With the kids all now officially back at school we thought we would share theimagefile’s complete online solution designed specifically for school photographers. 

Most schools nowadays require an online solution for images to be viewed, ordered and purchased. The main reason for this is so that the admin tasks lie with you and not with the school, giving you more control over the process. As we are all in the service industry, we all know that when our customer’s requirements change our workflows must do the same so that our business can cope with today’s clientele and stay up to date and current. For this reason, we have developed the complete online solution for school photographers in collaboration with our partner lab Dadfords. 

One of the great things about this online solution is that it requires no special software, time-consuming setups and expensive licenses. We have removed those hurdles for you. 

With our solution you can: 

  • Use traditional proofing cards designed and printed for you. 
  • Use a password per child, class or school – it’s completely up to you and what suits your customer or business!
  • Set an order cut-off date to encourage highest order values. 
  • Enjoy zero commission on sales with direct payments.
  • And so much more! 

Follow the link to learn more and get started! It’s a really easy and simple way of managing and producing high-quality school photos.


Recently, theimagefile has integrated with the third party software of Desklab Pro and Data Matrix. These two separate applications provide the facility to produce bespoke customer proofing cards and package printing in one desktop programme and to automatically detect 2D Data Matrix barcodes displayed in your image and record the data into the image Exif enabling the production of school data discs (SIMS). You can find out more about these two products from David Dorner at Image Order Services Ltd (IOS) here. 

With the sales options online combined with the services of IOS you have the complete school package.
