Technology seems to have taken over many of the initially manual day-to-day activities. One of such activities is scrapbooking. The fine art of hand-made scrapbooking is a leisure activity that brings so much creativity and joy to many collectors. However, a man-made scrapbook can be quite bulky, with many photos, pop-outs, stickers or ribbons. This problem has been solved by the advent of scrapbooking online. Below is a look at a new technology for online scrapbooking.
Digital scrapbooking is the latest and fastest-growing trend in the world of scrapbooks. It offers the perfect blend of photo memories and computer technology that takes the process of scrapbooking to a whole new level. Rather than making entries on a hardcopy scrapbook through cutting and pasting photos, the process utilizes the latest technology to easily build excellent and colorful photo entries. A user can easily upload photographs from a camera and edit them, creating exciting layouts that combine fun embellishments and unique graphics. This results in a personalized memory that the user can easily share with others through the internet.
As the world becomes even more mobile-oriented, the hobby of scrapbooking becomes available virtually. With the help of devices such as laptops, PCs, Smartphones and tablets, creativity is much easier. Nowadays, mobile devices come with high-megapixel cameras as well as apps for editing photos such as Instagram. This makes making an online scrapbook much easier, even when a user is far away from home.
As much as instagram offers various basic frames and filters to include in a photo, it is not the actual scrapbook look that users are looking for. Anyone trying some online scrapbooking still needs to upload an app alike Coolibah. This free app is quite easy to use, offering more than 17 kits as well as hundreds of assorted themes from which to choose. It enables the user to create their own layout with the use of texts and frames, and add drop shadows to images. Users can also create unlimited pages and albums, and view images through a slideshow mode. Scrapbooker for the iPhone is another useful app for scrapbooking. This app allows the user to create a list of equipment inventory and supplies, thus avoiding buying any equipment in duplicates.
Perhaps the biggest advantage of this digital scrapbooking technology is that it is much more affordable when compared to the man-made process. If the user downloads free apps from their Tablet or Smartphone, they can enjoy even better scrapbooking right at their finger tips.
