      Hi Susan,

      Welcome to Shutterfly!! As far as downloading pictures, you'll want to go to My Pictures in your Shutterfly account.

      You'll see an Upload icon to the left, click that and you can add your photos to your album. I'm not sure what a digital frame is though...Did you mean on your Share Site?


      Let us know if we can be of more help.

      To download a photo from a Shutterfly share site, go to the album view and double click on a picture to put it in the large view mode. If you have rights to download photos from the site, you will see a download option to the right of the photo. If you click on the download option, a pop up window will open to allow you to choose a location on your PC.

      Although Roger is correct about contacting the image owner, you will only be able to download from sites which you have proper permissions. This is set by choosing the "Advanced tab" of the "Edit site permissions..." option from the "Customize" menu. This has to be done by the site owner. The choices are "Everyone", "Members", "Owners", and "No One". As I said, if you don't have download rights, you won't see the download option.

      Even if you have rights to download, there are limitations. The following is from Shutterfly's help page:

      "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.

      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.  To do so, 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.

      If you want a site which is set to allow "Everyone" to download photos, check out my site at . Feel free to download any photos you like.

        I am on someones share site that they gave me permission to be on and download photos. I can click the little box and download each individual photo but how do I chose the Archive DVD download for all of the photos? There is nothing on the page im looking at that says anything other than download the image from this users share ***.

      You will need a Player Availability Section.

      Add New Section > Collaborate > Player Availability then follow these instructions:


      Player availabilityPrint view

      In order to track player availability for your team, please make sure you have added:
      • Players to your roster
      • Games to your calendar
      Once you provide this information, parents can update their child's availability for each game.
      If your question is more complex than this maybe you should tell us more.
      If you want availabilty for Practice as distinct from Games you must put your Practices in the Calendar.

      My question is a bit more subtle.  I have 18 players on a soccer team (actually 2 teams that practice together and some kids are "dual roster" , i.e. they may play for 1 or the other team depending upon availability).  One player is player pool, technically not allowed to play in any games but will practice with the teams and develop skills.  However, since he is on the roster and I want his parents to receive the notifications, he will show on all the game lists.  Is there anyway to remove him from the availability roster, but still have as part of the group?
