Digital collecting with scrapbooks you can share
Crafting is a thing. It's a big thing, but it's practically by definition a big thing in paper rather than digital: you create books using your photos and your drawings and your artwork. There are entire crafting exhibitions and conferences where rows upon rows of firms sell a thousand different types of paper and tools from stencils to pens. Scrapbook Crafter 1.0.2 wants to recreate the appeal of crafting without the fire hazard.
iScrapBox 1.0 ships
Chronos has launched iScrapBox 1.0, an artwork management program for digital scrapbookers. The software allow users to browse collections, called iScrapKits, and then launch the image or artwork into a scrapbook application like iScrapbook or into Photoshop for editing. iScrapBox supports click-to-purchase buying of iScrapKits on iScarpbook.com and has numerous searching features for finding specific art. It can search images and kits based on keywords assigned to the art, search for dominant or secondary colors in the artwork and can filter images by artist, image type and color.
