Last week Creative Memories announced that it will no longer sell or support their mac scrapbooking Software sbcStudio. This was not a surprise as the program never quite worked right and they could not make it Mac Lion OS compatible. So I have been slowly transitioning to Photoshop Elements over the past couple of months.
But now it is official and I am faced with the fact I have a whole bunch of projects (albums) I need to save before I can no longer access them. This made me think. What if YOUR digital scrapbooking software was no longer around? Do you have your albums backed up in a common format?
I am currently opening all of my sbcStudio projects and exporting them as jpgs. Why jpgs? Because they are a common format that will be around for a long time and can be opened by a large number of programs. I did think about recreating the pages in Photoshop Elements but even then I am dependant on a single program to open them.
