    I just finished listening to the show and loved it. I’m a listener since the 1st episode from the 1st era :) but usually do not comment. But today I HAD to! I’m soooo glad the PL is available digitally. I bought last year the digital clementine edition and this is what I’m using mainly. Then added some turquoise elements in the mix. But… I use them hybrid :) I print and use. The minute they became available as digital I bought because whenever I went to buy physical products they where out of stock (Europe). And just yesterday I bought the baby edition (even before hitting the shelves!!! yay!!!) and planning to use it the same way, to finally make a complete baby album for my daughter. And I bought the Kringle & Co collection from AC because I can’t wait when they will be available around here in flesh lol. My point is that I’m more than happy that more and more companies that we love their physical papers make them available digitally for many reasons. E.g. run out of my favorite paper? I’ll print some more. Can’t find it?(<–why not is a whole other story) I'll print some. Will I use them only hybrid? I don't know. I'm not a digital scrapper but I like that now I have the choice. Sorry for the long post (I was super excited!) and keep up the good work! Happy Holidays!

    Question: has anyone used one of those services where you box up all your prints and send them off to be scanned? Any recommendations? I think this would make a great Christmas present for my parents (ok, for me too) but the thought of packing them all up and trusting them to come back makes me really nervous.

      Amy, I just received my disc and original photos back from Scanmyphotos.com, and they did a phenomenal job! I’m so pleased! I had bought a Groupon to try them out, and I’m so glad I did. I’m going to send in my wedding negatives next to get scanned. We didn’t have a professional photographer at our wedding, so I’m hoping to at least end up with better prints than what I currently have. Good luck! :-)

      Amy, I was very nervous about sending my family heirlooms off for scanning but I was never, ever going to get them done in a million years on my own. I’ve placed several orders with Scancafe to scan my originals and they have done an excellent job.

      • Amy in TX says:

        Thanks for your recommendations, Leslie and Susan! I am really excited to get these photos digitized. They’re sitting in a box in the basement right now so anything I can do to get them into the light of day is great. Plus, I can’t wait to share them with my kids (despite the wisecracks about my permed hair).

    Have you noticed that Kari’s pick isn’t listed? I did!

  4. Heddy says:

    I LOVE Project Life! I’ve been doing it digitally for a few months and I have to say that it’s my new favourite way of memory keeping.

    The pocket-style system really appeals to me because it’s so easy to complete. Visually though, I find that the PL “rectangles” float on the page because they aren’t actually in a physical pocket. I hope Becky or another designer adds some separators to the product line – like a narrow line grid or dotted grid or stitched overlays. I am using some stitched overlays from The LilyPad right now, but would love more variety to add to my future pages.

    I haven’t listened to this show yet, but I wanted to share this article that was in the New York Times. http://nyti.ms/TDbYtX

    The article gives some tips on using the iPad to edit digital photos. I thought the listeners would find it interesting.

    I am not blog-savvy, but I did figure out how to use Feedly based on (I think Peppermint’s?) pick a long time ago! That’s the only way I know how to read blogs without going to each website. Is there a way to subscribe to the comments for the Digi Show in Feedly? I can’t figure it out. Thanks!

    • Peppermint says:

      Yup, you have to use the URL: http://thedigishow.com/comments/feed/

      So in Feedly, you’d click on that compassy looking dealie on the upper right side of your screen (I don’t know how else to describe it) and then paste that URL into the search field at the top. It’ll take a while for the comments feed to pop up below – at least it did for me. Click on it and then after the entries show up on the page you can choose the “+add” button that should be next to the headline at the top.

      For other feed readers you can just paste that URL into their “add feed” box.

    The Slice app is awesome. Great pick!

    I have a random question. Why doesn’t the digi show have an affiliate link for Big Picture Classes? When I purchased the 4 Experts Bundle, I used the affiliate link for Paperclipping. Then I got thinking….all three of you have classes at BPC. I would love to see a kickback going to you instead of Paperclipping :)
