    Re: scrapbooking on linux

    well there's one more here!

    ...and I'm going to be spreading the word about Linux, and about scrapbooking/card making so hopefully in time there'll be a few more!

    In fact, if anyone wants to get together to put out some tutorials on scrapbooking with Gimp etc, it would be great - new site in development

    there are tutorials on scrapbooking with the GIMP. Here's one
    http://scrapbooksgonedigital.blogspot.com/
    I've been using it to scrapbbok with and while PSE is easier I can do the same thing with gimp....it just takes more windows open. I have bunches of backgrounds downloaded though that are 12x12 that I need to resize to 8x11...if anyone knows an EASY way to do that I would love to hear it!

    With these programs can you make blinkies and sigs?

    Re: scrapbooking on linux

    I have to say, personally I'm not a great scapbooking fan, but it seems the best for what I'm after. Just somewhere where I can re-create how I fill out my notepads purely because;

    a) It's costing me a fortune in notepads. I find I'm filling a 150 page notepad a fortnight; sooner if I'm on a rampage.

    b) They take up a lot of room once you get over a certain amount.

    To be able to achieve the same in a program on linux would be fantastic! But I would also want it to be possible for 'beagle' to be able to search the files so that I can find whatever I need to quickly. (As I'm sure other people are aware, flicking through pages and pages of notes to try and find one particular thing just takes way too much time!)

    Re: scrapbooking on linux

    I have only just started getting into the whole - make scrapbooks and pretty collages thing, but I thought I'd just add that Picasa3 has a very nice "make photo collage" option.

    It also has some other fun little options and basic editing functions.

    The Linux port is actually the windows version utilising WINE - so it's a little ugly initially. But it works well and they have included a lovely menu editor which lets you change the default menu colours and fonts (lovely touch, I thought).

    I love Scrapbook, but when I Installed Ubuntu 9.10 and with it come Firefox 3.5.5, then cannot Install Scrapbook on Firefox 3.5.5. Will wait when it will come possible.

    When I scrapbook I use Xara it allows for mixed media and has some nice filters.
