I'm a former pc/ CM StoryBook Creator user and have recently purchaced a MacBook Pro. I'm lookiNg to purchase an new digi scrapping program as SBC isn't Mac compatible. I'm concidering Photoshop Elements from the app store....Can I create photo books on PSE? what are your thoughts? Also, are there any CDN Digi scrappers on here? if so, where do. You get you photo books printed?

Hi and welcome! PSE is a very robust program and you can do a lot with it. It isn't a photobook maker - in other words you will have to learn how to use the program to make photobooks, but it is possible.
7 years to get here... So now what?

NO! DON'T BUY ELEMENTS FROM THE APP STORE!!! There are things that don't work with that particular version - actions specifically - and maybe more. I'm not sure why the don't work, but I do know that if you're going to purchase PSE, either download the most recent version from Adobe directly, or purchase the DVD. It's a great program by the way, just takes a bit of time to learn. Yes, you can create photo books in PSE - I've actually never done one in PSE but was actually thinking about using iPhoto to make one. I have done numerous layouts though, and those I have printed at Costco... in Canada!

I'm a fellow Canadian, there are many of us around! I would also recommend going direct through Adobe vs the App store. But as Dianne mentioned it's a digital program not a photo book maker. I print books with Blurb and Shutterfly with great results. I don't know of a Canadian supplier.

Another Canadian here....
Like the others - purchase the program directly. I just got PSE11 for $49.99 - awesome price - even paying the full $149 is well worth the money. You are not limited to using elements, etc. from one company and you can create your own stuff for free too.
I love PSE and use it to design my layouts.
I design 12x12 layouts and have them printed as a 12x12 photo at Costco
I design 8Ã‚Â½ x 11 layouts and have them printed in photobooks.
I have used PhotoBookCanada, Blacks as well as Shutterfly and Picaboo.

I am in Canada as well. I print my photobooks at Shutterfly. I have pse but have not used it yet. I got version nine on amazon.com for $11 a month ago. I have sbc but am still trying to learn it. I just picked up my digital studio from Stampin Up and am really enjoying it. Much easier than sbc. Good luck!
