    Default Scrap-booking software

    We have literally boxes of old family photos (dating back from the pre-digital era), and even more digital pics.
    We would like to build up a scrapbook of pictures for our children, so that they can have a keepsake of their family history.
    This should be available in soft copy (PDF/HTML...??), as well as being "printable" for say a coffee table-type book as well.

    There seem to be quite a few free programs available for download (Windows).

    Has anyone done something like this?
    And what software would you recommend?

    Photo printing places offer a service like this if you end up choosing not to do it yourself.

    i would purchase a quality scanner

    then scan in as images

    then save to your favurite cloud storage provider

    Organize the files into various folders: as in year or location or family member name

    then share these folders to the relevant family members


    As an added bonus you can then back up these files to an external HDD/SSD for redundancy

    Scrapbooking pictures into stories means so much more than just sending photos to all.

    Many moons ago (before we moved to linux) wife used Scrapbook Factory.
