The annual Christmas card is usually ordered and posted by now. I like to drop them off on the day before Thanksgiving so that they can hit mailboxes on Black Friday.
Not so this year.
We have a different computer configuration since the infamous crash of early fall, so I haven't been able to get tutoring on transferring photos. The photos are locked into the external hard drive, but tonight's e-mail had me motivated enough to do some investigation on my own. I figured that the worse I could do was to get a funky screen that would call for my neighbor to come bail me out.
Shutterfly was having a sale, y'all! There was an extension of Cyber Monday, I had a coupon code that came in K's photo package from school and I had free shipping since my order was over $30. I cashed in on a savings of $97.00!
You see, I plugged the camera in and touched the computer and told her how pretty she was. I wasn't brave enough to work with the external hard drive. I know nothing about it anyhow.
Then photos started popping up.
And it kept going.
It was a program that I wasn't familiar with, but I was lucky enough to have it be pretty easy to navigate. I was able to transfer all of the photos, they have arranged it in order of date and I transferred the photos that I needed over to Shutterfly. A photo that would work for our hodge lodge popped up lickety split and I was able to get all arranged and ordered in about an hour and 15 minutes. (I was being picky, so it wasn't any problem. I also wanted to check out card options.)
I'm so excited! I was having a tough time with my cards not being ordered or out. I'll be able to get them addressed quickly and out in the mail when they arrive.
