What you need to know about Custom Path

« Back to Photo Book Ideas

I’m addicted to the All New Custom Path, and I’m not alone. My Shutterfly colleagues and I ooh and aah over all the new photo books we’re making, because they look so good. And just like you, we love the new features like moving and resizing photos, the time-saving Autofill tool, adding text anywhere, using photos as backgrounds, and adding stickers and embellishments.

We also realize you may have questions or concerns about what happens to Classic Custom Path. Here’s the latest news.

Can I make a new photo book in Classic Custom Path?
Yes, you can create new photo books in Classic Custom Path  through January 2012.

Can I edit my saved photo books created with Classic Custom Path?
Yes, you can edit your saved Classic Custom Path photo books through January 2012. After January 2012, you will be able to view and order Classic Custom Path photo books, but you will not be able to edit them.

Can I convert my Classic Custom Path photo book to All New Custom Path?
No. However, you can save pictures from your Classic Custom Path photo book into an album and use them in an All New Custom Path photo book. Simply go to the Storyboard™ tool in Classic Custom Path and select the “Copy pictures to album” link at the bottom of the page.

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!
