Photoshop Elements: Problems creating Shutterfly Photo book (Images compressed and not centered)

Has anyone run across this problem. Searched the forum here, and nothing has come up.

Created a photo book using the Elements 9 organizer. Selected the order button, it saved the files, transferred them, then opened a Shutterfly window to complete the order. Single Image that Shutterfly would show was the cover to center the title page image in a center cut space on the cover. The image looked compressed and not centered. Exited the program, re centered the image and selected order again. Same result, image looked centered but compressed.

Went to the Shutterfly website in make sure that images were not compressed like that (since it saves your project under your profile). Instead found that some pages were correct, and some (like the title page) took an entire page that I made in Elements and compressed it into a single frame of a three framed picture page, for example. The whole project is a total mess! I'm just glad I looked on the Shutterfly site before pressing the purchase button and paying $30 for a book to be delivered looking like that!

Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? I pretty much used all of the prompts in elements to create the book, and since Shutterfly is supposed to be seamlessly integrated into this, I thought it would work without problems.

Please let me know what I am doing wrong.

Could you provide more details? Which photobook template(s) have you tried? Please list both the size and name.

Also, if you click the Print button, instead of Done or Order buttons, does you book look correct in the Print Preview? (Make sure your printer is setup to the same size, for example, printing to 8x8 if that is the template you are using).
