I take a ton of pictures on a weekly basis. No really. Like a ton. Before we left for Florida last March Jon and I burned all of our pictures off of our computers and onto discs for safe keeping; it took more than 10 discs.
Just from my laptop.
That I’ve had for two years.
However, I rarely have the time to upload them all to an online photo editing site, edit them, create a semi-generic collage…or not, save them, and then upload them again to a sharing site. It is because of this arduous process that few of these photos are seen by any eye outside of our immediate family, meaning me and Jon. What doesn’t make it, mostly unedited, to my Facebook album is rarely seen again….it’s sad really.
Recently 360PR offered members of it’s MomSquad the opportunity to try Smilebox, a desktop photo creation software that lets you quickly and easily create slideshows, invitations, greetings, collages, scrapbooks and photo albums right on your computer. With more than 1000 customizable and completely awesome templates to choose from, you’ll find inspiration in every section, I sure did!
Smilebox now also offers a new iPhone app so you can share your favorite moments with loved ones on the go as well. I’ve spent so much time over the last two weeks creating collages, scrapbook pages, and some slideshows that will make fantastic Christmas gifts for some lucky Grandparents. I love that with one piece of software allows me to do so much without forcing me to wait through my seriously slow internet. I don’t have to be online at all, I can just burn or print the creations straight from the program!
Smilebox gives you more ways to share: Facebook, email, blog, printing at home or to a store, and burning to DVD. Smilebox makes sharing photos with your family and friends easy, unique and memorable. And it’s not just pictures, oh no, you can turn home videos into lasting keepsakes that will become treasures for years to come.
Here’s a collage I made with a few pictures from BlogHer:

How do you share your favorite memories?
Disclosure: I reviewed this software in conjunction with a paid campaign with 360PR’s MomSquad. The opinions shared in this post about the program are my own and honest.
