Senior Memories Slideshow Photo Requirements Deadline: May 24th, 2020


MAXIMUM 3-4 pictures per person, so no one/group dominates the slide show.


Identify who is in the picture:

  • Include names of all individuals in each picture by either including the names in the file name, or including a list in the email or an attached word document that identifies everyone in each picture you’re submitting. This is really important for large group shots and those awesome baby pictures because we don’t know everyone, and we can’t always tell who you are in your adorable bumble bee or teenage mutant ninja turtle costume.


  • We will NOT accept original photos. Scan them, get them scanned and send them in. Burned CDRom’s that will not be returned to you are acceptable (be sure to include the file listing who’s in each picture). Thumb drives will not be accepted.
