Introducing Photo Books!

TreeRing is super excited to introduce you to Photo Books! These books are personal books and not related to any school yearbook. The school or yearbook editors will not be involved in Photo Books for the school community.

The option for Photo Books can't be disabled by anyone at the school. Chief Editors do have the option to allow Photo Books notifications or disable them. If the notification is turned off it means that your school community will not be made aware of photo books or receive periodic promotional emails.

1. When you as an editor log in you will see this box. You can click outside the box and it will close or click Let's Go to begin creating a Photo Book.
