Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
If you scrapbook, technology is your friend. Digital cameras, scanners, imaging software let you do things you could’ve never imagined before and share your work more easily with the people you love. In this book, longtime digital scrapbooking trainer Lynette Kent demystifies all the equipment -- and shows exactly how to use it to build more creative, personally rewarding scrapbooks.

How do you design more visually appealing pages? Choose the right scanner, the right inkjet printer -- and make the most of them? Capture better images, and use Photoshop Elements’ special effects and filters to make them stand out, brilliantly? Use clip art, create beautiful text and backgrounds? Kent explains it all, step-by-step, with full-color examples. One touch we especially like: tear-out “recipe cards” that summarize key tasks in handy, quick-read format. Bill Camarda, from the February 2005 Read Only
