Epson America Inc.

Epson America Inc. today announced the debut of its "Digital Scrapbooking Tips with Epson" DVD series, providing scrapbooking enthusiasts with demonstrations of creative computer tips and techniques for enhancing digital photos and scrapbook layouts. Hosted by Barbara Kotsos, senior marketing manager and digital scrapbooking guru at Epson, the two-volume DVD series is a compilation of segments from the popular "Scrapbook Memories" television show on the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS). Each volume features one season's worth of 13 short segments providing inspiration, instructions and ready-to-create projects for consumers to turn their home computers into easy-to-use scrapbooking tools.

"With this DVD series, we are continuing our ongoing commitment to educating the scrapbook community about new digital technology tools and techniques that can be applied to scrapbook layouts easily at home," Kotsos said. "We have received an overwhelmingly positive response to the segments since they began airing on PBS over the past six years, so we are pleased to provide the segments from two recent seasons in a handy two-volume series for consumers to use as an at-home reference guide and inspiration to embrace digital technology as a valuable scrapbooking tool."

About half of the segments feature Kotsos demonstrating how to perform specific techniques using Adobe(R) Photoshop(R) Elements tools, including computer screen shots of each technique, allowing viewers to easily follow along at home, as well as samples of completed scrapbook pages and projects that use each illustrated technique. The DVD contains PDF files that contain complete step-by-step instructions for how to accomplish each technique shown. Consumers can insert the DVD into their PC DVD-ROM drive to access the PDF files and print them for future reference. In addition, some of the segments demonstrate how to create fun scrapbook pages using templates available for free from the Epson CreativeZonesm Web site (http://www.EpsonCreativeZone.com). Other topics covered in the series include:

-- Combining Digital with Traditional - Highlights how to combine both digital and traditional scrapbooking techniques to create easy and unique layouts, including sample scrapbook pages created digitally and then enhanced with traditional supplies and embellishments to make the pages multi-dimensional

-- Making Dreamy Photo Effects - Demonstrates how to give any photo a soft, dreamy effect using Adobe Photoshop Elements; the technique gives images a professional look and makes them the focal point of any scrapbook page

-- Sport-Themed Pages - Displays fun and creative 12"x12" scrapbook pages using ready-to-print sports-themed pattern pages and elements from the Epson CreativeZone Web site; scrapbookers simply add photos and text to personalize the layouts or create their own layouts with the color-coordinated pages
