Organizing Digital Photos for Scrapbooking

Digital cameras are becoming more and more popular as time goes by. As a scrapbooker, I find it easier to store and organize digital photos then regular photos. This is how I organize them.

After loading your photos onto your computer, create folders. Copy and paste photos by date and event. I like to even take this a step further and copy and paste what photos I want per layout. So when itíŽs time to scrapbook, I simply look at my different folders and decide which one I want to work on. I then look to see how many pictures there are and figure out a layout that would work well. I take in consideration different sizes I could print the photo, with regular film processing you caníŽt do that. I then print out only the ones I want to work with. With digital photos, you can crop, trim, or change color tints on your photos. Think black and white photos would look better then the scattered colored photo? No problem, simply got to your photo editing program and play with the coloring. If the subject of your photo is off center or something distracting is in the picture, use your photo editing program to crop or zoom in.

Digital photo is the way to go! They are so much easier to work with and take up only computer space!

I have been scrapbooking for over 7 years now. I have made several scrapbooks for different clients. I enjoyed doing that been I am more focused on getting my work published on websites and magazines. I have been on 2 different design teams, the most recent being for http://www.scrapbookpal.com.
