Geek Out: What Do You Do With Your Photos?

Wow: According to my iPhoto count, I took about 5,700 photos this year — that's almost 500 a month! And that's not counting photos I took for work. As much as I'm a photography buff, I am also pretty social, and feel the need to capture all events (and even when your friends might look at you like you're a paparazzo, they'll appreciate it later when they have the photos).

And I don't just have a hallway full of framed photos to show for it; my boyfriend and I always play a slideshow on our TV when we entertain, so our friends can enjoy the old shots. It's my favorite way to use the photos I took, and I never have to sort through event photos for the "best" ones (though I do that too with my framers).

What do you do with your photos?

I keep them on a portable hard drive and make a slide show with the best ones mixed with videos on movie maker.

I print a few on my Canon printer and put them in frames, put some on my iPod (so I can easily show off my newest little nephew and great-niece) and I back up vacation photos on CD after I have prints made.

I catalog them in my computer to look at periodically but I don't display them. This year we made a lot of photo albums and I still have a few more to go with our first anniversary going out, but that is rare. My pics are a lot of scenery and stuff I see for work, some friends hanging out, and some shooting I have done for clients. Too varied to display everything.

I print the best ones, and share most others on the web. We have an old digital frame that we lost the charger for, but I always mean to fill it with photos someday :D

i email them out and share them with my family and friends but mostly i keep them stored on my passport and keep telling myself one day i'm going to print them out.

I have been considering lately when I move out on my own I only wanted to display images on a digital frame and only hang ART in frames. My mum is a pack rat when it comes to all things but especially never rotating pics in her frames around our house. I guess like you my family is thankful for all the pics I snap. The rest of my family never really took very many pictures compared to my parents but in their eyes a cell phone pic works for them. Not so much for me! I need my SLR to make the pics more memorable!

I make a photo book at the end of every year as a gift for my in-laws. We also have a slide show on Apple TV that plays when ever we have music going. I just got a digital frame (it was a gift) and now that has a small selection of photos on it as well. I am going to need to frame some soon as I need to get some stuff up on my walls, it however is very rare that I actually print anything.
