I am in the process of switching from iPhoto to Aperture. I use Shutterfly for photo sharing with my family as well as for books and cards etc. I use the shutterfly addin for iphoto. I cannot seem to see one for Aperture. Does anyone know if one exists?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.5)

    Any suggestions on where else I can go to try and find an answer?

    There doesn't appear to be a plug-in to directly upload to Shutterfly.

    However you can access your Library from the Shutterfly uploader. On the left there's a Media heading, your pics can be accessed there. Command-Click for selecting multiple pics.

    Note, this requires:

    1) You have "share previews with iLife and iWork" turned on in preferences.
    2) You have previews generated for any photos you wish to see. Photos without previews will not appear in that window.

    My suggestion is to export photos to a folder that you want to upload to Shutterfly.

    Thanks for the info and ideas. If I choose to use a referenced library, can I also point iphoto at that library. That way, I could use the iphoto plugin (also would have the benefit of making life easier for my wife...)

    Yes... but you realise that you would only be uploading original files, as they results o your processing is not available there. (Unless, that is, that you're going to process them again in iPhoto)

    Sharing your Previews with iPhoto might work better, no?
