Summer is the time we are going to spend a lot more time with kids and family – play at home, hang out in the backyard, travel to have a vacation or to visit family, … It is also a time we are going to take a lot pictures. More and more, we use our phone as a convenient camera and before we know it, we have hundreds and hundreds of pictures on the phone. Where can we keep those pictures? I just find a perfect solution. Shutterfly has free apps for iPhone and iPad that provide unlimited storage space off your camera.
There are two separate apps from Shutterfly, one for iPhone, and one for iPad. To have the unlimited storage, you need sign up for a free account. Now there is a deal for new members – if you sign up now, you can have 50 free prints. You can sign up the new account via the apps or on their website.
Once you sign in into your account, tap on My Photos on the top left corner of the screen. You will see on the left 4 photo sources: iPad (or iPhone), Shutterfly, Facebook, and Instagram. Tap on Shutterfly, then My Album, then Create New Album. After you create a new album, tap on Upload Photos on the top right corner. The app will ask you to choose a photo album from your device, and pick the pictures you want to upload. Now you just wait for the photos to be loaded into your Shutterfly album. Once they are in the Shutterfly album, you can delete the photos from your device.
Shutterfly gives users unlimited photo storage with no time limit. You can keep the photos there for as long as you need to. This is a great advantage over iCloud via photo stream, that only keeps the photos for one month.
You can view the photos anytime via the app, or on the website. You can share the photos via email and social media, like Facebook or Instagram.
I love the apps, for the unlimited storage, unlimited time period, and anytime access on my phone and iPad.
The Shutterfly app is available on iPhone, iPod and iPad. It is also available on Google Play for Android. The first link below if for iPhone, and the 2nd is for iPad.
