In an age and time where everything is turning digital, one may ask why traditional memorabilia such as
scrapbooking cannot be converted in to digital format. Others may oppose the transition and say “old is gold”.
And some others would prefer the good old paper scrapbooks to which they add their own customizations but they
will simply not find the time to sit at their writing desk or lie on their living room to be scrapbooking.
Therefore, the latter group will be compelled to switch to a quicker method, all in sake for the love of
Digital scrapbooking as it has come to be known is a form of scrapbooking that one can engage on the internet.
Typically, a website will provide a service in which users can create their own scrapbook on the website, under a
username and a password in which they could add photos, write ups and any other things that they want included in
Digital scrapbooking can seem like a huge leap for someone who’s always preferred the good old traditional sense
of scrapbooking, the smell of glue, the messy surroundings with hours and hours of contemplating. However, if your
sole purpose is to save time doing what you did a decade ago, then digital scrapbooking can save your day.
The advantage of digital scrapbooking is that you could crop without scissors so at the end of the day, there
will be no messy desk for you to clean which would have otherwise consumed a good ten minutes. Finding photographs
will not take as long as it used to with the traditional method as all your photographs will be stored digitally in
your computer which you will have categorized in to folders.
File names can get messy that is why different operating platforms offer a preview of pictures, so you will know
which ones to choose at a glance. Also, you can now do away with the messy glue as the “upload and attach” options
are all that you will ever need to insert photographs in to your digital scrapbooking venture.
As far as the fun involved in digital scrapbooking goes; you could become as creative as you like within the
given options on the scrapbook. Also, you may want to make digital scrapbooking a family activity or something that
you do together with friends. Not to forget the fact that digital scrapbooking can become an enjoyable pass time
for kids and adults alike, when one puts in the effort needed to learn the little basics involved.
So if you are open minded about technology and if you are able to give it a chance in your heart, knowing that
technology will one day catch up to offer you the same experience as it already has, you will love spending time
digital scrapbooking as it has many experiences on offer.
