Here is the absolute fastest way possible to make a digital scrapbook. It involves using StoryTeller, as the book system and FotoFusion as the software to design it.

StoryTeller comes with its own software. For beginners who want to quickly turn photos into a book with minimal journaling, what you get in the kits works great, and is easy to use. All you do is drop photos into the pre-designed page templates.

Using this format, highlights the photos (over the page designs).

Here is how it works:
1. Choose a page size as either 5” x 7” or 8” x 10”, according to which StoryTeller size your are making.
2. Create photo collages that measure the StoryTeller’s page size.
3. Open the file with the photos
4. Create one page at a time, by selecting photos that you want on each page.
5. Once they’re chosen, either have the program do it automatically or drag and drop each photo one by one onto the page and adjust the size and position of each one manually.
6. You can then crop them, zoom in or out, do some basic photo corrections, and color and lighting enhancements once they are on the page.
7. You can also add effects to the photo frame – adding borders, frames or shadows.
8. Add text wherever desired, in the color and size of your choice. Click and drag to position it. Select fonts on your system.
9. To make the cover, there are 2 options – either use long paper and the software in the kit or just make another 8” x 10” or 5” x 7” collage and glue it to the front and back covers.
