That's another good point that I meant to bring up. My wife and I review our printed photographs, kept in albums, now up to 6 very large volumes, but we never, ever, EVER review anything on the computer. I have 32,000 images on the computer and all the ever do is sit there, unlooked at. If it is not printed, in my household, it never gets looked at besides the first time it seems.
Thanks for the reply.
Tom - wonderful story and very illustrative of changing times too. I think (speaking as an old f**t) that those of us who grew up with film and went through the entire process of shooting, developing, enlarging and printing B&W's or finding decent labs that could properly process colour film tend to approach photography differently from the younger people who have fully embraced modern technology using any image capture device available.
I find the sharing via say, facebook, very refreshing as it keeps friends in touch visually as well as verbally but I don't have the inclination to show my life to the entire world.
I have happily moved from film to digital because I have no interest in wet processing and the lousy quality fo commercial processors where i live puts me off completely. However as in your case the downside is that my computer is full of images that i don't look at and those that should be deleted clutter up the space.
With good discipline I could make decent digital albums that could be viewed on my TV set where the result would be as satisfying, to me, as a conventional album but the key word is discipline.
