    Moving from Shutterfly back to my PC
    How do I move pictures from Shutterfly back to my PC
    <p>Now that I have uploaded my pictures to shutterfly I erased my cards for other uses but now I want to put those pictures back onto my PC.</p>
    <p>What are the steps to do this?&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Or are my pictures now only with Shutterfly and&nbsp;I can not dowload them back to my PC?</p>
    <p>There are some pcitures I want to edit in Adobe Acrobat to get dirfferent effects and edits that Shutterfly does not have the applications.</p>
    <p>Thank you</p>

      The following is from the Shutterfly Help Pages:

      Can I download my pictures from Shutterfly?

      Currently, we do not have full resolution downloading available. However, we do have an Archive DVD service that you can order which contains full resolution copies of your pictures. The images on an Archive DVD will not include any of the Shutterfly enhancements or rotations that have been applied to an image loaded to Shutterfly. You can order an Archive DVD here:

      If you wish to download a print-quality copy of a photo, you can do so through our Share Sites. Please note that this is not a full resolution download of the image, but just a 1600x1200 copy of the original image. This should be sufficient resolution for prints up to and including 8x10. Downloading images can only happen when viewing a single image and with a Shutterfly account. To do so, sign into your Shutterfly account and click the "Download this picture" link on the right of the image and follow the instructions. Although there is no limit to the number of photos visitors may download, each image must be downloaded individually. We do not currently offer any batch downloading.


      Please can someone tell me that shutterfly is free or not?  If i upload my pics, will it be deleted after sometime or what??

      It is free. There are no limits currently. They will not be deleted.

      You must always keep a backup.

      How does anyone know what might happen in the future?
