Right or Wrong? Photoshopped Yearbook Pictures [VIDEO]
Imagine taking your yearbook picture, opening it up to find – Hey! I didn’t wear sleeves.Kids at Wasatch High School in Utah had no idea and some were pretty upset to see that some pictures of girls were altered to show less skin. The worst part? The decisions whether to alter the photos or not weren’t made consistently.
One girl said that it looked like they just put names in a hat and randomly picked girls. Some who wore tank tops were edited, and others weren’t. That actually is what is bothering the girls the most. In one case, two different girls were wearing nearly identical tops, and one photo was altered to add sleeves, while the other was not.
Administrators are defending the editing says that there is a dress code and there was a sign warning them that their pictures may be edited. But the Wasatch County Superintendent did admit that it was wrong not applying the same rules to each student.
“We only apologize in the sense that we want to be more consistent with what we’re trying to do in that sense we can help kids better prepare for their future by knowing how to dress appropriately for things,” said Terry E. Shoemaker, who is the superintendent of schools for the Wasatch County School District.
What do you think? Ridiculous they would add sleeves, or there’s a dress code – stick to it!
