What do you do with your digital pictures?

I thought this was an interesting question sent in by one of my readers:

Here’s a question I’m dying to know the answer to…

I imagine you have tons of personal pictures (of you and your family). What do you do with all the pictures you take? Do you put them in albums, keep them on your computer, or have them framed? I have so many pictures myself and don’t know what to do with them all!


Take care,


Well, I blog and put pictures on Facebook as soon as I can! Then, I keep them stored on my computer (sorted by month or event) and a couple times a year I take a trip down memory lane and look at a bunch of old pictures. I upload tons at a time and have them printed for my photo album…I still love sitting down and looking at pictures in “hard copy.”

As for pictures of Adriah, I put together a digital coffee table book of her first year and I’ll probably do her second and third year in another book. I’ll do Leyton’s first year in the same model (cause I am second born and fairness is very important to me!) Then, I’ll continue making books for the family. I plan to give the kids their first year books and keep the rest for me…I’ll let them look at it when they come home to visit!

Finally, when I take a picture that makes me smile every time I look at it…I blow it up and frame it!

What do you do? OR better yet what do you wish you did with all your digital pictures.

I also save mine on my computer by year and event. I also back them up periodically on CD’s in case my computer ever crashes. I have printed hard copies for my first two children’s scrapbooks for the first year. I think that I will do digital scrapbooks after the first year. I also send the CD’s to my mom’s house to save in a box in case there was ever a fire at our house. It is unlikely that both our houses would catch on fire at the same time. (Before I had a digital camera, I sent the negatives to her house).
