I love to take pictures, and I take a lot of them. I also love to create beautiful, colorful images for my blog. I know that many of my favorite bloggers share this passion for photography and beautiful graphics, so I think many of you will appreciate what I am going to share:
Confession: Though I have some photo tools that I have been using, I get frustrated when they won't do everything I want them to. I have also become victim to multiple memory cards and overloaded hard drives that diligently try to store all of my photographs, but end up disorganized and stuffed with outdated memories.
My family's photographs of vacations and life events are piling up, and I have relatives that kindly remind me how behind I am in sharing them. Agh! I haven't made a lot of photograph books with Snapfish or Kodak, because I feel limited by them, and don't have hours on end to sit on their website. Though I used to do traditional scrapbooking... there is NO WAY I have time for that now. I have been stumped for years on what to do.
We live in a digital age. There's only so many digital picture frames you can own, and only so many places you can put printed pictures (and printing them is such a pain!) I need a digital photo software that will work for my blog, my business, and my family.
Are you digging the images I have put up on this post so far? I have had so much fun making them, and a whole new world of managing my photos and creating beautiful images and collages has opened up!
I am very excited to introduce a brilliant digital scrapbooking product, My Memories Suite from MyMemories.com .
This software allows you to import your photographs and design either stand alone pages or entire albums. It is easy to download, and has a very user friendly interface. It comes with a nice variety of papers, templates, tools and embellishments to make hundreds of options available for you to design your project.
You can make photo albums, DVD albums, calendars, interactive albums, and convert your images into .jpeg files , all on up to three of your own computers. Now I can work on creating beautiful albums and collages with my photographs at home or on the go (that is huge for me!)
MyMemories.com is also a thriving online community and resource for all of your digital scrapbooking needs. They have helpful tutorials, a fun blog that highlights contests and designers, an online store that offers a huge array of additional kits for your software (some are free!), and a printing service for your photobooks and calendars. Just check out their Facebook page and see how much fun people are having with this!
