Someone told me today that you could not use Photoshop Elements without 1st having regular Photoshop, that it was just an add-on. I think they didn't know what they were talking about, but since I wasn't positive, I didn't wanna argue and look dumb, lol!! Are they right or am I?
I now use Craft Artist 2 and now also have Photoshop Elements 10. I love them both and constantly learning new things which I love too! You also may want to check out the Digital topic down toward the bottom of the Forum index and then click on What program do you use as there are lots of different programs mentioned and a list of who uses what program. Have fun. Great possibilities with digital and standard scrapbooking.
Another vote for Photoshop Elements--unless you're a professional photographer the full Photoshop program is unnecessary IMO. But elements can do most of it, is more user friendly and doesnt cost an arm and a leg
Stampin' Up has a digital software, MDS2. I have only played with it just a little bit so I am not sure that I am really the best to tell you its positives or negatives.
They do have free digital downloads from time to time. Totally free!!!! I know they are designed to use in MDS but I am sure they could be used in elements as well! FREE is always good. Right now there is a free Christmas tag.
You can see details on my blog if you are interested in downloading it!!!
I tried a lot of software, but I would also give photoshop my vote. If you really want to make a professional scrapbook, then photoshop is the one to go. It has endless possibilities and the results are stunning. It takes quite long to get along with it, however. This is of course due to its complexity and the big amount of features.
Regarding apps for scrapbooking, I just found a great iPhone app on this forum yesterday. It's called memorabledays.
You can't really create a scrapbook for yourself there, but you can enter great memories from your life and it shows them to you in a beautiful way. I love it as it also reminds you on these days
