Uploading content to your yearbook software

After checking out of the Content Catalog, your selected items will display download links. Click on these links to download the files to your computer.

Alternatively, if you have ordered a large list of items, wait a few minutes and you will receive an email containing one or more zip files bundling your items.

Your downloaded files may include the following:

  • Individual jpg files. Each jpg is a background image.
  • A zip archive containing a collection of .png files. These are clip art files, alphabets or other elements that require transparency around the image. Note that one file will be a snapshot of the entire group – you don’t need to upload this file to your software.
  • A zip archive containing multiple .jpg files. These are coordinated collections of background images.

Opening a .ZIP File

All files packaged inside a .zip archive must be extracted prior to uploading them to your yearbook software. You cannot upload a zip file to any software.

Windows computers: The zip file will often open the extraction tool as soon as the the archive downloads. Simply click on Extract All to create a folder with the same name as the archive in your Downloads area to hold all the contents of the archive. Otherwise, right-mouse select the .zip file in your Downloads folder

Macs & Chromebooks: Double-click the zip archive to extract the contents to a folder of the same name as the archive.

Uploading content to your yearbook

Once all zip files have been extracted, launch your yearbook software, and navigate to your photo collection area. Upload the content to your yearbook software per the directions below.

Generally, you can choose to create a new folder/album to hold your backgrounds and/or clip art (eg. My Backgrounds; My Decorations) or integrate this content into existing photo collections (eg. add specialty backgrounds & decorations for individual sports, events, etc, for use on the same pages at the photo collection).
