    thanks for clearing that up. Is it a newer option? I had read in many places that you can't download high res images with shutterfly & I've never had luck finding the option.

      I really like Snapfish...I love there prices and the group photo books. There projects you can buy are reasonably priced and they look relay good.

        So sorry for the late reply. Our DVD service has been around for awhile, but please note, this service is not a download but an actual DVD.

        For example, let's say you share a bunch of high-res images to you your mom via Shutterfly. She wouldn't be able to download those images directly from the Shutterfly site, but you (or she) could order a Shutterfly DVD of those images and have them sent directly to her in the mail. Hope that makes sense.

        If you have more questions about Shutterfly I will be happy to answer them.

        Thanks so much,

        Rachel B

          I LOVE shutterfly! I have made so many photobooks on their site and ordered tons of prints! They always turn out really amazing and are great quality, plus you get all those cool coupon codes from them!

            I would recommend shutterfly. We went to Mexico in May and my friend made us all photo books they turned out awesome. I have also used them to have pictures enlarged, that is where you need to be careful with resolution, I think for the photo books your digital cameras normal resolution will be okay. If you know its def a pic you may want to enlarge change the setting on the camera to higher or leave it that way, it just won't hold as many pics in memory.

              If you order through shutterfly, use all those codes for discounts. Their system will automatically use whatever they allow and you can save the rest for another purchase. There are always discounts with shutterfly. Never pay full price.

              Thanks to Bianca's Post (and coupon codes) - a couple of weeks ago I ordered my BD book - which reminds me I should take a couple pictures of that -

              To say the least - I was very happy with the results - an added bonus was that they didn't charge me duty on the book ( I am in Canada). I was thrilled to receive a leather bound book for $40 with shipping and all to my door! YAY

              I can't wait to give it to my FI!

                    How long does it take to produce the photobook with shutterfly? I am ordering mine today and was hoping I could have it by next Friday (I am having it sent 2 day mail). TIA

                      Hi Shandra,
                      My name is Rachel and I actually work at Shutterfly. Our customer service team tells me that your book will most likely be delivered by 9/29, but if you're still concerned, send me an email at rbakker@shutterfly.com with your order number or email address, and we'll look into your specific order. Hope that helps.
