Getting Your Photos Online

Shutterfly was easy to join. The site logged me in after a short form, and took me to the Add Photos page. There are a few options for adding your photos depending on where you have them- film, computer, or cds, and how you'd like to send them - mail, at their website, from within your web browser or using their free software. They're all pretty easy, and I discuss each one in detail below.

Mailing your film to Shutterfly

If you have 35mm or APS film rolls or single-use cameras, you can send them to Shutterfly using their postage-paid film mailers. They will develop your film, mail you the negatives, and put your photos online, for $3.99. You can order prints at any time. To order the mailers, log-in to your account and click the Add Photos tab at the top of the screen. On the right-hand side, there's a text link for Order Film Mailers. On the next page, fill out the form to order them. They also have deals on prints packages, too.

Mailing a CD of photos to Shutterfly

Shutterfly will upload an entire cd of photos to your account free! Great if you have a lot of photos on your hard drive. The service is free - you pay postage to mail the cd. It takes a few days, and they do not return the cd. Be sure to keep copies on your hard drive or another cd. Shutterfly provides all the info on how to send your cd. After you log-in to Shutterfly, chose the Add Photos tab at the top. In the right-hand side, click the link for Mail in a CD.

Web Browser Upload

From your web browser, either Internet Explorer or Firefox, you can upload images one at a time. Click on the Add Photos tab, and, choose or create an album. An album is a handy way to organize your photos. It is simply a group of photos. I like to create albums by date - Fall 2005, 1980's, or by theme - graduation, wedding.

After creating or choosing an existing album, click Next in the upper right hand side of the page. On the following page, there will be spaces for 10 photos. Click Browse next to each space to pick a photo to upload. The photos must be in jpeg format. They usually have a .jpeg or .jpg at the end of the name.
