Well, not exactly. When proofreading a yearbook, you don’t have to worry so much about grammar and rhetoric as you do about being mindful of what you’ve created. Think about how upset Fred would be if you set his name to Frida’s picture. It just wouldn’t be right.

How free photo sharing sites can help your yearbook project…

How free photo sharing sites can help yournyearbook projectThere are many ways to collect in collage/montage photos for your yearbook - an increasingly popular way is by subscribing to free online ‘photo sharing’ sites such as Facebook, Photobucket, Picasa and Flickr (to name but a few) and setting up collaborative photo albums wherein everyone in your school year is able to drop in yearbook photos. Online collaborative photo albums take away the hassle of emailing content to an individual or set of individuals, enable groups to see one another’s photos, work on the go and socially interact.
