Create a layout with Image Size Templates
Before students create a yearbook with student photos, they should create a template like Quintus.
Add the folder with image size templates into your Drive. Click on the arrow and select Add to Drive.
Teachers can share the link with students via a Google Classroom assignment.
Use image size templates to create the yearbook layout before you add photos. The benefit of using image size templates include
- Use the same layout on multiple pages.
- Make images into precise sizes.
Once you have finished the template layout, Duplicate that slide and use Replace image to add your personal photos.
Individual student portraits
My school has over 600 students and a photographer program for individual portraits. However, it is easy for a class to take their pictures with their computers using the image templates shared on this page.
If you need a particular size, just contact me. My dream is that one day Google will provide a resize image add-on, but until then, image templates are an answer.
* Please note that Google Add-ons were born on September 28, 2017. Learn more here. Regardless, image templates allow students to plan out the layout with a specific design.
Now that we have a layout, how do we add yearbook photos?
