If you are thinking of making the move to digital scrapbooking you will do well to read this book by Sally Beacham and Lori J. Davis. Assuming that you have not committed to one image editor, the authors use five popular image editors in the examples throughout the book. They demonstrate the similarities and differences between Jasc Paint Shop Pro, Adobe Photoshop Elements, Microsoft Digital Image Pro, Serif Photo Plus and Ulead Photo Impact. But this book is not about imaging software. It is about digital scrapbooking.

The authors begin by discussing the pros and cons of digital scrapbooking and what you will need to get started. Besides showing how to make completely digital scrapbook pages, the authors also show many ways to integrate digital scrapbooking with traditional scrapbooking.

Next, they cover scanning photos into the computer and what can be done to correct and enhance your photos once they are in digital form. They discuss image corrections such as cropping, alignment, noise reduction, red eye removal and color correction.

The authors discuss two popular styles for scrapbook pages. The first style, faux-paper, emulates the textured paper, fibers, tags and other embellishments of traditional scrapbook pages. The second type, graphic design, has a more commercial look which emphasizes enhancement of photos and elaborate word art. They discuss how to use pre-designed layouts and how to design your own pages digitally.

Next, they begin to build a digital layout. They discuss color and how it should relate to and enhance your photos. Once you have chosen a color and texture for the background of your layout, you add your photos.

Text techniques and word art are a natural extension of digital scrapbooking.

What an Amazing book! It's for everyone that keeps asking "when will we have a book for digital scrapbooking?" This is THE digital scrapping book to have. There is something for everyone from the beginner to the advanced digital scrapbooker. There are almost 300 pages packed full of information and color photos. An added bonus is a CD that includes Tutorials, Page Kits, Templates, and Alphabets. That's not all either, there are over 100 Fonts, Clip Art, free and shareware Plugins, and Sample Layouts that were featured in the book. It is not program specific and covers Digital Image Pro, Paint Shop Pro, Photo Impact, Photoshop Elements, and Photo Plus. I work at a large digital scrapping website, Digital Scrapbook Place, and will definitely be recommending this book to our members.

I am also using "Digital Scrapbooking" as a reference book and keep it on my desk. There is an index so it's easy to find whatever you're looking for quickly. I only wish this book had been available when I was struggling to learn how to digital scrap. Thank you Sally and Lori for an awesome book! It's obvious that a lot of thought went into this book to give digital scrappers exactly what they have been asking for.

This is a wonderful book about digital scrapbooking! They cover of course the what and why, but most importantly they covered the how! Many books gloss over how to do the scrapping or show very low quality pages that wouldn't encourage readers to try it. But this book has it all. There's meat, there's info, it's just a wonderful resource - perfect for those who want a book they can hold and read that will really help them learn the digital concepts. And along with all this information, there is a CD full of goodies! The CD alone is worth more than the price of the book! Whether you want to learn about digital scrapbooking, get better at it, just want a CD packed with fonts, page kits, embellishments, filters, etc, or all of the above, buy this book!

This is it, the one book you need to learn digital scrapbooking. Sally gives you clear concise step-by-step instructions that will take you from the basics of digital scrapbooking to more advanced techniques.

Chapter by chapter you will build your skills. Then have fun with the CD full of digital scrapbooking supplies. Paint Shop Pro is a great digital scrapbooking program and Sally is definitely a GREAT Paint Shop Pro teacher!!

(Sally's other books are great as well.)
