*Contest Closed*As anyone who knows me or views my blog, you know that I love taking pictures, especially of my beautiful baby girl. I have tried in the past to do the traditional scrapbooking, but I just can't get myself to dedicate the time to sit down and do it. I have often wished I could find a way to do it on my computer so I don't have to worry about taking the stuff out and then cleaning up the mess afterwards...enter My Memories. I was recently contacted by My Memories and asked if I would like to review their software. Of course I jumped at the opportunity, and I am so happy that I did.
This is software is so versatile and easy to use! With this software you can share your scrapbooking pages any way you like. You can print the pages, you can make a book, you can make a DVD, or you can even share it online. One of the biggest benefits of digital scrapbooking, in my opinion, is that you can include video and music to liven it up. Having a baby, there are just some moments that can't be fully captured with picture, like those exciting first steps. With My Memories you can include the video clips to get the full effect of these great moments. Now, I know you what you are thinking, yeah so I can share it easy enough, but it can't be that easy to make, but it is!! This software allows for even the people who are not very computer literate to be able to design a beautiful scrapbook. If you can get your pictures on the computer (and know where you put them) you can put those pictures into a scrapbook. MyMemories Suite v2.0 comes with many predesigned pages so that all you have to do it double click where the picture goes and choose the picture you want to place in there, how easy is that?
Here is a page I create in less than five minutes. (Ok it only took me longer than that, but only because I could decide what pictures I wanted to add).
When I wanted to convert the file into a JPEG to share it, it gave me several size options to choose from, including a web/email size that isn't too big so it will load faster.
For those of you who want more customization, you can do that too. There are lots of different themes for backgrounds and add ons to make your pages just what you want. You can also purchase more themes for very reasonable prices. Here is a page that I designed on my own just very quickly, there are many options to choose from, but I just stuck with a very basic, simple design.
