More than most books, yearbooks and sports books have a large number of photos. Those photos, especially in sports books, can come from numerous sources, making it difficult to ensure that all photos looks similar. Some might be light, some might be dark. Some might be high resolutions, some might be low. Although it will take extra time, you should check every photo for the following: 1. Is the resolution at least 300 dpi?
Even if you are starting with 300 dpi, if you enlarge the photo, you will reduce the resolution. 2. Take an overall look at the photo and determine if it needs to be lightened or darkened so that it looks similar to other photos in the book. 3. Make sure that the photo is in a CMYK (cyan-magenta-yellow-black) color format. If it is RGB (red-green-blue) color format, you will want to convert the photo yourself to CMYK. If you let the printing machines make the conversion, you may get unintended color shifts in the photos.
Many yearbook printing online projects have advertisements from sponsors, which brings on a whole host of problems. Even if you give the advertisers specific directions specifying the size of the advertisements and resolution of the ad, you are bound to get all kinds of weird things. Ads that are way too small or way too large and whose dimensions will never fit the allotted space. Pictures of advertisements that appeared somewhere else, with terrible resolution. Handwritten ads that you are supposed to magically turn into gorgeous ads. Sponsors turning in these atrocious ads well after the deadline.
The best advice we can give is set a really early deadline for these ads, so you will have time to go back to the sponsors and get new ads if needed. Have some borders ready that go with the overall theme of your book. That way, if an ad doesn’t fill the space correctly, you can put a border behind the ad so there isn’t a lot of white space showing.
