New release: make your life easier using photo folders

Yearbook feature photo folders

Collecting photos is such a challenge in the yearbook creation process. Don’t worry we got you sorted! Discover an entirely new way to categorize your photos with Fusion Yearbooks.

Content collection is no easy task… First, you need to motivate people to help you. Then, you have to make sure they will send you relevant and usable images (the resolution being a major constraint).

When receiving hundreds of photos from students and teachers, you also need to manage them efficiently. Being able to upload them in batches and to organise them simply becomes an absolute priority to start designing your pages in good conditions. We have streamlined this process in a brand new feature: the photo folders.

In the lines below, you will discover:
> How to create a photo folder and upload one or multiple photos in it
> How to move a photo from a folder to another (if you have uploaded your photos already for example)

Plus a few tips to better organise your folders and save time when collecting your photos.

Start testing the photo folders right away.

TIP: 3 ways to organize your photo folders

Create a folder
per section

Doing so will help you classify your photos easily.  Logic and understandable by everyone, this method will prevent you from unfortunate mistakes. This is the one we recommend.

Create a folder
per photographer
If you have a dedicated team of photographers, you can also have them upload their photos in their own photo folders. This can be a great help if you need to add the photo credits.

Create a folder
per page
For this one, you need to have a clear idea of your book structure before you start. When designing, finding the right photos will be pretty obvious. But keep in mind that your book can evolve during the year so be careful with the naming of your photo folders.

Step 4

All your photos are now in the right place!

    Can you make a folder within a folder? I have so many folders relating to different things and it would make life easier if I could do this.

    • Hey Susan, thanks for your question. Unfortunately, it’s currently not possible to create a folder within a folder. To have fewer folders, my recommendation would be to have one folder per topic, article or section. I’ve forwarded your suggestion to the product team so they can keep it in mind for future developments :)
