    I try to do a monthly update…with style, photos, header and story changes. I really need to learn how to add music!

  5. Natalie Says:

    I try to change my headers every time we take pictures, so that everyone can take a quick peek at what happened at the last event! Every now then i change the style as well, just to spice things up! Great idea all around!

    Great tips, and so easy to use.

    Sometimes I can’t keep up with the sharesite but every couple of months I will change it up… Great tips! Maybe I’ll try to do that more often. I also like to send a group email with a link to the site just to say “hey, come see what we’re up to”. I have a lot of friends and family that are too lazy to register (or don’t want to for whatever reason) so that keeps the non-member types interested too :o)

    Thank you for sharing the wonderful tips. I do like changing the Share Site Styles once in a while. But I am fall inlove with the simplicity of black&white and red backround. I think I need to update my share site really soon. Rachel, Thank you for sharing your wonderful idea.

    Looove my share site. I change the featured pictures pretty regular, plus add pictures to the site as a whole. I can’t wait for Christmas because I’ll be changing my site colors to one of the great Christmas colors. Love the advice!!

more about Rachel B

Thank you for visiting “Picture More”, Shutterfly's Community Blog. My name is Rachel, and I come from a long line of photo enthusiasts. My grandparents kept a large (and heavy!) collection of family photo albums in their living room, which my sister and I loved looking through. My mother continued the tradition by becoming a hobby photographer (phrases like “smile, “hold that pose” and “let me get my camera” were a constant part of our lives). Now my sister and I are avid camera fans. She takes beautiful pictures of her children, and I enjoy capturing the many far-away places my husband and I visit. What I love about Shutterfly is that it helps me turn my photos into meaningful keepsakes like photo books, calendars, and photo gifts (I love my coasters, posters, mug and mouse pad!). My memories are now a part of my everyday life, not living in a shoe box or hard drive. And what I love about "Picture More" is that it will help us get even more creative with our pictures. I'm excited to exchange ideas with all of you!
