I create my pages as 12x12 -

Lately I've seen a lot of offers for free photo books, but when I drop my image in, either as a full page, or into a template where there should be a border, it crops my pages and I totally lose inches around all sides.

I think I have experienced this with Kodak, Shutterfly, and Picaboo.

I can find no option to resize within their templates or "fit to page" or anything like that.

Any insight?

I thought about resizing all of my pages to 8x8, but I don't think any of the books have been square...is that my main issue, do you think?

Guess I might just need to suck it up and pay to order what I'm looking for!

I print my 12x12 albums through shutterfly with no trouble. You can double click and page and adjust the zooming, but this should not normally be a problem. Mine normally autofit. Are you saving them at 300dpi. I don't think it should matter, just checking. Try shutterfly again, I've never had that trouble. I haven't tried the other two places. (the only part of the albums that are not 12x12 are the covers if you do a custom cover, you need the right dimmensions for that)
