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.

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.)

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.

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.

After working at a scrapbook store and selling scrapbook products I was nervous in pursuing the digital revolution. This book is a great guidebook for a beginner like me with enough detail in it to work a little deeper as one gets used to scrap booking the digital way. I am excited to combine both traditional and digital styles and this book really helps you achieve that goal. Easy to understand. Like having it on my kindle so it is with me wherever I go to scrapbook.

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!
