I used to use Microsoft PictureIt! and I loved the simplicity of it. I had to buy a new laptop and can no longer use it because the program is too old.

Are there any other "simple" scrapping programs out there? I loved the fact that I could open papers and elements and just drag and drop. I only use JPEG and PNG files.

I know that 99% of the scrappers use Photoshop, but before I commit I was wondering if there was anything else out there that people have tried.

Photoshop Elements is a much easier, more simple version of Photoshop. You can get it for a lot less money than the full version of Photoshop. It will be fine for just dragging and dropping, but also if you decide you want to do a little more, the features are there for all kinds of fun digital stuff!

Maybe I'll bite the bullet and give it a try.
Thank you.

I do remember PictureIt. Didn't use it very long though. Wasn't happy with it. I use PSE now.

I loved Picture It! I used it for many years, including when I first started digi-scrapping. A few years ago I got a Mac, and had to drop Picture It, which forced me to explore other options. I started playing with Photoshop Elements, and was surprised at how much easier it was to use! Just had to get used to the differences, but I can do so much more with PSE, if I want to.

I started with PictureIt when I first started incorporating digital stuff into my paper layouts - over 10 years ago...crazy! I've used Elements ever since and love it. You can download a free 30 day trial from Adobe to see what you think before you buy it (I tell everyone that - such a great way to see what you think before you commit!)
