Re: [genphoto] Re: Storing CDs
- Exactly right to say 'whatever works' because printed sets of picture
collections are my goal. 300-600 dpi images usually have to be printed one
page at a time unless the originals are small snapshots. For your
hypothetical example, I'd put a wedding party photo with the groom's family.
Slide slows and lengthy genealogy scrapbooks sorted by date are more for my
own reference than display to others.
Most of my e-mail contacts are interested in printing pictures in family
book projects or charts, not just collecting image files. Photo charts with
three pictures per person are very interesting displays at local meetings.
More DVDs made today. One brand does not seem to be as good as others,
especially near the outer edge. Useful capacity is well below the 4.7 GB

- The small email images I was thinking of are the unidentified ones I
send to distant relations, asking if they know anything about them ...
most of the people who want print copies get a CD full of images, it's
easier than email when sending a lot.
