Default Making a Calendar

My moms birthday is coming up and she is wanting a calendar of some of my pictures, who to use? I asked this same question on Facebook and everyone said Shutterfly. Well I tried it, and my pictures were so large most of them wouldn’t upload. I tried another website and the uploaded version of my pictures was extremely grainy. So now I’m back to the drawing board. I thought about trying Walgreens or SAMS but didn’t know if anyone else had any other opinions.
Thanks!

Would resizing the photos or saving them as a slightly lower quality photo make them work on Shutterfly?

Possibly, I just didn’t want to lower the quality any.

We've done several at Walgreens and have been satisfied.

We've had good luck with Shutterfly. I would find out what the largest file they can handle is, and resize to that. Should turn out fine.

Yes, just remember to save the saved version as a different name so as not save over your original file. The grainy looking pics on the other sight might just be for placement only.

I resized the pictures and it worked like a charm. When I get the order in we’ll see how the quality holds up. The “preview” version looked crisp so we’ll see.
Thanks!

Please keep us posted on how it works out for you if you wouldn't mind. I've thought about getting one made, so I'd love to hear your feedback on the final product.

I’ll let you know! I’ve been curious about making one for years as well. I hope it turns out ok.
