A Good Digital Scrapbook Template Can Make Your Layout Pop

A digital scrapbook template is a professionally designed page layout design that you can use to create your own computer scrapbook pages. Most templates allow you to drag and drop your photos into the design and add text. Typically elements such as page backgrounds, graphic embellishments and photo place holders can be moved, resized, deleted and copied. When selecting a template, be sure it has high-resolution (300dpi), print quality graphics so you can print your book at best quality. The major benefit of using a scrapbook template is that it enables you to create a beautiful digital scrapbook page much faster without having to be a graphic designer.

Using Scrapbook Templates in Scrapbooking Software vs Photo Editing Software

There are many websites that offer digital scrapbook templates for download. While you can find free templates, you usually get what you pay for. There are many beautiful templates that only cost $2 or $3. Just do a Google search for digital scrapbook templates. Typically templates are in .psd format and you can open them in photo programs such as Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Corel Paintshop Pro or ACDsee Photo Manager. The disadvantage of using these programs is that you have to pretty much know what you're doing with the software and you'll probably need a tutorial or two.

My Memories Suite Scrapbooking SoftwareI prefer using software dedicated to digital scrapbooking, such as My Memories Suite. This software was specially developed for digital scrapbookers and includes four discs with embellishments, background papers, and page templates. All you have to do is drag and drop your photos into the template pages and add text if desired. To add to your collection, you can also download additional templates that typically cost around $5 or$6 for a set of 8 template pages. The templates are designed to be used with their outstanding software, which makes it very easy to create stunning scrapbook pages and photo books in just minutes. You can also use elements and embellishments from their templates in other programs such as Photoshop Elements, although you would need to copy them from where they reside in the My Memories Suite software into the other program.

My Memories Suite has 1500+ backgrounds and 1300+ embellishments included, plus a new Resource Gallery that lets you drag and drop pictures, embellishments, shapes, backgrounds and more directly onto your pages. Read review of My Memories Suite here.
