My Gallery I scrap with Photoshop CS6, but can help with older versions: PS7, CS2 & CS4.

You got lots of great answers, the main difference with the different programs has a lot to do with the cost of the software, I use PSE and I am quite happy with it I can do so many things and I learn more everyday! I create layouts at 12 x 12 and them print them 8 x 8 for albums, I have a kodak printer and I get great quality. Well I hope to see you around, Welcome to Scrapgirls!

There are several good scrapbook programs out there. The only thing I will add to the above suggestions is that whichever you choose, make sure it can save your page in a universal format (like a jpeg.) This never occurred to me when I started. It means that if you used a program with a proprietary format, then the only program that can open your pages and print them is THAT program. Luckily I print out almost all of my pages anyway and only lost a few, but I know that problem has caught others off guard.
Now you know why most people here use PSE, Photoshop, PSP and Gimp!
Have fun playing with whichever program you choose, and remember that there are lots of people here happy to answer any questions you will have!
