PLIC Books has a couple of options to collect Candids from "out in the wild". A simple web URL can be distributed via email, flyers, etc. The Candid Collaborator simply Tags, Chooses and Uploads their photos using a computer or their smartphone/tablet. Create events, invite others, gather tons of content which is then seamlessly delivered into PLIC Books for your approval before it can be added to the book.
We have so many cool and useful features, we don't have enough room for them all.

Since PLIC Books is a Cloud-based web application, you can take your Notebook with you anywhere to work on your Yearbook masterpiece. Your Secure login ensures you can continue your work from any computer...
Here are some answers to questions a ton of people have asked:
Yes! PLIC Books uses 264-bit (HTTPS) Encryption for all transactions between your computer and our Web Application. All of our "Servers" are behind a Secure Firewall which protects against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks and other web threats.
PLIC Books performs a "Snapshot" every day of the entire PLC Books website and it's data. This includes every page, every book... everything! From there, PLIC Books has redundant Backups of those Backups. These Backups are then backed up in different locations.
Nope. When you purchase a "Credit" for a Book, it's yours. For example: If you bought 50 PLIC Books "Credits" and only used 49 for the year, that 1 "Credit" can be used for the next year. Make sense?
As we walk through the basics of editing, it's always fun to see how excited they get about the yearbook process, once they see how easy and user-friendly PLIC Books is. Being able to log in, and see almost everything you need on one screen is a huge plus for the customer. They are able to click from page to page, while still having access to the left side and the right side columns, which makes it incredibly easy to make changes or add things to the page. The customers continue to be blown away by the fact that multiple people can be working in the book at the same time AND that the program saves all these changes instantly. Customers appreciate the simplicity without it limiting editing features or the programs used for upper-grade levels. Creating a yearbook can be a daunting process, but having a great program like PLIC Books makes it easier for a lot of teachers and parents!
PLIC Books is another product in the PhotoLynx family that is essential for studios doing yearbooks. From ease to functionality PLIC Books is the best in the market. Thanks for filling the need with a great product!
PLIC Books Customer Service is impeccable! I appreciated the patience of the customer service representatives each time I called with a question. I found PLIC Books intuitive and logical to use. The backgrounds, graphics and pre-designed templates made creating the yearbook a breeze. Definitely one of the best yearbook applications I have had the pleasure of using.
I am happy to say we are nearing the end of our Yearbook season and PLIC Books has been a plus plus. All our schools have wholeheartedly agreed that it is a much better program then the one we used before. The cloud based system has eliminated any issues with logging on, moving subjects, and managing subjects is intuitive and simple. Proofing a book's classroom pages in real time has helped all schools. I wholeheartedly recommend PLIC Books.
Working with the software to make our yearbook this year has been wonderful! It really is very intuitive and easy to use!
Our customers’ user-experience with our yearbook software is THE driver for customer retention. After two years using PLIC I can say our customers love the UX — and they keep re-signing with us. Bonus points because our PLIC users typically need less hand-holding than customers using other software platforms.
