How do I create an email group?

If you often share photos with the same group of people, creating an email group can help save you time. When you share photos with a group, you simply add the group from your address book, rather than typing (or adding) all of the individual email addresses.

To create a new email group in your address book, complete the following steps:

  1. Log in to your account and click the My Account link at the top of the page.
  2. Locate the Address Book & Calendar section and click Edit address book.
  3. Click the Groups tab.
  4. Click the blue Create a group button.
  5. Type the group name.
  6. To add email addresses, type them in, cut and paste them from another application (such as Word or Excel), or add addresses that you've already entered in your Photo Center address book by clicking the Address book link.
  7. When you've finished making changes, select the Save Group button.

Tip: If you enter a friend's email address for the first time as a group member, we will automatically create an individual listing for them in your address book as well.

How do I import addresses from a Word or Excel File?

To make sharing photos even easier, you can import addresses saved an Excel or Word file from your computer to your Photo Center account. To import your addresses, follow these steps:
 
  1. First, you'll need to create an Excel or Word file with all of the addresses you'd like to import and save it to your computer.
    NOTE: The format for an Excel file needs to list each contact's information across six columns: the contact's name; street address; city; state; zip code; and email address. The format for a Word file needs to list each contact's information on four lines- the contact's name; street address; city, state, and zip code; and email address.
  2. Log in to your account and click the My Account link at the top of the page.
  3. Locate the Address Book & Calendar section and click Import Email Addresses from Word or Excel. Click the circle next to the name of the program where your addresses are saved and then click CONTINUE.
  4. Next, click the BROWSE button to find the file where you've saved your addresses. (A small pop-up will open once you've found your address file, select it and then click OK.) After you've found your file, click the CONTINUE button.
  5. If all of your addresses are successfully imported, you'll see a confirmation message and all of your contact names will be listed in your address book. If some or all of your addresses can't be imported, you'll see a message asking you to double-check the format in your address file. Once you're ready to try importing them again, click the TRY AGAIN button.
