Thread: New, new, new

  1. New, new, new

    Hi there
    I am new to digital scrapbooking. I tried to make a scrap page 12x12 using PSP and a template. It took me most of the day. I was not encouraged......... I hope surely I am doing something wrong as it almost froze up my program. I am looking for a place to learn and then to participate. Thanks for allowing me to join.

    Thanks I am looking to learn a lot. I am finding the program PSP9 went too slow with the larger template I am also wondering if I need to upgrade to something with a little more "horsepower" Nice to meet you !

    Hi and welcome!!

    I think you will find that any graphics programme will run slowly if you don't have enough RAM. For psp, pse, or pscs, you will need a minimum of 1Gb of RAM in your computer to be able to work on 12x12 pages successfully.

    The other alternative to adding more RAM is to scrap at a smaller size such as 8x8 which will enable psp to run much more smoothly. When using a template, you can simply re-size it to 8x8.

    If you are comfortable using psp, I would stick with it - the jump to pscs is very big - I only use PSCS when designing (which doesn't happen very much anymore!!) - the psp programmes are more than adequate for scrapping and even designing.

  8. Welcome, Sherrie, to a very friendly and supportive digiscrapping community. You will love it here.

  9. Thanks Shana you are probably right it could use a good housekeeping I am sure. I will check out those tuts thanks.
    Thanks TwirlyJoy I have no idea how much RAM I have but I have been know to "packrat" quite a few things I did get another drive and then an external I make tags at a couple of places and have decided recently I am going to move most of my tubes off to CD's to free up some space. I'll check the RAM situation (hubby) and get back to you. I think going to the 8x8 is probably the best idea. BUT what I did was I bought the cutest little scrapbook for my grandson's pictures and not knowing what size to get I got now I feel obligated to fill Figures. Oh well I look forward to getting to know all of you this really seems like a fun place to play.

  10. Hi Shari thanks for the welcome, we must have been posting at the same time. I look forward to learning so much here. Everyone is sooooo friendly !
