Topic Wiki

Update 9/1/16: If you're having issues with the new uploaded refusing to upload certain pictures, try this: create a share site and upload your pictures to that. The share site uploader will (for now, at least) actually upload all your files, and you can than use these pictures on the regular site as usual.

Whenever they have 101 prints free, only order 99.  At 100 prints, you enter the next shipping category. (so the additional 2 prints cost $2 or so shipping.)

Free book code knowledge base:
 
- These are available from time to time and will be posted either in this thread or on DDMS.
- The codes are generally for an 8x8” sized book and 20 pages (10 spreads). Extra pages are $1.
- Take note of their expiration date; sometimes they last a month or more, sometimes only a couple of days.
- The code does not include shipping.
 
How to maximize:

- You could use the codes in multiple accounts.
- Don’t wait for your book to be ready before applying the code; some codes are limited in quantity. Log in to your Shutterfly account and go to this page. Type the code into the box and click enter; your free book will now be listed under your “Promos and Discounts”.
- The code could be used for any size or type of book, and for any amount of pages. It will simply subtract the value of an 8x8”, 20-page book from your total.
- 30, 40 and even 50% off coupons are pretty much perpetual; use them to bring down the remaining cost of your book even further. These codes could be found in Shutterfly’s marketing emails, and often on their homepage as well. These codes will work on both the book itself and on any additional pages you add.
- If there is no substantial discount available at the moment you may want to wait a week or two. It won’t take long to appear.
- If the expiration date is coming up and your book is not ready, you could chat with them and they will generally give you a very generous time extension.
- It’s a good idea to always have a couple of books ready to go, so that you’re ready when a free code comes up.
- If a book is in one of your accounts and the code in another, you could create a Share Site and send the book between accounts that way.
- Code SHIP39 will give you free shipping on orders over $39, so could combine your book with a regular print order and save on shipping. From time to time there will be a free shipping code available for less than $39. Otherwise shipping on the book itself is around $10.

I have a snapshot of screen of free photo book code for anyone who wants to chat Shutterfly to get a credit if the link was not working for them. I chatted them and they credited me for the book with Expiration of May 6. I would attach it here however it is too large a file and the forum won't allow me to attach it
You can compress it with programs like Microsoft Office Picture Manager or Paint and then upload it.
Or host the picture with imageshack, etc.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Just made three books using the STORYTIME code, all for $26.10 (shipping, tax..) awesome!

PSA If you would like to use the code to make multiple books like i did, use a different credit card, not only a different account. When i entered same CC on diff account it told me code has already been used, so i had to share that book to a third account order it from there with a different CC. Just a heads up to save you some time and frustration.

I ordered a 8X8 book last night. Thanks!
On a side note, I did upload them to Shutterfly in the full quality I had shot them on my dslr (high quality jpeg for most, still too amateur to work with RAW very effectively I'm afraid). When setting up the photo book, on some of the pictures after I selected the portion of the photo I wanted I appear (that would fit the template of that page ) it would display a bit blurry. The preview of the book did the same. It's not the end of the world if it prints that way, but I'm surprised pictures taken on a 60d would do that even though they are not being blown up very large.
Maybe it'll print clearly and it was just the preview which couldn't process the large file clearly? I hope so at least...

The blur is normal. If the picture is sharp it'll print sharp.
