I decided to start this blog because so many people ask: I’m interested in digital scrapbooking, WHERE DO I START?
I like definitive, solid answers. I don’t want people to HAVE to buy a book, a tutorial CD, or a website membership to jump in. I want some starting info to be out there, FOR FREE, for those who are curious about digital scrapbooking and want to learn how to start. I have a huge compilation of resources, both here and at jenstrange.com -- everything you will need to know about digi-scrapping. I know it's a lot of information, but be patient and take your time to look around - you'll figure it all out!
I will focus on Photoshop in this blog, because it’s what I have and what I use. It’s a very universal program and I think is most widely used. (I have Photoshop 7.0, but I don’t do anything complicated in it, so people with Elements or 3.0 or whatever should be ok.) In Photoshop there are about 3 (or 10) ways to do any one task. Different people have different preferences for steps to take, and most of what I’ve figured out is by playing around and experimenting (asking “what if I did this?” and seeing where that takes me.) I’m not a Photoshop expert by ANY means, but I want to share the joy of digi-scrappin’ and what I’ve learned so far.
* please note that this was all written in 2005, and is meant to be a static blog, more like a book than a blog. But the basics of Photoshop don't change, baby! It's all still relevant. :)
