About the book
Digital scrapbooking is clearly the wave of the future. Whether hobbyists plan to toss out their scissors and paste forever or simply want to share their best creations online, going digital is the way to go.
Digital scrapbooking has numerous advantages over the glue and paper alternative. It's cheaper; less messy; easier to store, share, and replicate; and, once you get the hang of it, more fun. And you probably already have a big head start: The average household has nearly a gigabyte of photographs stored in their PCs!
Digital Scrapbooking in easy steps lives up to its title claim. In compact, easy-to-understand tutorials, this full color paperback teaches you the basics of putting pictures together; making and changing simple backgrounds; frames, borders, and mats; type and text options; journaling; embellishing and layering; and improving and enhancing your photos. This invaluable manual then walks you through three actual projects, enabling you to create your own digital scrapbooks before you have even finished the book!
Memories are made to be shared and Digital Scrapbooking in easy steps is a family memory-maker that will continue to give for generations.

Reader reviews from Amazon.co.uk
"This book de-mystifies the technical aspects of digital scrapbooking. It is far superior to a certain yellow-and-black competitors' manual which is quite vague regarding the actual processes involved."
"I originally borrowed this book from a library but I "needed" a copy of my own!"
