    I am a new mac user.

    When I log in to Snapfish and click to upload photos it only allows me to choose from photos that are in my pictures folder or other folders on the hard drive. It does not allow me choose pictures to upload from iPhoto?

    How do I do this?

    From within iPhoto app, select the photo(s) you want to use and either drag to the desktop or use the export function to export to the desktop. Then upload from there. If you have many, you can create a folder on the desktop and export your individual pics into that and then upload.

    Thanks Mary.

    Seems like an extra step for no reason.

    Preach on! This is from another new Mac user, loving his Mac, but not understanding how making some things easier can make other things much more painful...

    Just drag and drop

    Just drag and drop from iPhoto to the text fields in the upload page.

    If you are using Firefox 3 you can use this addon to enable the selection of 12 image files at a time in an iPhoto or Finder window. You then drag them to the Browse button next to the top upload box; the selected files will fill in the rest of the boxes down the page.

    One day there may be an addon for iphoto to upload direct from there to snapfish like picasaweb. But nothing like that exists yet that I know of....On second thoughts Apple are unlikely to make it any easier to upload to snapfish as they are a direct competitor for their own print products.

    you could zip the photos up and upload them in a zip file.. it's a breeze :) i just uploaded 300+ plus photos in 1 zip file..

    The pictures are in the folder marked 'iPhoto Library' in the Pictures folder. They're arranged by year->month->day.

    But the easiest way is to drag straight from iPhoto into the file selection window in the browser. Exporting isn't required.

    Mac to snapfish Exporter not working

    Just got off the phone with the tech team at Snapfish and they say there is a known problem with the Exporter from iPhoto to Snapfish with Mac Lion with no fix in sight. :mad:

    This is still a point of frustration for me. Doesn't seem to be a one-step solution in sight.
