Jasc Paint Shop Xtras Scrapbooking Edition Series

Are you ready for digital scrapbooking? It's the newest craze...

If you enjoy scrapbooking you know that you can never have enough papers, sentiments, word art and embellishments. JascR Software has just what you need with their new product called Paint ShopTM XtrasTM Scrapbooking Edition series. This new addition to their line of digital imaging software is great for both traditional and digital scrapbooking.

The Xtras Scrapbooking Edition series can be used with any of the Paint Shop family of digital imaging software (Paint ShopTM ProR, Paint ShopTM Photo AlbumTM, Paint ShopTM ProR Studio and Paint ShopTM Power Suite). Each edition contains professionally designed 3D scrapbook page layouts packed with background papers and coordinating embellishments. These layouts are ready to use. Just add your photos and print.

But you are not limited to the layouts as the designer, Michelle Shefveland, created them. You can change them any way you like to meet your needs. You can rotate, move, resize and recolor every element in these layouts using the editing tools in any of the Paint Shop software. Next you can use the program's photo editing features to crop, resize and enhance your photos before you place them into the layout. Then you are ready to add your own words or journaling with the program's text tools. You have your choice of fonts and special 3D affects such as embossed text or a drop shadow.

When you have completed your masterpiece you can print the layout directly from the Paint Shop program. The layouts come in both letter and 12 x 12 inch sizes and fit nicely into traditional scrapbook albums. You can also email your scrapbook page to family and friends, burn it to a CD/DVD or post it on your website.

But that's not all. Each individual background paper and scrapbook embellishment from the layouts is stored on the CD as a separate image. You can mix and match any of these elements to design your own digital scrapbook page. You can also print the background papers and embellishments and then add them to your scrapbook pages in the traditional way.

If you are new to Jasc's Paint Shop software you will find it very user friendly. Each Xtras Scrapbooking Edition includes a trial version of Paint Shop Pro and Paint Shop Photo Album. Also included is an easy, step-by-step tutorial on how to use the scrapbook page layouts in the Paint Shop software. There are seven versions in the Xtras Scrapbooking Edition series.
