Adding a Placeholder for Missing Photos in Portrait Auto Flow

It is not uncommon to be missing portrait photos for multiple students. When this happens you can handle it different ways on the portrait pages.

We recommend that you do not use a blank space or a placeholder for a missing photo but rather a text box that lists the names of the students not pictured. This will keep the page uniform while still acknowledging the students who do not have a photo available.

Adding a placeholder where the student's photo should be is another option. Before deciding on this option, take a look at the page examples below.

Here is a side by side view of the same class. On the left page, blank spaces have been created where students' photos are missing. You would need to add a text box for each blank space to add the student's name. On the right page, there are no blank spaces but a text box added after the portraits to list the students who do not have a photo available.

If you decide that you prefer a placeholder we recommend using one that is colorful and fun, such as your school's mascot. Compare the pages below and see how the different options look.

Adding a placeholder image would be just the same as adding a missing students image. You can find instructions on how to do that here: Adding New Photos to Portait Autoflow Sections
