Shutterfly Share Site

Posted on Jul 29 2013 - 10:32am

Faster easier sharing of photos and videos at our Shutterfly share site.  See the 'Photo Albums' page for the link.  A password is required to get to that.   The shutterfly site is locked except for registered emails, we tried to enter everyone's email address shown on the website.  If for some reason it won't let you in, contact me (wendi T.) see "parents" on the roster.    

However this new "share site" will allow everyone to keep their pics in their own computer and just post to our share site and everyone else can see them and get copies and this new share site includes videos!    The site does have an email capability and a calendar events function WE WILL NOT BE USING THOSE!.  So please refer to only this website http://www.avtroop586.mytroop.us for activities and functions.    We can even make digital photo books and add them to the site for others to see or even buy if they want.   This should be a little easier to use as well.  But remember you need to have the preferences set for yourself when you log into this http://avtroop586.shutterfly.com site or you will start getting spam email from them.  Just set your preferences to suit you. 

Should you ever forget this info (this post will not stay forever) visit the -photo albums- page of this website for the information you need to use shutterfly.
