Digital Scrapbooking Made Easy
My very smart friend Francie Black from eWisdomToGo.com is here with us today, sharing cool techie tricks to make digital scrapbooking easier.
Did you know you can make family scrapbooks directly from you iPhone, iPad or iPod without having to transfer your photos to a desktop computer or website?
Don’t worry. You are not alone.
Most people are unaware that you can save your precious memories in these beautiful printed photo books with just a few taps on your mobile device.
These photo books are made directly on the iPhone (or iPad, iPod) with Apple’s iPhoto mobile app. Since most of us use our smartphones as our primary camera and it is with us almost everywhere we go, we have hundreds of precious pictures on our mobile device. Turning the photos into scrapbooks is faster, easier and more convenient than traditional scrapbooking.
Have you started a traditional scrapbook that you haven’t finished? If you are on vacation, at a wedding, or capturing baby’s “firsts” you can create these photo books no matter where you are. You don’t have to be at home working at your table to make these beautiful albums. With the iPhoto mobile app, you can create these scrapbooks on an airplane, train, car ride, on the beach or by the pool!
No scissors or glue required!
These also make great gifts for family members and friends. I have a friends wedding coming up and I am taking pictures of the bridal shower and the wedding. I am putting the photos I take directly into a photo book that I am giving them as a wedding gift.
To see iPhoto mobile app in action watch the ABC News segment I did on the topic.
Every Mother’s Day, I receive one of these albums from my husband as a present. It is my most treasured gift that I receive all year. We also print a slightly modified version for the grandparents. We use the same book but simply change the cover photograph to a picture with the grandparent’s and kids together.
Digital Scrapbooking Albums Are Excellent For
- Baby Books
- Travel Books
- Sr. Year and Graduation
- Annual Family Album
- and so much more . . .
To create these digital scrapbooks you will need an iPhone, iPad or iPod; and iPhoto Mobile App ($4.99), downloadable from the App Store.
Once you create your photo book on your mobile device you will send it directly from your mobile device to Apple for high quality printing. The two size options using the mobile app are 8” x 8” starting at $24.99 for 20 pages or 10” x 10” starting at $39.99 for 20 pages. The maximum number of pages is 100. Additional sizes and options are available for the desktop application.
I cherish my photo books more than anything I own. Making the digital scrapbooks is fast and convenient with iPhoto Mobile App allowing me to save and share priceless moments.
