      Hi Jim,

      If you search the Shutterfly Help Pages for "download", you will find the following:

      Downloading images: options available (Archive DVD, Share site download, Shutterfly for iPad)

      How can I download images from Shutterfly?

      Currently, we do not offer full-resolution downloading. However, we do have three methods by which you can get digital copies of pictures: Archive DVDs, Share Site Downloading, and the Shutterfly for iPad app. Use the option that best suits your needs: Archive DVDs take some time to process and ship, but can contain many images at full-resolution. Downloads are lower-resolution and done individually but are available immediately. A comparison of the two:

       

       Archive DVD

       Download from a Shutterfly Share site

      Download from Shutterfly for iPad app

       What it is:

       A DVD of full-resolution copies of pictures.

       Download individual pictures from a Shutterfly Share site.  

      Download individual pictures from within the Shutterfly for iPad app.

      How many pictures:

      The DVD can contain up to thousands of pictures.

      There is no limit to the number of photos you can download, but each image must be downloaded individually. We currently do not offer batch downloading

      Resolution available:
