Scrapbook MAX 2.05 Released

"The new Scrapbook MAX v2.05 is billed as "the first digital scrapbooking software program to combine ease of use with an archival quality graphics engine". With this new version, users can bend and stretch text, and fill characters with patterns and images. Photos and elements can be accurately re-coloured with a colour-picker tool, and users have complete control over the angle, distance and colour of shadows. Additionally, a new eraser tool allows scrapbookers to extract people and objects from photos with precision, or add artistic blurred edges to photos and embellishments."

I've had Scrapbook Max on my "maybe review this someday" list for a while now, and I hope eventually I'll get to it. It's unfortunate that scrap booking has such a frilly, feminine stereotype to it. Anyone that's into digital photography is likely to have a strong "memory keeper" streak, and putting photos onto paper is a natural extension of that. I'm proud of the digital scrapbook I created of a vacation to Japan in 2008 (though this was my first such project), and I hereby reclaim the word "scrapbooking" for men everywhere so we don't need to feel ashamed of putting our photos into books accompanied by text and even, gasp, little graphics. :-)
