If you haven’t tried “digital scrapbooking,” now may be the time. Today, most of us use digital cameras. They allow us the freedom and liberty to take pictures at will–but we can end up with a ton of photographs. Getting them all into a scrapbook can be a challenge.

If you have, or are doing digital scrapbooks,THINGS JUST GOT BETTER! In the past, digital scrapbookers have pretty much had to rely on their own ingenuity and resourcefulness to get their digital masterpieces into a hard copy physical form.

Shutterfly.com, an Internet based social expression and personal publishing service, has the printing solution for you. It will allow you to upload layouts into high quality Photo Books . . . with full bleed or die cut window covers.

Shutterfly’s DSP (Digital Scrapbooking Solutions) is fulfilling digital scrapbooker’s desire to transfer their stories from digital to a “HARD COPY” “PHYSICAL FORMAT.” All you have to do is upload your digital layouts–drag and drop them into a Photo Book. There are easy to follow step-by-step instructions. Detailed upload specifications, design templates and related guidelines are there too to help you in the process of uploading and organizing your pictures and printing.

They offer four (4) book formats:

Both the Memory Book and Story Book come with a personalized photo cover.
