Working with Candid Photos on the Candids Tab
The Candids tab contains all non-portrait photos to be used in your yearbook. These can include candid photos, sports and club photos, etc.
Candids are organized into folders. For each section that you created on the Yearbook page, a corresponding folder was automatically added on the Candids tab. You can add photos for each specific section to these folders, and you can also add your own folders.
