Shutterfly, based in Redwood City, California, is one of the more well-known photo book publishers and has been around since 1999. In addition to photo books, which Shutterfly started offering in the Summer of 2004, Shutterfly prints other personalized products such as cards and stationery, prints, posters, calendars, puzzles and mugs.

Shutterfly's book making software is online and works with both Mac and PC. You upload your photos to individual albums to build your book. There are 5 different sizes offered, in landscape and square orientation.

You cannot create your own layouts within the program, but instead can choose from the approximately 270 layouts offered, or you can create your own layouts outside the program. UPDATE: 7/30/11 - Shutterfly now offers layout customization called Custom Path. Digital scrapbookers will find a separate section with information on how to upload pre-created jpeg pages. Check out my detailed Shutterfly Review.
