This small program lets you share photos online via the Shutterfly.com Web site with virtually no hassle. It's a safe bet that almost all users will immediately understand this application's well-designed interface. Adding pictures to your album is a self-explanatory process, and the basic-editing tools are always visible just above the large preview pane. Shutterfly Express doesn't offer any high-end tools for tweaking your shots, but you can perform such basic edits as cropping, rotating, removing red eyes, and autocorrection. The app also can create no-frills slide shows and screensavers, though you can't add music to either one. Uploading your photos to the developer's Web site takes only a few seconds, but you will have to surrender your e-mail address to create an account. Though seasoned digital photographers will probably demand more than Shutterfly Express can offer, it strikes us as an ideal, free sharing solution for beginners.
