This software is called My Memories Suite, and it is nothing short of amazing, especially if you love to take pictures and share them in a fun and creative way. There are so many features that we’ve barely scratched the surface of what we can do. Needless to say, the kids and I are going to be having some serious fun archiving our pictures, being the picture-happy family that we are. This is a collage we made of our trip to Arizona.
Because this scrapbook software is so powerful, it is worth it to take the time to learn about the wonderful features, of which there are more than you can imagine . For this reason, we found the best thing to do is start simple and then toy with things until we felt comfortable being more ambitious.
Starting out is really easy - you can either use one of their ready made templates that are included with the program, or you can access numerous other choices online. If you’re feeling really creative, you can even create your own template from scratch.
We made this other collage of our flight in grandad's plane with Uncle P. What an amazing experience.
Best of all, the program is simple to use. It’s as easy as dragging the photos onto the template, and the software does the rest for you. You can decide how pictures go on each page, add captions or any sort of text, and there are background, font, and color choices. You can also re-size the pictures and rotate them directly on the template and then save the changes. The end result is a beautiful photo album of your best loved pictures, all custom designed by you, the artist.
The software is designed for making albums or scrap books, and there are options to add narration, music, and even videos and multimedia presentations for iPods or to make DVDs. You can also modify the file size and format in order to share your work with family, friends, or the blogosphere.
AND, as I mentioned, I will have a copy to give away, so check back early next week.
Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to the good folks at My Memories for introducing me to their software.
