Shutterfly works with stores like CVS and more. Unlike Costco and Snapfish they offer storage without the need to purchase within a year. In other words, they won't delete your storage of pictures if you don't buy anything within a year's time frame. They don't have the photo editing capabilities of say picasa by Google but you can download your pictures, edit, send to Shutterfly, and then delete from your hard drive. You can also purchase external hard drives now too. But, for those who don't have the financial means to invest in more electronics, Shutterfly offers an alternative.
I know as a single mom, I don't always have the time to scrapbook and my scrapbooking episodes are few and far between.
I also have an old computer and don't want to use up space with a ton of pictures on my hard drive.
Kids and photography:
These on-line storage sites also allow my aspiring photographers to take lots and lots of pictures and then enter them in contests such as 4-H clubs and more, without filling-up the hard drive. They only have to be 13 to have their own site on Shutterfly.
NOTE: I do not work for Shutterfly and there may be more sites with these perks. I just stumbled upon this and thought I'd share.
Merry Christmas everyone!
