Digital Scrapbooking with Apps
With the iPad pro, release suddenly we had an increase of topics about creating full digital scrapbooking layouts mobile. It’s not new we all know project life app is here for a while now. But project life doesn’t have layers and it’s not that easy to use outside things and they have a specific pocket style.
It’s not new, we all know project life app is here for a while now and with it you can create pocket scrapbooking pages from your iPad or iPhone. Project life doesn’t have layers and it’s not that easy to use outside things and they have a specific pocket style.
What if we want to use our digital scrapbooking kits and supplies?
Today we have several apps that can help us create anywhere we want and now we can even use full digital scrapbook templates with our iPad. That would be with an app called: Affinity Photo.
I received many questions about this app and digital scrapbookers wanting to use this app. So my first set of tutorials will be related to Affinity Photo, but more to come because Artsy Scrapbooking is not tied to traditional layouts we all know that.
Affinity Photo so far is the first app that really came to functionality really close to what you’d do with Photoshop Elements not quite so powerful of course as Photoshop, but I’m really impressed with some qualities as:
- import psd files
- layer styles and basic drop shadow
- import abr brush files
Affinity, however, is not focused on composite and is heavily focused on photo editing, so most of the things are organized with that intention. The app has a lot of potential, I believe as different kind of users outside photo editing use the app affinity developers will make changes. It’s good to point out that the app is not cheap, it’s now at the time of this blog post $19.99, an investment if you consider apps are regularly less than $7
The first video I did was on my Facebook page I did a live video, do you know, by the way, I’m doing weekly videos there?
In this first video, I talk about digital scrapbooking with apps and give you an overview on how to navigate with app.
The other 3 videos are on my Facebook group + written instructions.
I also have a post here and pdf guide on some apps for artsy effects.
Enjoy the first one here :
I plan to do more videos on the group and at my facebook page with apps. I always try to use apps for both android and iPhone platform but unfortunately, I don’t have an android to teach and also most apps are iPhone only.
Join the group and the fun also with other tutorials and freebie I have there.
