What is Digital Scrapbooking?

I've never heard of digital scrapbooking. What is it?

It is easy to explain what digital scrapbooking is, if you already know what scrapbooking is. At the small arts & crafts store where I once worked, I had to answer this question quite often. Scrapbooking is essentially taking photos from your life and preserving them in a more unique way. Instead of just putting them into a photo album, you decorate them with fancy paper and colorful embellishments. The things you add to the pictures can help tell a story. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, well scrapbooking can make a picture worth ten thousand words.

These days most people take photos on digital cameras, meaning they don't have hard copies of photos to work with. So when it comes to what digital scrapbooking is, it would be using this same technique except in a digital format. It's great for people who have hundreds or even thousands of photos on their computers. People who enjoy scrapbooking with physical pictures can enjoy digital scrapbooking just the same.

The entire process will take place on your computer. All you need is a photo editing program (any program of your choice), and your digital photos. Fancy paper and embellishments can be downloaded for free, purchased from scrapbooking sites, or even created by you if you have a scanner.

Why do some people prefer digital scrapbooking?

One of the best things about digital scrapbooking is the fact that your creativity is completely unlimited. If you find a nice background or design that catches your eye, you can use it in your scrapbook. You don't have to worry about printing it out and losing quality. Simply open your downloads in your editing program and do whatever you want with them. That could include changing the color of it, making it bigger or smaller, rotating it, cropping it. The possibilities are endless. The added bonus would be the fact that there are many really nice scrapbooking supplies available to download for free. You don't have to have money to be able to make nice pages.

Digital scrapbooking is less messy than regular scrapbooking. You don't need glue, scissors, or anything. There's no clean up afterwards, and no worrying about where to store all of your supplies. You can simply create a folder on your hard drive for saving your supplies.

Digital scrapbooking is a preference for some people because the finished product is easier to store, share, and save. For example, the pages can easily be stored on your hard drive. They can be emailed to friends and family, posted on your favorite scrapbooking site, or even posted on your social networking profiles. They are easier to save because you can make extra copies of your work so you always have backups if files become corrupted or accidentally deleted. If you decide to print them out, you know you always have copies backed up in case anything happens to the prints.

Digital scrapbooking can be fun for people of all walks of life and all levels of creativity. You don't have to spend a lot of money to create nice pages. You don't have to worry about losing your finished products or storing your supplies. And best of all, you can share your creations with friends, family, anyone. Digital scrapbooking can be a fun alternative for regular scrapbookers, or just something fun to do with all those extra digital photos you have on your computer. Anyone can enjoy it, and you won't know if you'll enjoy it until you try.
