ScrapBook user research and quickie changes

Amidst all of the other areas we're working on, we decided we wanted to make some quickie improvements to ScrapBook, and thought we'd let you in on the latest.

ScrapBook, for those of you who are unfamiliar with it, is our photosharing tool. It's built off of Fotobuilder, another open source product of Brad's. It's a powerful tool with great tag support, and is a terrific way to host photos to insert into your journal entries. But we know we can improve its usability, so we decided to forage in the ScrapBook orchard to "pick some low-hanging fruit", as Frank likes to say.
