December Daily on iPhone

Well we are on Day 6 of December Daily and I have been doing well so far. I have chosen the route of journaling on my phone and picking the pictures that I will use for my December Daily album by using the iPhoto App. I love this app, it has a little bit of a learning curve so I will be doing a  tutorial on it in the near future.

I have set up a December daily Journal and I have been good with adding the pictures at the end of  each day and journaling the memories down. My plan is to print my pictures on Sunday and put them all in my pretty little album that I have all set up. I will print the photos through Shutterfly and pick them up at my local Target. I do this because I can upload the photos straight from my phone to Shutterfly which makes my life easy.

I have some screen shots of what my December daily is looking like so far from my phones perspective! I do have some photos that I have taken with my good camera as well. I’m quite excited about this project as it is my first December daily so I am looking forward to the end to see how it all turns out!

I wanted to share this with you so you could see how easy it is to have all the journaling done for your scrapbooking album. I like to write my journaling by hand in my scrapbooks but if I wanted to I could just print out all the notes and memory notes that I have in the journal and use those as my journaling cards for my album.

Have you ever wondered how to get those photos off of your iPhone? There are different ways to accomplish this task and depending on your needs you can choose to follow all the methods that I am going to teach you or you can pick and choose the one that is best for you.

The first method that I am going to teach you is very straightforward and only entails a few steps. Go to the app store on your iPhone or iPad and download the Shutterfly for iPhone app.

If you do not already have a shutterfly account you can create one by clicking Once you have an account all you have to do is open the app on your phone and log in. Create a folder and label it your iPhone pictures. Remember to let Shutterfly access your folders and the location information from your phone.

When you allow Shutterfly this access the location information will be printed on the back of your photo. I do this because I scrap chronologically and this helps me with the project life project that I am working on with my cell phone pictures.

Shutterfly gives you the ability to look through your photos and choose which ones you would like to upload. Once you select all the photos that you would like to upload all you have to do is click upload and your photos will be uploaded directly to Shutterfly.

Now that your photos are at Shutterfly you can log in and review your photos, edit them if you would like to and get them printed.

It really is just that easy by using this method! Before you know it you will have your photos from your phone printed and ready for an album!

Techy Stuff about the App

Now a few things about the settings for the Shutterfly app for the iPhone, the thumbnail cache should be set to unlimited. I have my notifications set up to tell me when an upload has completed and when new photos are on my phone since my last upload. I especially like this feature because I don’t have to review pictures that I have previously uploaded to Shutterfly. I have not logged in with my Facebook account but that is an option if you would like to use that and I do not have the shake viewer on but these are just my personal preferences.
