Exclamation Serif launches Digital Scrapbook Artist 2!

Hello everyone!

We’re delighted to announce the launch of Digital Scrapbook Artist 2, the fantastic new version of our award-winning digital scrapbooking software. Digital Scrapbook Artist 2 is the easiest, most flexible and cost-effective way for anyone to make beautiful, professional scrapbooks.

This amazing software transforms your photos and memories into wonderful, personal artwork that you will cherish forever. Digital Scrapbook Artist 2 brings you the usability Serif software is renowned for, an abundance of realistic embellishments and materials to use in your designs, and professional tools that won’t be found in any other dedicated scrapbooking program. Without question, it is the best digital scrapbooking software on the market.

If you aren't already a dedicated scrapbooker, you can always use Digital Scrapbook Artist to design greetings cards, invitations, postcards, and lots more! Anyone already involved with digital scrapbooking will absolutely love the new powerful tools that will encourage creativity and take their scrapbooks designs to the next level.

The new Digital Scrapbook Artist 2 features and benefits include:
  • Professional Blend Modes allow you to mix layers to achieve stunning results. For example, you can easily make a plastic button look like it’s made of metal or modify a photo so it looks like it is printed on hessian.
  • Ensure your photos are picture perfect with the built-in PhotoLab. With over 70 effects and adjustments, you’ll be sure that your photos look exactly how you want them to.
  • Put the finishing touch on your design projects or create amazing backgrounds using the new Stencils. Choose from the many included stencils or easily create your own unique patterns.
  • Know what you are clicking on with the Hover Selection Aid. This handy tool highlights the object underneath the mouse cursor so you can be sure you are selecting the right one.
  • Create a unique colour scheme for your project easily using the Colour Palette Designer. It’s the easy way to make sure you don’t have clashing colours.
  • Get started straight away with five free DaisyTrail Digikits worth over £10. Full of materials, embellishments, frames and more, these Digikits are a fantastic starting block for new scrappers and a great addition to existing Digikit collections.
If you haven’t heard of DaisyTrail, where have you been? It’s the home of digital scrapbooking and a great place to show off your scrapbooks online, meet other scrappers, swap ideas, and download free Digikits. And if you visit the DaisyTrail Store in launch week you can save even more with an early bird discount on Digital Scrapbook Artist 2.

Good morning, Dale

I was on DaisyTrail.com yesterday and it looked pretty much as it always has. However, clicking on your link brings me here.... quite a makeover but I suspect unintended.

Hopefully just a passing issue MJH, the link seems harmless and daisytrail looks fine in my browser. But the layout you attached is something I also see from time to time on many sites if the connection is a bit stifled.

Regards, Dale.

You forgot to mention that it's also a great place to get an early bird discount on the new version. Put that together with the voucher against future purchases, not to mention the kits included with the program, and you're practically giving it away to anyone who qualifies for the upgrade price!

After discovering Scrapbook 2 launching, I went to upgrade offers on Serif site as I had a former release 1.5 but there was no special price and I bought the new release at full price!
After installing it, I received a mail from daisy trail offering too late an upgrade for half price!

Or do what I did with WPX4. I got it in the mail (full price) on the same day a special offer arrived in the mail. I called up Serif sales and asked nicely for a credit down to the amount of the special offer, or take my full price version back. They credited my account!

There are other features too, such as AutoFlow which is great when working with photobooks (it automatically flows all of your imported photos into blank photo frames). There is a new options page for configuring the directories that DSA will load your asset packs from as well.

Upgrade is not an update and there is a new release in a new directory!
Maybe you are using a shortcut which is still pointing on the former release?

According to your other thread, DSA 2.0 is not installed on your computer. It has been downloaded, but not installed.

Your installation of DSA 1.5 should still run as it has, unless you have made changes to its installation.

Do what it tells you to do - run it. This will run the installation program. And please try not to get impatient with people on these forums who are trying to help you.

Mrs Peel is running DSA on a Mac.... I think procedures for installation are a bit different.

Yes, I know that, Marilyn. But from what she is saying, it sounds like she just isn't running when it asks her to click on run. I would have thought this the obvious thing to try next.
