    Default Albums or Computer

    So who has actually printed off photos of their children and put them in albums!?

    Or you will never and just leave them on disc?

    Or both!?

    Default Albums or Computer

    Since we've had the children, I make a photobook through Snapfish every year before Xmas with selected photos from the year.

    We send a copy to grandies as a Christmas present and we keep a copy. It's a nice reminder to us of each year we have as a family. It's also a lot neater than having a heap of printed photos which I never get around to putting in albums.

    Otherwise, our photos are stored digitally, on our computer and through Snapfish.

    I've printed some for the wall, but not an album. I have most stored digitally.

    I had printed out a heap to start an album then my freakin MIL comes over and takes half of them and all the best photos too!!

    Its nicer to look back on an album and over time discs get misplaced

    I do a family snapfish photobook each year. It takes forever and I hate doing it, but I love looking back on the albums. My DS also pulls them out regularly to flick through.

    Each year I do it I try to find the most embarrasing ones of the kids that I can - I can just see their future spouses having a giggle over them in 30 years time !

    Both. It's one of the few things I'm a bit OCD with! My photos are all saved and organised on the computer but most are also printed out - looking at photos on the computer just isn't the same as an album! I love digital cameras and the freedom to take heaps of shots but the downside (from a storage perspective only) is that since DS was born nearly 6 years ago I've filled almost 10 300photo albums, captioned and catalogued. I often fall behind but did a big catch up just before DD was born 4 months ago so reasonably current at the moment. I use snapfish for the prints and wait until they have their half price print offers. I also use snapfish to make photobooks for special occasions (just did one of all DS's kindy artworks and photos from last year) and a family calendar every Xmas.

    I love pulling the albums out and flicking through and realising how much our little family has actually been up to :-)
