How do I switch to Shutterfly to produce a photo book that I've already created using Adobe Photoshop?

I produced a photo book using the wedding format provided by Adobe and had Kodak Gallery produce the final product. The final book came back with problems.

Because I am not satisfied with Kodak, I'd like to have Shutterfly produce the book but I don't want to have to re-do the entire book. Isn't there a way to request Shutterfly's services without having to re-do the entire book from my end?

When creating a photo book, you have to choose a Shutterfly template if you want to automate the process of printing.

If you have already created a photo book using the Kodak template, you are basically looking at starting over again. Shutterfly only prints books in their formatting. Unfortunately, these are parameters they place upon us. It's no different than building the photo book on the Kodak website ( and asking them to send it to the Shutterfly website ( for print. The setup is not compatible with each other's services.

The only possible workaround for this that I can think of is to print the photo book to a PDF file (because it is a multiple page document) and hope that Shutterfly accepts PDF files for photo book printing (which I don't know whether they do or not, but it is possible).
