Scrapblogging

Posted in Uncategorized by Simon Bisson on April 2, 2007

I’ve been playing with Scrapblog, a rather nifty tool for producing online scrapbooks.

It links to most popular web photohosting sites and imports your images ready for use, and uses a Flash UI to lay out your presentation pages, with custom photo frames and text – just like a scrapbook or a photo album. You can resize and rotate images. You can add extra pages to Scrapblogs as you go, so you’re not limited by a single page – and of course published pages aren’t locked down, so you can update and edit them any time you want.

The UI is impressive – it’s currently built in Flex, so does a lot more than your average Flash application. There’s an Apollo port out there too, so you won’t be limited to working through web pages.

I wouldn’t see this as a replacement for Flickr or any other site like that – this is more a way of quickly selecting a group of images, and then sharing them with friends and family who wouldn’t normally spend time delving through a Flickr photostream…

Here’s my Scrapblog

My one quibble: for some reason the application defaults to US keyboard settings
