Digital scrapbookers are becoming more popular – and more expensive – with the arrival of digital photography and video, says football writer Roberto Calabria
Digital scrapbooks are becoming increasingly popular, with some people using them as a source of cheap storage, says a football writer who used to keep them for footballs.
Roberto Calabrese writes in this month’s issue of Football Italian that digital scrapbooks have evolved into a form of photo-album.
The problem, however, is that, unlike physical albums, they can be difficult to maintain and they are not always available on the same day as the original photo.
“The reason is that you have to keep your scrapbook in a separate storage locker, in order to keep the contents safe,” Calabresey said.
“You have to pay a monthly fee for storage, but you don’t have to worry about whether your scrapbooks will stay that way.
Calabress said the first scrapbook he ever used was on his iPhone 5. “
But it is also difficult to use the scrapbook on a mobile phone or tablet.”
Calabress said the first scrapbook he ever used was on his iPhone 5.
He said he was tempted to use it as a scrapbook for photos of himself, but decided to keep it for his children.
He keeps a scrap of his own photos on the scrap book.
Calabresea, who started a digital scrap-booking business in 2003, said the main drawback was that it was too bulky to use in the pocket of a sports shirt or jeans.
But he added that he found it easier to use a digital image of his photos to keep in a pocket than to put them in a folder.
The issue of scrapbook storage has become a bigger issue in Italy recently.
On Wednesday, the Italian Interior Ministry announced a crackdown on the use of digital scrap books.
The ministry wants the owners of digital files to pay fines of up to 1,000 euros for each violation.
Calabrio, the author of several football guides, said scrapbook owners were increasingly finding it difficult to keep their scrapbooks in a storage locker.
He suggested that it would be better to have a “compartment” for them and to store them in an external locker.
Calabeto, who works in a newspaper in Naples, said he would keep his scrapbooks on a laptop in a “laptop drawer” at his home, where he keeps his photographs.
“It’s a matter of personal choice,” Calabeti said.
He also suggested that scrapbook users who want to keep a digital copy of their scrapbook should use a computer to do so.
Calabiros scrapbook will be kept in a plastic bag with a label, he added.
He hopes that a law will be passed to regulate the use and storage of digital photos.
“If we do not do anything about the misuse of scrapbooks, it is only a matter for speculation,” he said.
