Hi everyone.. :D

Im new here and also interested in photography. On top of that, I am also interested in Scrapbooking my photographs. I've found the web presence is lacking for a place to meet local scrapbooking enthusiasts. Therefore, I've set up an online community just for scrapbooking!

If you want to explore scrapbooking or are a scrapaholic.. do check it out ya?

This is not a commercial site.. juz a hobby site.

A scrapbook is simply a decorated photo album—but it’s different from a photo album because it preserves something more than just the photos. A scrapbook includes journaling (telling the story behind the photos) as well as memorabilia (tickets, certificates, letters, etc.). You might have a family album as well as smaller theme albums for vacations, home improvement or a baby’s first year.

:) do check out the webbie ya!

I'm interested... how do you do it in software? Or what software you use for those scrapbooks in your site gallery?

basically there are 2 types of scrapbooking. the paper/traditional type where you get down and dirty with physical paper, cutting and pasting with your photos, adding embelishments to accentuate your pages and writing your journaling. there's also a whole 'concept' of photograph archival which essentially is the main idea of scrapbooking [before the era of digital cameras]. u know? photos and albums that will turn yellow and age over years.. well thats how scrapbooking came about.. photo archival as one of its priorities. so only acid free and lignin free papers are used.

The other type which is the current new wave.. is digital scrapbooking. that is essentially the same as paper scrapbooking but using a photo editing software to create your digital layouts.

im personally a photoshop cs2 user. :) but you can essentially use any photo editing software! elements, paint shop pro, photo impact etc..

A little OT but....

When I was clearing out my cupboards a few months back, I stumbled upon my old collection of stamps and phonecards.. Just wondering if anyone still collects stamps and phonecards...
Sadly, both seem to be getting phased out slowly.. 'Stamps' these days are just normal printed labels and payphones are seeing less use due to cell phones.. *sigh*

Hmm... For Mac users iPhoto oso does a beautiful job as well. But its standard templates though.
