The software does take a minute to get used to but once you get the hang of it, you can do so much with this program! It comes with several "digital paper packs" that make it easy to customize your layouts with coordinating paper and embellishments. Or you can start from scratch, which is what I did, and use elements from different templates. I made a couple pages and exported them so you could see what I did with the program.
I really liked the textured backgrounds and adding shadows to my embellishments to make them look like they are really on paper. You have so many special touches that you can add including music, narration, videos, and links to the internet. The book can be shared in so many ways. You can print out individual pages or whole albums at home. You can also export them to be printed professionally. They can also be turned into a slideshow or put onto a DVD.
There a lot of opportunities that this software gives you to display your photos. You could print out individual pages to create art to be framed. The software has the ability to make calendar pages that you can fully customize. It would also make for interesting blog posts by displaying photos in a totally unique way. If you run out of ideas with the paper packs provided with the software, you can also download other packs from MyMemories.com. Some you have to pay for but some are completely free!
