Portrait Database Format (PSPA)

The PSPA format is highly recommended and designed for the purpose of flowing images onto yearbook pages.  However, not everything included in the PSPA format is necessary.  Any CD with the images at 640 x 800 pixels (with 300 DPI) and a tab-delimited text file will work fine provided that it contains the following information:

  • Image File Name (ie. img_1001.jpg or 0100.TIF)
  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Grade
  • Teacher

Be sure to include the file extension in the image file name column (jpg, tif, and png are supported, PDF is not a supported file type).  It is not necessary to include a header row.
