Size available

by julie Foncy, 19 Mar 2017 (16:36 UTC)

I uploaded a pdf made with Iphoto. The upload works well but in the end the maximum size I can purchase is 9" x 6" and I would like to have 11x8,5. How can I do ? Thanks for your help

Hi Julie!

Thanks so much for your question (:

I've taken a look at your project and it appears that the file you have uploaded is sized at 11.69"x8.26". The reason you are not seeing the 11x8.5 product option available is because the dimensions are not proportionate to the file that was uploaded.

You may need to save your file out at the desired size and then re-upload into your project!

Let me know if you need any additional help (:

Where can I find text instructions? This site may be over my head as I use Shutterfly most often. I found everything I needed except text instructions.

Reproduce old scrapbooks

by alliehop, 05 Jan 2017 (14:05 UTC)
I want to reproduce my scrapbooks that are in 3 ring binders 8.5x11. I am scanning in the pages and bringing the image into the new photo book but it looks like the image will be cropped and I will lose some of my image. How do I shrink my image to fit within the borders? I don't care if there is a white border around the edge.

Hi there! If you're using our Book Designer it's actually a simple process to help with those images! Click on the Template button when you're within the project, select Styled Photo Book Set (shown in the right sidebar, you may have to scroll a bit), and then choose one of the templates that have a border. Often the best option is our Auto-Fit Template, which will automatically format your image to fit the page without losing content. :)

I hope this helps but please let us know if you have any other questions at!

Flip preview

by Keer Weekes, 21 Dec 2016 (00:01 UTC)
Flip review is not showing some updated pages on my latest project.
It's also showing pages with a tiled effect on my older projects done years ago.

I am having the same problem with flip preview. I duplicated a book, made some changes to it. 5 of the 6 changes show correctly in new version "flip preview" but there is one (page 21/48 of ID: 236265) which stubbornly refuses to update after several attempts. When I go to "layout preview" or edit mode the correct (updated) image is there. So I have no idea how book will turn out when printed.

Hi there! Our Flip Preview has been undergoing some upgrades recently so you may have encountered these bugs because of that. Right now the best preview to use is our Layout Preview, which shows the most correct crop guides and up to date changes. :)

If you have any other questions please email us at and we'll be happy to help!

Hello, I don't understand how to get around the red area cropping. I have a cookbook designed at exactly 6" x 9" (the pdf file is exactly these dimensions). I chose that file size from your available size list. Your preview generator gizmo showed my cookbook with a significant portion of the book hacked off on all sides in the "red box". How big do I need to design the file to so that I don't lose anything to cropping? I will just add enough white space around the whole file. At the end of the day I want a 6"x9" cookbook though...and I don't want any white space on the edges. If you can't do this, please let me know. Thanks =] Project ID: 236196
