WASATCH COUNTY, Utah – The yearbook photos weren’t exactly what they had in mind.

Students at Utah’s Wasatch High School discovered that their yearbook photos had been altered to show less skin. In some cases, sleeves were added to cover exposed shoulders. In others, tattoos were airbrushed out.

Students told FOX 13 News that they were dismayed by the lack of consistency in the changes. In one case, two students wore the same top; one student’s picture was altered while the other’s wasn’t.

“I feel like they put names in a hat and pick and choose who,” Rachel Russel, a sophomore, told FOX 13. “There were plenty of girls that were wearing thicker tank tops and half of them got edited and half of them didn’t.”

School officials said students knew the dress code and had been warned that pictures could be edited. The superintendent admitted that the policy needed to be enforced more consistently.
