Hi and welcome!  I can't believe this is your first try at scrapping - your layout is gorgeous!

You did a fine job posting, too and I see you already have comments on your page...

What I usually do when I make a page is type the products I used and their designer right under the layout notes, for instance where you wrote "old photo of my mother in law and her sister".

Other people put their credits in the EXIF properties, but I can't ever rememer how to do that!

Love your layout--VERY nice!


To put information into the EXIF data, in Photoshop, click File, File Info.  On the Description tab, type your supplies into the Description window.  You can separate information with SHIFT + Return for line breaks, or Return for paragraph breaks.  Sadly, at least in CS4, the window is only two lines high, and can't be made taller; you have to keep clicking the arrows to move up and down.  I suspect the instructions are similar in other versions of Photoshop and PSE.  Hope this helps, and welcome to Scrap Girls!


Scrap Girls does not have a tool to make this fast, BUT, Christie VanDerWall used to be on the team here, and you should be able to find her blog on the internet, SpeedScraps, I think.  She has free "actions" which automate supply tracking, (putting data into EXIF also,) file saving in multiple sizes without messing up your PSD, and other handy tools.  They are indispensable for me.
