4.0 out of 5 stars Beginner's Guide to Digital Scrapbooking. March 31, 2006
Format:Paperback
Using the standard "For Dummies" format, the book explains the equipment and software for digital scrapbooking. It starts with the very basic, helping you decide if you need a newer computer and printer for this hobby. It reviews the various scrapbooking software available so you can choose the best for your situation.

It covers enhancing digital photos, considerations for page designs and how to fix damaged photos. Also covered is how to add texturing and how to make montage images. One part explains sharing your finished pages on CD or DVD or over the internet. There was much that was new to me (flattened image vs a native format file). They advise clearing out clutter from your computer (games, unused programs, defrag), since digital scrapbooking needs lots of storage space.

The final part of the book is in list format: 10 tips, 10 pitfalls, 10 ways to involve kids, 10 ways to use digital techniques with traditional scrapbooking.

Sprinkled throughout are cute cartoons, but few photos. Since scrapbooking is very visual, I missed seeing examples to match the design explanations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always reliable January 9, 2007
Format:Paperback
As with all the "for Dummies" books, this one is logically laid out and easy to use. I recommend it for any one starting out in digital scrapbooking. It takes you from the very basic to the more complex and beyond, with clear illustrations and photos (even some in color.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good beginners book August 30, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My daughter and I are new to digital scrapbooking and wanted to find a book to help us get started. I still like using my paper, stickers and embellishments, but she (age 25) is loving the digital because it's less mess!

Try it-- you'll like it! It takes some time to figure out how to get started, but I can see that it will be really helpful to share online with friends and family who don't live nearby. This book is a great start!!

Also look online for various digital scrapbooking websites that give you colorful ideas.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good basic book if you are starting out or thinking about it. Easy to follow directions and easy read. Highly recommend to purchase before spending a lot of money on digital scrapbooking supplies and many that you don't need, as I found out in this book. Will definatly save you money on what can be a very expensive hobby!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dumber than dumb January 20, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Me, not the book!! The book is very good and, if I take the time and patience to read and follow instructions, the projects come out well. I won't rate my ability to be patient! There's nothing Amazon or a Dummy book can do to help with that.
