In Topic: Type of computers recommended for Digital Scrapbooking

24 July 2016 - 11:07 PM

I have a Mac laptop, but when I scrap, I usually plug my laptop in at home on my desk and use it more as a desktop... As in, it's plugged into a 5T mirrored EHD and a large second monitor; I scrap in Photoshop (PS6) on the large monitor, while keeping my Finder with photos and supplies open on my laptop screen. I use a Mac only because when I started learning with Scrap Girls in 2007, my DH had Photoshop for Mac but not PC. Not only did I have a learning curve for digital scrapping, I also had to learn to use a Mac. I was very frustrated for about a year! My DH is a computer networking guru, so now... We've got our photos and my scrap supplies backed up from the 5T EHD to 2 other EHDs that I rotate every week, taking the one not in use to work with me, just to store it somewhere other than our house (in case of fire or theft). And this past week, my DH decided to have a third backup to Carbonite. It probably sounds crazy and overwhelming, but take it all a bit at a time, and don't fall into the trap of thinking that your layouts have to be perfect, or that you have to scrap entire photo sessions and events all in order. Scrap what and how you feel like scrapping, and learn digital techniques as you go... You can always redo layouts later, after you learn more!

I will do a desktop background...  I've been thinking for a long time that I'd like to make one, haven't in years.

I have several photos that will go with this color palette... I might have to scrap several layouts!  Here's one... Beautiful Smile
