Scrapbook MAX! is totally flexible. You can add photos to your pages from anywhere, and just about any way you want to (or could imagine it being done!).
The "recommended" way it to click Photo from the Object menu (or choose the photo on the toolbar. You can then select from all of the images on your computer.
Of course, Scrapbook MAX! also supports "drag and drop". For example, you can go to your "My Pictures" folder off your "My Documents" folder on your desktop, find the photo you want and simply drag it onto your page and drop it where you want!
A little known feature - You can even drag and drop from your web browser window. Go ahead and try it with the photo shown below. Click it to see the full size image, then click it, hold your mouse down while you drag it over to your page and then release your mouse button. Voila!
Scrapbook MAX! 2.0 is here!. It's simply better digital scrapbooking software!
