Quick pages are an easy way to create digital scrapbook pages. A quick page is a pre-designed digital scrapbook page with photo cut outs for inserting your own pictures. Rather than assembling papers and decorative elements to create a scrapbook page from scratch, you need only plop your own photos into the design. Quick pages are distributed as single PNG files because the PNG format supports the transparency required for the photo frames.

This tutorial will show you how to add your own photos to a digital scrapbooking quick page using Photoshop Elements. I am using Photoshop Elements 6 for these screen shots, but you should be able to follow along with any version of Photoshop Elements or Photoshop, and many other photo editors that have a layers feature such as Paint.NET or the GIMP.

You can get the blank quick page used in this tutorial from the Quick Page Gallery.
