Next Step:
Connect Your Photos

Now connect your photo accounts, then sit back and relax while your designer selects your best images and creates your personalized album design. 

You'll receive a link to preview your custom album design within 1-2 weeks.

Note: If you elected to pay your deposit after connecting your photo accounts, we will email you shortly with a link for the deposit payment. The deposit is required before your designer will begin creating your album.

If your Shutterfly Share Site is private, add as a member. If your Share Site is public, send the URL of your site to and make sure your settings are set so that "Everyone" can download photos.

Note: Unfortunately we cannot download your photos if you simply share an existing Shutterfly album (vs. Share Site) with us. Shutterfly only allows photo downloads from Share Sites, not albums. See how to create a Share Site here.
