Scrapbook MAX! Review

I have been playing with Scrapbook MAX! for the last couple of weeks. I wanted to get a real feel of the program, especially since I am a reseller and I am making my kits compatible with the program. I personally use Adobe Photoshop CS3 for my layouts and designs, so it was kind of fun to try out a new program. I use a Mac, and the software is only available for the PC - but I do have an Intel Mac - so I was able to install it on the Windows side of my computer and it was very easy to install.

This layout was created using SBM and my Snowman FriendZ Kit.


- You get lots of free digital supplies with purchase of the program.

- You can easily ANY digital supplies to your layouts.

- I like that the compilation of SBM formatted kits that you can automatically add to your SBM Gallery for easy access.

- I like that you can create a whole album - several pages - in 1 document.

- Drag 'n Drop Capabilities

- You can make fun slideshows with music of your layouts.

- You can customize your page sizes.

- You can get a free trial!


- You can't use brushes, styles, or actions.

- Unless you have an intel Mac, you can't use this software.

- Recoloring is really difficult to do.

- Only 1 drop shadow option.

- I miss having an eraser that I can just erase certain things off an image.

- No Advanced Photo Editing capabilities (like the healing brush in Photoshop).

- It's pretty basic, so designers and advanced digital scrapbookers would probably want to move onto something else like Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.

I feel that Scrapbook MAX! is a great program, especially for those that are looking for a quick and easy way to create layouts without investing a lot of time in learning a new program. I believe it is the best solution for those who want to quickly create simple and beautiful layouts, without spending a fortune on the software or frustration over learning a program.
