Digital Scrapbooking is Easier Than You Might Think

When you hear the term digital scrapbooking, do you shake your head? Do you think, I could never do that? It is too complicated. I am not that computer savvy. I will have to stick to the normal, old fashioned way of scrapbooking? If you do, you may be wrong, really wrong.
Digital scrapbooking is getting easier and easier every day. There are many websites that are helping even the more or less computer illiterate people learn how to add their beautiful and captivating photos digitally every day. Plus, there are corresponding websites and software programs that accompany many digital cameras that we can buy. These corresponding programs and websites that cater to our cameras make digital camera even easier.
Digital scrapbooking is also a great way to edit our photographs. We resize them. We can crop at images we don't want. We can take out those awful red eyes. We can add new backgrounds, we can add music. We can build pages that say and does many things, some things that even our imaginations haven't conceived, yet.

The first thing you need to get started on your way to becoming a digital scrapbooked is to have a digital camera. You can buy these in many different price ranges and in many different styles. You can buy digital cameras with zoom lenses, with voice recorders, etc. If you are new to digital cameras, you may want to stick with the basics.

You can avoid using a digital camera, by using a scanner to scan your photographs into your computer. You may also want to use a scanner along with a camera. Scanners are great if you find clippings out of the paper that you would like to include in your digital scrapbooking pages.
As for the types of scrapbooking pages, you can find some pages that are pre-colored and pre-styled. Then all you do is upload the images you want to the page. These are the basic and easiest pages to use. Yet, some people find these to be a little boring.

Stick with some of the easiest pages, in the beginning. You can always try your hand at harder and more complicated pages later.
