I told you I would go looking for programs and I have started.
Today, I received a newsletter from [tag]Scrapbook.com[/tag]. In it was information regarding this program called [tag]FotoFusion[/tag]. It is a [tag]digital scrapbooking[/tag] program. It has three different levels you can choose from. They are Scrapbook Essentials for your everyday scrapbooker, Enhanced for those that are a little more involved with their photography than the average person, and Extreme for professional photographers. The Essentials costs $39.95 with the others quite a bit more. They do offer a free trial that you can use for two weeks. You can even choose to try it without the free trial, but if you try to print anything it will have a watermark on it. The free trial allows you to print without the watermark.
I have tried out this program and as in all programs there is a learning curve. The program is really simple to use. You will just have to learn how they have things set up and how it all works. I would say it is easier and faster than PhotoShop Elements which is what I now have installed on my computer. I really enjoyed working with this program. I think if you are just beginning it is great and if you are an experienced digital scrapper, you will enjoy the quickness of it all going together.
I recommend that if a program offers a free trial take it. Use it for a few days and see if it is compatible with you and how you work. Never buy anything you are not totally sure you are going to use and enjoy.
