Video: Utah School Photoshops Yearbook Pics Without Permission

Posted By on Thu, May 29, 2014 at 9:58 AM

A Utah high school has taken photoshopping to a new, and pretty controversial, level.

KSTU-TV reports that some female students at Wasatch High School, southeast of Salt Lake City, were surprised to learn that the school had altered their yearbook photos to show less skin, without telling them about it. Officials at the school made the decision to make the girls appear as though they were wearing higher necklines and longer sleeves.

"They didn't tell you before they edited it," sophomore Shelby Baum told KSTU. "They didn't give you an option to fix it—so you look funny in your yearbook picture."

KSTU also reports that the editing appeared to be random—only some of the photos were altered, while others remained untouched.

Meanwhile, school officials are undeterred.

"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 the superintendent of the public school district.
