Smilebox helps you share photos and create perfect scrapbooks. This is a simple application that will show you how you can easily create a scrapbook right on your personal computer or laptop. It offers thousands of templates that can be customized.

Step 1: Organize Photographs

When creating your scrapbook, you will need to start by organizing all your photographs. To make things simple, you should try and segregate the photographs according to particular themes and try not to create a chronologically ordered scrapbook. It is easy to organize particular themes such as Christmas, vacations and family reunions. It is also possible to create a scrapbook around the theme of your new baby or even business.

Step 2: Decide on a Style

It is important that you identify a particular kind of scrapbook and particular scrapbook size. Typically, an 8 x 11 inch scrapbook will prove to be very useful. Once you have chosen your scrapbook, you should turn to picking the right paper. Acid free paper is the best option.

Step 3: Crop Photographs

Next, learn how to crop your photographs which can help you remove the boring stuff from your pictures. It also pays to learn to mat the photographs as this helps to bring out a particular color in the picture.

Step 4: Share Your Work

With SmileBox, you have the option to either email, blog or print your scrapbook on your home printer. Once the you have completed the steps above, the option will pop up; you will have to decide how you would like to share your work.

Last but not least, if you are going to print out the book, pay attention to using page protectors and be sure to use the right kind of glue.
