I use Adobe Photoshop CS, but for those who cannot afford, use GIMP! It's almost as good as Photoshop, but completely free. ^_^ Make a Google search, and you'll find it!

I'm quite new to digital scrapbooking . I received CK Scrapbook Designer Platinum as a gift. The box said it came with all of these backgrounds and elements. For some reason I can't find the decorative papers and I'm just having overall issues with the program. I was hoping that someone who uses the program could assist me. Also, are they any sites worth recommending that you can find interesting backgrounds?

Update - Add me to another list... I recently started using Lumapix FotoFusion 4, Enhanced version and am really liking it. I still use PSE for photo editing but seem to be doing all my lo's with FotoFusion. You can download a trial version from their website but finished lo's are watermarked until you actually purchase the program.

Ok, I just ordered the Adobe Photoshop elements
newest version i think it's 0.5, and I'm really excited about it! Had to order the CD as i'm still using dial up, and it would take forever to download.....Can't wait to try it out. Just hope I can figure it all out!!!

I mostly use Photoshop CS and used Photoshop before starting to scrapbook but I will dabble digitally with almost anything. I've done older pre-scrap designs with Illustrator too. I love to work from scratch so I rarely, if ever, use premade digital papers or elements.

I've also tried out and finished a digital scrapbook with the free software from Creative Memories. I did like it because I *got the album done*!

Have you or anyone tried PublisherPro? It's put out by Nova, the same company that does Scrapbook Factory Deluxe, Photo Explosion, and more. Supposedly it is a full graphics creator and editing software, similar to the full version of Adobe Elements. Anyone familiar with PublisherPro? I could sure use your thoughts, experiences, and suggstions. Thanks a million.

Heya!
You can add me in on your list too. I use both CS2 and now am getting into ACDSee Photo Editor.I know there aren't too many of who use that one yet, but it is a breeze to get the hang of. I like being able to use both programs. CS2 is nice for the extras, but you can't beat Photo Editor for the ease of use (and the price-- it is much less than any of the PS programs!)
So if anyone needs help with that one, feel free to pm me.

I saw the first page list and will add that I do use Photoshop CS and I am also a "swinger". I work on a PC mainly right now but my preference is Mac so anyone with Photoshop or Mac questions is welcome to ask. I don't have the most updated Mac but anything up to version 10.1 I could handle.

I've added this to my fave topics because I want to stay in touch with other digiscrapprs & digidesigners.

i think i responded to this a while back, but have learned a thing or 2 since then. i use photoshop elements 4 and have really grown to love it. will soon be getting photoshop CS2 as well... have heard it does some extras. I used paint shop pro for awhile and liked it, but didn't have all the cool brushes. Also have Lumapix (the basic version), but if you plan on printing your pages, i would suggest getting at least the intermediate version of this. The basic version will not save a page in a resolution any higher than 72. when i got my shutterfly, all of the pages that i used Lumapix for were blurry and/or pixely. =(

Hi,
I just got here! Great site and lots of sharing going on. I am new at scrapbooking and when I found out about digital scrapbooking ..........well, my D drive got loaded up real quick! So far, the only two programs I've used are Print Shop 15 and Scrapbook Flair. I was awestruck to see how many programs were out there in the beginning Post in July. I will be a follower now that I am here. Thanks for the wonderful "freebies" too, they are beautiful! Carol

My programs are all over the place.

I use Microsoft Digital Image because it is really easy to do.

I use Photoshop Elements 5 when I want a little more control, and also for learning how to make my own elements.

I use Photoshop 7 when I feel like having my ego dropped 2 notches & a headache (only kidding).
I was doing really well with PS7 and learning quite a few things..........then the twins came along and I stopped that because I can't think with no sleep.

Unfortunately, I now have a comfort zone, and PS7 just isn't in there. One of these days, I hope to start learning with it again.

Be careful with some of those programs made just for scrapbooking......... their saving properties leave a lot to be desired. I tried printing after I made some pages using a couple of those programs and I wasnt happy with the results.

Now that I have these two programs that I only use, when I have a hard bound book printed, the quality is wonderful.

I use PaintShop Pro.
I am a raw newbie to scrapbooking ... I've done exactly 1 page and still need to do a couple of tweaks on it (red eye fix for one!) now that I've seen it printed full size :-). However I am somewhere between intermediate to advanced as a PSP user, as I've been working with web graphics and sigtags for several years using it.

I downloaded SCRAPBOOK FLAIR a couple of months ago when I first started scrapping. I'm not happy with this program, but, it may be my computer is slow with this one program. Anyone else have comments on this one? I'm real interested to hear what y'all have to say about it.

Thanks.

I'm still making friends with PSElements 4.0 but it seems to be working out. I tried Scrapbook Flair and it was a great program to get started but the problem I found is that I was limited to their designs. It's great, though, to begin with and then see if you even like digi before investing too much in other software.

I'm downloading Scrapbook Flair now just to try it. I have a scrapbook cd that came with my printer but you can only do so many pages and make them look nice with some of the backgrounds and graphics that it has. I'm going to try the scrapbook flair since i'm new at digital scrapping!

I use Luma Pix-Foto Fusion verion 4 just about all the time. I love the simplicity of the program and I'm still learning all the things the program will do. I started out useing Adobe Photoshop, but got too frustrated trying to learn how to use it. At least with Foto Fusion I could get busy scrapping faster. I will continue trying to learn Adobe Photoshop while working along with Foto Fusion.

I use PhotoMix. It has a couple of quirks but page layouts are amazingly easy and fast. You can buy nice inexpensive digital backgrounds and decorative elements to add to your pages.

I also use Photoshop Elements to adjust and edit photo, but Photomix works best for the actual page layout.

Hello,

It is very interesting to see all the programs that people use to do LO's. I am not much of the creative type, that is my wifes department. My question is how do you keep track of the thousands of pictures. I have tried a few of the programs listed like Elements and started to tag my pictures to look them up easier, that was great and all but when I archive them to DVD all my tags are lost

I have been looking for a program that will allow me to move the pictures to DVD for storage offline and still be able to find them via thumbnails in my library. My wifes biggest complaint is that she has trouble finding the pictures because there are so many.

Moving them to neat folders based on the event is very time consuming when you have 3-4 events on memory stick.

I am 100% in the dark about digital scrapbooking , but I'm interested in having a scrapbook made at shutterfly to document my daughter's first 12 months. I want to make it very simple, but have it done before christmas for the grandparents.

I have photoshop and am pretty adept. Does that mean I can buy elements that I see on digital sites and use them in photoshop? Or do you need to use a specific digital scrapbook program? Feel free to PM me with any advice.

I don't see this on the list and it's incredible for digital scrapbooking and even regular scrapbooking (when photos and/or other design elements) are digitized.

Professor Franklin's Instant Photo Effects 2 is available for download for a free 15-day trial. And it's only $59 and worth every cent. I had a previous version and even though I'm an intermediate/advanced Photoshop (CS2 and CS3) user, once I've dealt with the actual photo itself, Instant Photo Effects 2 is easy and spectacular at readying it for presentation.

What's especially nice about this program is that while you're in an effect, you can try various ones on your photo. But once you leave that effect, the last one you applied stays with your photo, allowing you almost endless possibilities. For $59 it's worth every cent--especially for a digital scrapbooker!

Another wonderful program that allows you to turn photos into artwork is Corel Painter. But you will need a Wacom tablet to get the most out of the program. Also, it's not a real easy program but Lynda.com has a wonderful tutorial on how to use it. They, too, give you a free 30-day trial and during that time, you can view any of their hundreds of tutorials on most popular (and even some rather obscure) programs on the market.

There are a number of effects you can do in Painter that are simple as pie. I'll post one I did from a photo I took of my friend and her dog. She absolutely adores it and I was just playing around. The "artwork" is far nicer than the original photograph. Combined w/ Photoshop, this is a powerhouse!

BTW, I uploaded the original photo, the Corel "pencil sketch" and "woodcut" effects (only a couple of mouse clicks to create) and then the frame I put the woodcut in using Professor Franklin's Photo Effects 2, to my gallery. Photo Effects is great for edges and framing--especially for the price. If you have Photoshop, once you create an edge or frame in Effects, you can pull it back into Photoshop for tweaking if you like. But usually that's unnecessary.

I'd recommend the latest you can afford. (Even Photoshop upgrades don't come cheap unless you qualify for an educational discount. I bought all my software before I graduated for huge savings.)

Selection is one of the toughest things in Photoshop and in CS3, there's a "smart" selector tool that saves lots of time, as well as a vanishing point tool that's fabulous!

To learn the use of the tools, Adobe has a free site and you can sign up for 30 days free at Lynda.com. They have excellent tutorials on just about any software you can imagine. I liked it so much, I sprang for the $25 a month for regular membership (although I haven't had much time lately to take advantage of it).

I'm a Paint Shop Pro 11 user. Still learning, but quickly finding that most tutorials that are for Photoshop can be used with PSP. This makes me happy.

Hi,
I just recently got CK Scrapbook Designer and am completely lost. Were you able to get the hang of it? Any tips or ideas? I heard it was supposed to be fairly user friendly for digital scrapbooking newbies...

Thanks!

I have: Photoshop 7; PSE 5; HP Image Zone (which is actually ACDSee) and Roxio PhotoSuite 5.0.

I use the Image Zone for making panoramics; have dabbled with both PS & PSE, but have not yet learned how to create digital LOs. For 99.9% of my photo editing, I use the Roxio. It's not nearly as versatile as Adobe, but I've been using it for 4 or 5 years and it meets nearly all of my needs. Except I can't use it for making LOs - it's strictly for photo-editing.

I hope to one day work up the courage to experiment with making LOs in PSE - have tons of free downloads (digital papers, embellishment, frames, etc), but have never used them...sad, huh?!

I brought Scrapbook Factory Deluxe vs 4. I round up getting PSE6 only because I want to do Scrapbooking for a business and I can only use Scrapbook Factory for personal use.

If you want to us it for personal use only it seems to be pretty good. Expecially if you are beginning.

Hi,

I use SBFD 4.0 and so far I really like it. I'm new to this and found it's an easy one for me to maneuver around.

I use Creative Memories StoryBook Plus and it is AWESOME!!! Any questions , you can go to my website: http://www.mycmsite.com/sites/cathygertner
and go under SHOP PRODUCTS and then look under digital scrapbooking . It is wonderful and I have used many programs that were MUCH more expensive and not as user friendly. This program was MADE JUST FOR SCRAPBOOKERS.
