Digital Scrapbooking Tips
by Dee Marie
What is digital scrapbooking? It is a way to expand your scrapbooking tools using your computer! With the high quality, yet affordable printers available, you can print photos and other scrapbooking embellishments right from your home! This can help you save time and costs while still creating fabulous pages.
Digital scrapbooking options vary greatly. You can print an entire page layout, borders, or individual embellishments that you cut out and apply. Many websites offer free images, and others offer memberships where you can join and have access to all kinds of options. You can also purchase CD-ROMS with scrapbooking themes and printouts.
Digital scrapbooking goes beyond simply printing and pasting, however. For the computer-savvy scrapbooker, computer programs that allow you to alter photographs and create other graphic designs are used to create fabulous print and electronic scrapbooks. Favorite programs include Microsoft Picture It!, Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro. For those not inclined to scrapbook in the traditional sense, a digital scrapbook can be just as fun as the handheld version. These scrapbooks are often saved on a disk that can be copied and shared with friends and family. This aspect of digital scrapbooks is very appealing. Electronic scrapbooks can take just as long as paper scrapbooks to create, but once they're finished, they can be easily copied and shared. Some people also like the idea that these scrapbooks are less likely to become damaged.
Because digital scrapbooks are done on a computer, the best place to find more information about computer options is online. There are numerous websites providing free information on digital scrapbooking. If you'd like to learn more, consider taking a class in using the software.
Digital scrapbooking can be a great way to add to your traditional scrapbooks and also a fun alternative.
