New Photo Sharing Options for Parents & Students Enhance Yearbook Coverage

“Students and families lead such mobile-oriented lifestyles. Image Share makes it easy to capture what’s happening anywhere and quickly share it."

This week, Balfour introduced Image Share, a community photo app for yearbooks. Image Share, available for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, allows students, parents and faculty in the school community to contribute content for the yearbook directly from their mobile devices.

Yearbook advisers and staffs capture and preserve the unique stories and events of the school year. Image Share allows the school community to assist by contributing yearbook content using state-of-the-art mobile technology. Images can be uploaded in a few taps with the option to use an existing photo or one taken with the app itself. Contributor information, subject names and a caption can be added for each photo to streamline the yearbook staff’s work. Uploaded content is delivered to a secure yearbook site where it can be approved and organized by the adviser.

“We are excited to introduce a tool that both streamlines our customers’ work and involves the school community in such an important project as the yearbook,” Divakar Jandhyala, Chief Technology Officer for Balfour said. “Because students and families lead such mobile-oriented lifestyles, Image Share makes it easy to capture what’s happening anywhere and quickly share it with the people that can include it in the official publication of the school year.”

"Balfour continues to make my job easier. The Image Share app gives my students the opportunity to capture those unexpected moments,” Kim Barnes, Yearbook Adviser at Southeastern High School said. “They don't always have the yearbook camera, but they DO have their phones. It’s sharing made simple."
