Scrapblog

scrapbloglogo.jpg

I admit it, ÖI like creating scrap books, or at least I used to. That was back in my teen years when there was no email, no instant messengers of sorts, no digital pictures. Back then, I would spend hours decorating my Smemoranda* with the name and pictures of my momentary crush, my favorite band, actors, etc. Gosh, I would even write letters and create personal birthday cards!

All my handcrafting talent slowly diminished as I started using the computer more and more and lost interest in spending hours doing by hand what can be achieved a lot faster on a computer. The thing is that, if the application you are using is good and entertaining, you might be able to send that birthday card a lot faster, but in the end you might spend twice as much time looking for it or creating it without even noticing.

Thatís exactly what happens when you use scrapblog; you will easily spend a couple of hours creating your digital scrapbook and not even feel it.

Scrapblog is a Flash application that allows you to create digital scrapbooks. The intuitive drag and drop functionality allows you to add pictures, text, video and audio onto a background (which is also editable), and once itís finished, you can print it, burn in onto a DVD, or export it as a photoset to Flickr.

You can choose to make your scrapblog public or private, and share it via email and/or RSS feed. You can also rate and post comments to other peopleís scrapblogs and easily embed them onto your own blog. And last but not least, you can participate in the scrapblog competition and win a digital camera.

Via Techcrunch.

*Smemoranda: When I was in High school in Italy, pretty much every student had a Smemoranda. The Smemoranda in nothing more than a school diary containing some comic strips, which is supposed to be used to write in your homework, but ends up being used as a sort of scrapbook to be shared with your friends, who at times also contribute to the content of this not so private diary. In Italy Smemoranda has been around since 1979 and is a cult object.

Angela:

Hi...as a result of your post I scooted over to scrapblog and created a page. However, I was very sad when I realised I could n't export it as a flickr photoset, print or burn it. Is this information from a press release giving features from the upcoming version rather than the current version? Thanks for clarifying this.

camilla:

I read that information on techcrunch, but I assume those feature haven't been built into the application yet. Let's keep in mind that scrapblog is still a beta version.

That said, thank you for the extra info; when I was playing around with scrapblog I didn't pay attention to the missing features.

Jo:

Smemoranda is still a cult object and a "must" for high school students in Italy ;-)
