Shutterfly

If your Shutterfly Share Site is private, add hello@shortcakeinc.com as a member. If your Share Site is public, send the URL of your site to hello@shortcakeinc.com 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.
