Imagine you are on holiday with a mega size memory card and you are snapping away. You want to capture each moment, building, sunset, sunrise and treasure every moment. Great! After arriving back home you realize with a shock how many photos you have. What do you do with all of them? Do you keep it on your hard drive, back it up on DVD´s, store it off-site or on an external hard drive? Do you look at your photos on a regular basis or do they get ´lost´ somewhere in the digital world?
I was curious to know what other travellers do with their photos. To satisfy my curiosity, I did some research.
Many people use Flicker, Photobucket and Picasa to store photos. But there are other sites where you can create and print your own travel photo book, canvas wall art, desktop plaques, storybooks, cards and stationery, wall decals, calendars and many more. You could even earn some money in the process and have fun!
Here is a list of websites that I have discovered in the process. Maybe you have come across some of them but for me it was a first.
People have some interesting ideas and use photos in very creative ways:
1. Desktop backgrounds
2. Christmas gifts for family and friends
3. Annual calenders
4. On line galleries with links to friends and family
5. Selling photos
6. Mouse pads
7. Digital photo frame (We want to buy one for my mother-in-law who lives in Russia. It is even remote controlled)
8. Scrapbooking (A personal hobby)
One traveller said that his best photos go on the website, the very best go into a travel book and the best of the best go on the wall. I like his style!
What do you do with your photos?
