Utah students upset that yearbook photos were edited

Posted: Updated:
Students at a Utah high school are upset over changes made to their yearbook photos.

Their pictures were edited to show less skin and the school district is now apologizing for the alterations but say they wish they'd made more changes.

Shelby balm and her classmates were flipping through their yearbooks when they noticed dozens of pictures had been edited.

In some pictures, sleeves were added and in others... The neckline was raised.

But what bothered the girls the most is it seemed like the school randomly picked which pictures to edit. In one case two different girls were wearing the same shirt. One photo was altered to add sleeves; the other was not.

Students say they knew they were breaking the school's dress code. But had they known their pictures would be altered, they would have changed closes and had the pictures retaken.

The superintendent says there was a huge sign warning the students that their photos may be edited.

But he admits the school erred in not applying the same rules to each student.
