About advancedyou

  • We only provide images in high-resolution e.g. the images we use to print your school photography packages. We know some companies provide low resolution images and charge extra for a high-resolution image. This is not how we work.
  • Customers who purchased a separate, printed portrait (i.e. a loose portrait sheet), can obtain a high-resolution portrait image up until the following year’s portrait image has been taken (usually for up to 9 months after delivery)
  • If you would prefer not to have an advancedyou image archive, simply let us know in writing and we will permanently delete your child’s image archive. However, please note that this process is irreversible once completed.
  • Sibling photos have their own separate advancedyou archive. These images can be obtained by entering the secure 9 digit code on your sibling photos at here on our home page.
  • Group images cannot be obtained as digital files. This is for both privacy and economic reasons, to prevent digital files being shared or modified.
  • High resolution packages and images from as far back as 2009 may be available.
  • Why is one or more year’s photos missing? Your child may have been absent on photo day on that year, there may have been an issue or changes with the data supplied to advancedlife that prevented an image from being linked correctly. Unfortunately, if this has occurred there is no way to re-link the image.
  • What happens if I’m not happy with the gift I ordered? A preview of your design is provided online to enable you to check your order prior to purchase. advancedlife takes no responsibility nor will provide a refund if you change your mind about a product you have ordered or if you have made an error when designing your item or used an image that has not reproduced correctly. If your item is damaged during delivery, please photograph the damaged item and notify us by email within 7 days of receipt. All refunds on items damaged during delivery are made at the discretion of advancedlife.
