Hopefully that picture you thought was perfect, actually came out super.
If it didn't, and you have a digital camera or a scanner, you may want to consider using a computer graphics program to correct the faults and cleanup the images. Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Elements (a less expensive, easy-to-use version of Adobe Photoshop) and Paint Shop Pro are some common programs.
But remember, this is scrapbooking. So, you'll be able to cut out strangers, unrelated objects and empty space from the pictures.
Now choose the best pictures to include in your scrapbook. Ask yourself: Which six or seven pictures best depict the event, show emotion, engage the viewer and tell a story?
Once you have your favorites, it's time to consider how many pages you want. For example, you want to make two pages from your Halloween party. So, you'll probably want three to six pictures.
Now get creative with your materials:
The last step is to enjoy your hard work. I hope you'll like the experience as much as I do. Happy Scrapbooking!
