Ok, ok I know some digital scrapbookers LOVE this program, it is the best thing in the world. I say not! I say it is a time hog and that all the flipping time I’ve wasted trying to use this program I could have been actually scrapbooking!
Do not be lured by the promise of ease of use, do not underestimate the amount of time it takes to create the catalog, maintain the catalog and good heavens back up the stupid thing. Do not under any circumstances be lured by the promise of it being user friendly. The concept is great, but for someone just starting out in digital scrapbooking you can easily (read that as I did and now I’m annoyed that I did) get sucked into spending SO much time tagging and sorting that you stop scrapbooking!
Keep it simple scrappers! Use a basic file system that works for you. Sort your stuff in a way that makes sense for YOU! Me I’m going to go the route of themes, Christmas, Birthday, Garden, Travel, etc. If I get really bored maybe I’ll label the stuff in Picasa one day, but for now. I’m done with that mess..I just want to scrap!
