28, 2022. Students who do not submit a senior portrait will have their school portrait included by default if available. We suggest that you contact a photographer as early as possible to set up an appointment. The earlier we receive your portrait, the better. A list of photographers can be found on our website. It is highly suggested that you discuss the submission procedures with your photographer, as many photography studios send us photos in batches. Photographers need to be spell student names correctly, the name inputted when the photo is uploaded is the spelling that will be printed under the photo.

Michelle Jacklitch, Adviser
As the yearbook adviser, I am the teacher and mentor for the yearbook editors and staff in the yearbook class. This year yearbook meets during 3rd block all year.
It is my job to track the progress of the editors as well as the staffers to ensure that deadlines are met with accuracy. I've established a system of evaluating editors and staff members on assignments and oversee the business side of the yearbook project. After each deadline, I am in charge of contacting our Josten's Publishing representative, Sherri Loney, and publishing our final pages.
Deadlines are extremely important, so I am very strict with these. The editorial board is in charge on a daily basis as they develop into the primary leaders within the cross-functional yearbook team. I serve as a liaison between the WHS administration, Sherri Loney, our Brandy Wathke (Josten's plant consultant), and staff members. I am also in charge of maintaining the yearbook budget, ensuring that all cost estimates, yearbook sales, and changes are kept within our allocated funds (the yearbook creation process is expensive!).
I look forward to a new group of yearbook staffers each semester and find the yearbook editorial board to be a huge asset to our program. I can assure that if you're interested in yearbook, you'll have an enjoyable time, as long as you're not afraid to work hard, have the ability to stay organized, and have the ability to establish a sense of pride for the book. It is a very rewarding experience to be a part of as we publish one of the best yearbook publications in Minnesota!
Feel free to contact me if you'd like more information, please contact me at Michelle.Jacklitch@wayzataschools.org.
