      Hi Bridget,

      It really depends on how you want to add the photo to the other website. If you want to add the actual photo to that site, it's best to just upload it from your computer to that website. However, by the way you ask this question, it sounds as if you no longer have a copy of the photo on your computer (see more on this below).

      Another way to put the photo on the other web site is just to load the URL address for the picture on Shutterfly. Currently, you can get an absolute URL for any photo in your account (My Pictures tab). However, I've only been able to get a relative URL for pictures on a Shutterfly share site.

      Thus, assuming you want a photo from an album on your "My Pictures" page, you can get the URL by locating the photo and double clicking on it to put it in the enlarged view mode. Once there, you right mouse click on the photo and the next step depends on your browser as shown here:

      Firefox: Choose the "Copy image location" option.

      Google Chrome: Choose the "Copy image URL" option.

      IE: Choose "Properties" and copy the "Address (URL)".

      Since this is an absolute URL, the address can always find the photo from anywhere on the net. Here's an example of one of my photos:

      http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a1d700b3127ccefe7fe67bae9b00000010O08AcOGLJk4aOAe3nwI/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/

      As stated above, if you want to upload the actual photo to the other web site instead of the Shutterfly URL for the photo, your best bet is to upload it from your computer. If you no longer have it on your computer, your options are limited. If you search the Shutterfly Help Pages for "download", you will find the following article:

      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:

      Pictures on the DVD are full-resolution

      Pictures are print-quality but not full-resolution. Downloads are a 1600x1200 copy, which is sufficient for printing up to and including 8x10.

      2. Mouseover the full-size image to see a drop-down menu, shown below.
      3. Click the "Download picture" option in the drop-down menu. You will be prompted to sign in to your Shutterfly account if you are not already. A 1600x1200 copy of the picture will be downloaded to your computer.

      Thank you.  Your response was very helpful. It took a number of tries but I got the photo onto the Caringbridge website.  Yes it was challenging because I did not have the original.  I was able to get the copy in the shared part of Shutterfly.

       I have been trying to e-mail some of my Kodak Gallery pictures and they will not go so maybe this is the answer I have been looking for. Would this also

      work to put on flash drives? I am so glad though that my pictures have been  stored with you because my computer crashed few months ago. How do I retreve them and put them back into my Kodak Easy Share Program? Let me hear from you...thanks
