We are OUT of the 2017 ERHS Yearbook



Senior Portrait Specifications for Yearbook

Student photos used in the yearbook are provided by Lifetouch, through a contract with District 833. The district requires all students to have photographs taken for their school record and student ID cards. Seniors may submit a photo for use in the yearbook that is taken by an outside photographer. All senior photos must meet the requirements specified below. 

Deadline for submitting senior portraits is November 1, 2017

NEW process for submitting portraits through

*If a senior photo is not submitted, your Lifetouch student picture will be used in the yearbook.

Senior photos must meet the following criteria:

  • JPEG (.jpg) digital image format is required. Please do NOT submit PHG or TIFF files. This is very important!
  • Vertical head and shoulder photos only (no profile photos)
  • Pictures need to be head and shoulders only. No hands and no full- or partial-body poses. 
  • Keep hands and arms lowered and away from your face
  • No props (this includes hats, hoods, animals, cars, or musical instruments)
  • Please keep the photo background simple.
  • Photo must use portrait orientation--not horizontal
  • Photos must be submitted in FULL COLOR. NO sepia or black & white photos.
  • All images should be portrait orientation (no landscape or horizontal images)
  • We do NOT encourage taking prints from your photographer and then scanning them. The quality is usually poor. Ask your photographer submit the electronic image directly.
  • Have your photographer leave enough space around your face to allow for the yearbook staff to feature you at your best within the design. Please sit straight—no dramatic angles.
  • Please avoid pictures with “soft focus” as they appear blurred upon reproduction.
  • Appropriate attire only will be accepted. No hats, hoods, pets, musical instruments, or props.
  • 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 November 1, 2017.

We suggest that you contact a photographer as early as possible to set up an appointment to ensure that you meet the November 1 deadline. No photos will be accepted after November 1, 2017. Students who do not submit a senior portrait will have their Lifetouch portrait included by default.

Photo size requirements for yearbook submission:

  1. Minimum requirement (can be larger) 3.5 inches vertical by 2.5 inches horizontal aspect ratio (300 dpi minimum).
  2. High resolution files for printing purposes.
  3. Larger photos are okay but remember the yearbook staff has the right to crop large photos.
  4. Must be in portrait/vertical orientation.
  5. Please do not email a photo larger than 5 MB.
