Speaker 1: Shutterfly has developed a simple way to make a photo book in just minutes. We'll do most of the work, and you get the most outstanding way to preserve and share your memories. To get started, simply select the pictures you'd like in your photo book. Then review the book that we've created for you. We'll lay out your entire photo book by placing your pictures chronologically and grouping related pictures per page. If you like the way the book looks, you're done.
If you want to make a few changes, here's how. You can choose from a variety of styles by clicking the Change Style button in the upper left part of the screen. We've designed styles that correspond to seasons, milestones, special occasions, and holidays. With one click, the style you select will reset the backgrounds, layouts, edges, and fonts for your entire book. Select a new style if you'd like, then click the Done button when you're satisfied.
To change the way the pictures have been arranged in your photo book, click the Arrange Pictures button. Use the scroll bar on the right to view all pages. To swap the position of pictures, click and drag a picture and drop it on top of another. The pictures will automatically switch.
To add captions or text to pages, roll your cursor over the page until you see a green text box appear. You'll find that every page will have a text box. Click on the box and enter your text. You'll see a warning if you enter text that won't fit the space. Note that the font style, size, and color are set based on the style of the photo book you selected.
A simple way to improve the way your pictures look in your book is to crop them for maximum effect. Click on any picture to crop it or rotate it. When you're done, click the Close button at the bottom.
To rearrange the page order of your book, select Arrange Pictures. Then click on the background of the page you'd like to move, and drag and drop it to the desired location. You can add more pictures to your photo book by clicking the Add Pictures button in the upper right hand corner of the Arrange Pictures screen. On the top of window in the My Shutterfly account tab, find the album or pictures you'd like to add.
If you're a member of any Shutterfly share sites, you'll see pictures from these sites in the My Share Sites tab. You can also add pictures to your photo book by clicking on the Upload button in the lower left hand corner and upload more pictures to your account. If you need more space for pictures, highlight the page number next to where the new page should go. Then click the Add Page button in the upper right and an additional page will be inserted.
To add a picture to a page, drop it onto the background from the picture strip or from another page. To remove pictures, mouse over and click the X button on the picture you'd like to get rid of. The picture will be moved to the picture strip. You can also drag pictures off a page and down into the picture strip. To remove pages, click the Remove Page button in the upper right. You can also delete an empty page by clicking the X button on the page.
To complete your photo book's cover double click on the cover page, or click the text link that says Cover Options. To select a different picture, click the Change Picture button and select a new picture for the cover of your book. From the options on the left choose a cover layout. You can choose to have a cover without an image or versions with an image.
What's a book without a title? For hard and padded photo cover books, the title you choose for your cover will also be printed on the spine. In some cases you may also be able to choose a cover type from three types, soft cover, hard cover, or padded cover.
When you're done making changes to your photo book, click on the Project Menu and name and save your photo book. You can share your photo book by choosing Share from the Project Menu. Now order copies of your beautiful photo book for yourself or for friends and family by clicking Order.
