A lot of entertainment writers and journalists are directly or indirectly connected to photography. Some, like me, have gone further to adopt it as another source of income. I got my first camera in 2009 and today, it has not only bought me a better and more advanced camera, it has also equipped a photo studio – LC & Cheeks and a long list of clientele.
When I started, I learn to understand basic and advanced camera settings and how to package clients’ pictures. The game has gone beyond the conventional printing of 5×7 pictures and pasting to a 50-page album. At the end of the day, you’ll probably be restricted to a maximum of 200 pictures and where you have an album with more pages, your client will have to deal with the weight of the end product. The way forward was to adopt the collage photo-book.
The photo-book invention posed a new challenge. It was hard to get an easy, time saving and flexible digital scrapbook software. I tried different types – I don’t want to mention names, but I know a lot of photographers or people who work with photo editing software would know the names. As someone who gets a lot of photography jobs, I needed a solution to enable me deliver jobs on time.
Now I have the best scrapbook software ever… it is called ‘My Memories Suite’. This amazing digital album maker is made in America and I am fortunate to be one of the first to have it in Africa. I thought ‘MyMemories Suite’ would be as cumbersome as the ones I’ve used before but the first time I sat on it, I didn’t need further tutorials to find my way around it. Anybody can use it.
It has a collection of designer templates for different occasions and pages to choose from. It also gives you the advantage to add more pages and choose random designs from any part of the suite. You can create your own design and also save them as templates. Its auto fill option is magical in a way that you can actually select and drop all your pictures into a template and it will arrange all of them into the spaces.
My Memories Suite is able to define your album’s trim area and guarantees that your printer will not cut the vital parts of your photo-book. You can edit pictures while creating your collage; you can also edit template elements to express your creativity. There are text and word art options to tag your pictures or further explain the pages… especially for wedding and holiday albums.
There’s so much about MyMemories Suite than this lousy review – yes I said so! And how best can a story be proven if you don’t experience it yourself? Therefore, The Jarmzone is giving a lucky person an opportunity to have My Memories Suite digital scrapbook software at no cost.
