You can click the white ‘X’ to remove any photos you don’t want to upload:
When you press ‘Upload’, you’ll be able to see the progress of your photos as they’re added to the online system. A tick will appear to confirm each photo has been uploaded:
Choosing ‘Import from Facebook’ will bring up a box, asking you to connect to your Facebook profile if you haven’t done so already:

Email to Yearbook
Click on ‘Email Photos’ and you’ll be shown a unique @ybm.io email address:
This email address can be used by anyone, so it’s really handy if you want non-members to be able to share their photos (for example, teachers & parents). Clicking the circular arrows will generate a new email address and disable the old one, so be careful doing this unless you let everyone with the old email address know.
To add photos using the email address, copy it into the ‘To’ field in an email, attach the photos (up to 25mb worth), and send the email.
You’ll receive an email shortly after sending them, confirming they’ve been uploaded:
An Editor of the yearbook will then need to approve them before they can be used in the book.
Only the person who uploaded a photo, or an Editor, can delete a photo.
To delete a photo, click its thumbnail to show a larger preview. Above the comment box is an (X) in a circle:
Clicking this will ask you if you’re sure you want to delete it. Click ‘Delete’ to confirm.
