RE:RE:RE:Love my photobook Reply

    Nice book!! I love the bright colors on the cover.

    As a side note, you do not need to purchase Photoshop Elements (or any other program) to digiscrap. I actually have the full version of Photoshop, but have found it to be cumbersome when I'm just trying to complete a book. I'm not familiar with Photoshop Elements, but I know that with Photoshop original, layering photos/papers/elements in a 12x12 300 dpi can create a HUGE file. (like 30+ MB) Multiply that by the number of pages in your book, and that's a LOT of room on your hard drive. Even saving them as jpg files, they are still large files to upload for your book.

    What I do is download digiscrap elements from websites like the ones that were already mentioned, and then I upload those as "photos" into a photo album on artscow. You can create your book right in the artscow photobook designer, and you can use the same elements (papers, embellishments, etc) over and over. You just insert the digiscrap elements like you would any of your other photos. That said, I know some people will prefer the features in more advanced photo editing programs (like Photoshop filters, many more fonts, feathering, photo editing/touch ups, etc).

    Maybe you want to try that method and see if you like it before buying a program. It works for me!

    Hi Carrie -

    Did you design your layouts outside of artscow, save them as .jpg and bring them into the book? I use Photoshop and plan to create pages with it and bring it into the book. Did you need to leave an edge for binding I am having trouble understanding the technical specs info on the site. If I knew how much space to leave in photoshop it would be helpful.

    Thanks in advance for your help - your book looks awesome.

    Mindy
