What is Digital Scrapbooking?

What is digital or computer scrapbooking?
Digital Scrapbooking is the process of creating scrapbook pages or cards using photo or image-editing software. Digital scrapbookers import digital photographs and scrapbooking graphics into their image editing programs and arrange them to create "digital" scrapbook pages.

What software should I use to create my digital layouts?
Some of the most popular programs used for computer scrapbooking include Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photshop Elements, Lumapix: FotoFusion, Microsoft Picture It! and Paintshop or Paintshop Pro but any image editing application can work. Lumapix FotoFusion is our favorite digital scrapbooking software. Click here for a free trial.

What do computer scrapbookers do with their computer generated layouts?
Some digital scrapbookers save their pages in a digital format and archive them on their hard drive or on re-writable CD's. Others print out their digitally created pages and insert them into actual albums and scrapbooks.

What are the benefits of digital scrapbooking versus traditional scrapbooking?

  • Digital scrapbooking saves money: Unlike most traditional scrapbooking supplies that are "consumable," digital scrapbooking supplies can be purchased once and used forever.
  • Digital scrapbooking saves time: Instead of creating a separate page for each person at a given event, you can use the same template and drop in different photos or use the same layout but print out multiple copies (one for each person at a given event).
  • Digital scrapbooking saves memories: While traditional layouts and photos can fade or yellow over time, computer generated layouts are archived in a digital format where they are safe from the effects of heat, oxidation, time, and other external factors. Digital layouts never lose their vibrancy, detail, or color.
  • Digital scrapbooking saves space: Digital files are (obviously) smaller than "real" scrapbook pages, but also printed digital pages are less bulky than traditional scrapbook pages. Printed computer generated layouts save space in your scrapbooks.
  • Computer generated pages are easily shared: Digitally created pages can easily be shared with friends via the Internet, through e-mail, or via a CD.
