Supported Image Formats

Memento Yearbook supports jpg and png file types. Generally, jpg should be used for photos and backgrounds. Because png files support transparency, they are used primarily for clipart embellishments. The maximum image file size is 20 megabytes.

If an image fails to upload to a Yearbook or Community album, it may be due to the file size, file type, or if the image is not saved with an sRGB color profile. Note that you cannot change the file name extension to convert an image file from one format to another (eg. do not rename a file from Filename.pdf to Filename.jpg). You’ll need to convert the image by resaving it in an image editing software.

​When asking for images from your school community, request the following to ensure print-quality images:

  • Submit high-resolution JPG files (300 dpi) taken directly on your camera.
  • Do not submit screenshots of photos on your phone. Instead, upload the source image itself.
  • Do not submit images downloaded from websites.
  • Avoid using online collage-makers, as these usually output low-resolution content.

Sorting & Searching Images

Sorting in the Book Manager

In the Yearbook and Community Photo Albums, image file names appear at the bottom left corner of the photo previews.

Viewing and sorting options are accessible via the top right menu options – show or hide filenames, sort images by file name or upload date, and/or change the order in which they are displayed (first to last, last to first).

Sorting & Searching in the Editor

In the Editor, file names show up under each photo within their album. Click on the album menu icon to access viewing and sorting options.

Show or hide file names, show only the photos that you have personally uploaded, sort the photos by file name or upload date, and/or change the order in which they are displayed (first to last, last to first).

In the Editor, use the search box to find particular photos using letters and numbers in their filename. Type into the search box – any photo containing that text in their image file name will appear below the search box.

You may search all albums by using the search option over the top-level album area, or search for photos within a single album.

Used Image Indicator

When an image has been used on a page, it will display a used image indicator in its album in the editor.

The indicator will show the number of times the image appears in the entire book.

Note that the used image indicator will not appear or add another image count when the image is dropped on the page immediately. It will appear when you move to another page.

Moving Images Between Albums

In the book manager, images may be moved from one album to another. Photos uploaded to Community Photo Albums must be transferred to a Yearbook Photo Album to make them accessible in the editor. (Images may not be moved between Community Photo Albums.)

To transfer photos, click into the album containing the photos which need to be moved.

You may choose to Select All the images in the album…

… or select individual images within the album. Hover over an image to checkmark it.

When done selecting the photos, click on Move Photos.

To move the images into a pre-existing Yearbook Album, use the dropdown at the top to select your folder.

If there is no pre-existing Yearbook Album, click on Create New Album.

Type in a new folder name, then click Create Album.

To complete the transfer, click on Move Photos.

The selected images will disappear the current album, and reappear in the selected album.

Renaming an Image

Photos appear with their original file names listed under them.

To edit the name of a photo in the Yearbook or Community Albums, click on its file name, then rename the file to update it.

Deleting an Image

To delete photos, click into the Yearbook or Community album to access them.

If you want to delete all photos in a folder, click on the Select All button in the top menu.

Important: Deleting photos is permanent. Once deleted, there are no means to restore the images – technical support services cannot retrieve deleted images.

To select photos individually, hover over them one at a time, then click its checkmark box in the top left corner to select it.

To remove all selection checkmarks, click on the Select None button in the top menu.

When you have completed selecting photos, click on the Delete Photos button in the top menu.

Confirm your choice – your images will be permanently deleted.

Downloading Images

Editors-in-chief may download photos from Yearbook & Community Albums.

Click into an album containing the photos to be downloaded. Select the photos (as described above) – either selecting photos in the album, or selecting individual photos in the album.

Click Download Photos on the top menu.

A zip archive will download to your computer into your Downloads folder.

To open the zip file on a Windows computer, launch File Explorer, navigate to your Downloads folder, and right-mouse select the file. Choose Extract all. Windows will guide you to create a folder where the images will be available.

On a Mac computer, click the message in the bottom of your web browser. The photos will be extracted into a folder in your Downloads folder. You may also double-click the zip file in the Downloads folder to extract the images, then move the images to your desired location on your computer.

Once the images are downloaded and unzipped, you may open them up in your choice of image editing tool for retouching if need be, then re-upload them for use in your yearbook into a Yearbook Photo Album or the portrait manager should you need to add retake/replacement images for your portrait database.

(Portraits uploaded to the portrait manager may not be downloaded at this time.)
