Reviewing within Pixami

The tools described below provde useful ways to help manage your page design process, particularly for team-built books. Note that formal proofing and review of your yearbook occurs on the Studio Source Dashboard. For full details on how to conduct a formal review of your yearbook, check out the article Submitting & Proofing.

Reviewing with a Watermarked PDF

PDF previews may be generated for the cover and/or one or more sections. We recommend generating a single pdf proof for your interior page sections, which can be downloaded to circulate or printed locally at school to provide proofreaders copies of your book to mark up and review.


To generate a pdf preview from your yearbook ladder:

  1. Click PDF Proof at the end of any section on your yearbook ladder.
  2. Click Select All to include all pages in the book, or checkmark individual sections to generate a single pdf for those pages alone
  3. Click OK to generate the pdf. Note that this may take a few minutes.


The pdf opens on a new browser tab, shown as a screen-friendly watermarked proof. While the pdf is not high-resolution and does display a watermark, you may still print it on your local printer should you wish to provide a hard copy proof document to circulate to proofreaders at the school.

Reviewing on the Ladder

Pixami includes tools to help manage pages when the book is being built by a large team, such as teachers working with a group of students. Junior team members may submit their assigned pages to be approved by the Adviser, locking the pages from further changes.
