HJ eShare can help you gather the photos you need from anyone with a smart phone.

Just send the address HJeShare.com and your unique school code out to parents, students and teachers, and soon you will have enlisted an army of photographers.

eShare allows students and parents to snap photos with their phones and upload as many as 10 photos at once to your yearbook account. They are asked to identify the people and describe the photos. With the school code, your students and parents can access eShare at HJeShare.com on a computer or phone, and there’s no storage limit.

eShare can be used by any Herff Jones customer. For eDesign schools, photos transfer directly to your candids library.

More tips and tricks about using EShare

  • Whenever you transfer new photos to eDesign, have your staffers go into your candids library and tag the new photos. Use the eShare Candids filter to identify the images from eShare.
  • Decide ahead of time what specific topics you want your “freelance photographers” to cover. Add those topics to eDesign so that you can quickly tag the photos right after you download them.
  • Come up with monthly photo challenges and promote them to parents, perhaps including a yearbook discount or another incentive to increase participation. Any time you can provide specific requests, you are more likely to get results.
  • Combine your efforts with our Content Creators. If you haven’t seen them, you’re missing out! Download ideas and social media graphics here.
  • Promote eShare using any online platform your parents are using. Does your school have parent Facebook groups or Twitter accounts? How about weekly newsletters? Those are perfect!
