|What is Digital Scrapbooking?
Digital Scrapbooking is the process of creating scrapbook layouts, cards or projects on the computer using image-editing software. Digital photographs and scrapbooking graphics are imported into an image editing-program where they can be arranged to create a scrapbook page or project. Completed pages are then stored on the computer and can be printed out and placed in a scrapbook album. Visit our Gallery to see what has been created with our digital products.
Why should I try Digital Scrapbooking?
Digital scrapbooking makes it incredibly easy, and affordable to get creative while preserving your family’s most precious memories. Briefly, here are a few key benefits: Supplies are always stored neatly on your computer. There are no papers, brads, glitter or glue to clean up. Digital products can be endlessly duplicated and recolored to suit your needs. You will never run out of letters, stickers or ribbons as digital products are non-consumable and can be used over and over again. Completed layouts and projects are easily reproduced by simply reprinting. This allows you to quickly and affordably create custom gifts for the entire family.
What software should I use for Digital Scrapbooking?
The most popular programs used for digital scrapbooking are Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Elements, Corel Paint Shop Pro and Microsoft Digital Image Pro. Other options include: Lumapix: FotoFusion and Microsoft Picture It.
What is Hybrid Scrapbooking?
Hybrid Scrapbooking is the process of using your computer and digital scrapbook products, along with traditional (paper) scrapbooking items to create something tangible - a layout, a card, a mini-album or other altered item.
