Utah School Alters Female Yearbook Photos To Show Less Skin

Female students at Wasatch High School in Utah were surprised to find their yearbook photos were altered without them knowing about it.

Some students in Utah's Wasatch High School were upset to discover their yearbook pictures had been altered without their knowledge, Fox 13 News reported.

In some pictures, sleeves were added...

And others had their necklines covered up.

This student's tattoo appears to have been removed too.

The students said they were most bothered by the fact that the pictures seemed to be altered at random. Below two students wear nearly identical outfits, and only one had sleeves added to it.

"I feel like they put names in a hat and pick and choose who," sophomore Rachel Russel said. "There were plenty of girls that were wearing thicker tank tops and half of them got edited and half of them didn't."

Wasatch County Superintendent Terry Shoemaker said the students should have known the dress code and said there was a sign warning them pictures might be edited. He did apologize for the randomness of the rule:

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.

BuzzFeed has sought comment by an administrator at Wasatch High School, but did not immediately receive a response.
