Scrapbooking has advanced to the next
level meaning its accessories
also have improved in time. The advent of scanners, desktop publishing,
page layout programs, and advanced printing options make it relatively
easy to create professional-looking layouts in digital form. The internet
allows scrapbookers to self-publish their work. Scrapbooks that exist
completely in digital image form are referred to as "digital scrapbooks"
or "computer scrapbooks.
Early digital scrapbooks were created
from digital photos uploaded to an external site. Over time, this moved
to a model of downloading software onto your personal computer that
will organize photos and help create the digital scrapbook on your machine.
Digital scrapbooking has advanced to the point where digital scrapbook
layouts may be made entirely online using Web-based software. Users
upload their photos; create a digital scrapbook layout using a Web page
and digital scrapbook graphics.
