    DefaultShutterfly Photo-Size???

    Does anyone know how (if) you can manage photo-size in Shutterfly? I didn't realize how much of my photos I am losing until I posted this morning ... this original shot was beautiful but, after Shutterfly, Raleigh's missing 1/3 of his face!!! Grrrrrrrrr ...

    Shutterfly loads to specific sizes/ratios. I think its 4x6/6x43:2. Did you crop your original picture from a bigger picture? Did you crop to specific size like 6x4? If you didn't, when you uploaded to shutterfly, it cropped your picture to the specific size it uses. This did away with part of your picture. The only way to get around it is to go back to your original 3:2 picture (this is the ratio of L to W that your camera takes pictures at) and recrop to a 3:2 ratio (6x4 is a 3:2 ration, 6/2=3;4/2=2, this =s 3:2 ratio). Hope this makes sense.

    That's why I dumped shutterfly and went with photobucket.com

    Thank you!

    I did not crop before loading to shutterfly, so they did the cropping for me. > I'll go back to the original to play with it, and see what I can do.

    Here is the same image using photobucket ... we got Raleigh's nose and eye back!!! And I like how photobucket gives you easy re-sizing options ... and all the links are listed on the side.

    Thanks for the tip!

    I took a closer look at the last picture and, guess what ... without even knowing it, I took a "reflection" shot! :P ;D

    Snapfish does this, too! I spent the most part of yesterday going back into my external harddrive digging up old pics to get them printed elsewhere. I was going for some 8X10's that I had cropped myself and when I put them in Shutterfly and Snapfish, they took off the heads! :
