    Digital photographers seem to take a lot of pictures.

    How many (what percentage) of your shots end up printed?

    How many (what percentage) of your shots end up enlarged, mounted, and on display?

    I print mine and give them away. I put them up on my office walls, and people commenton them, they get them. I have one image in my home office that I made back in 2002 with my first digital camera. All the rest get gifted out.

    If I could afford to print all the great pics I have (big) I would need to win the lottery

    I'm starting to do more printing at Costco. Hard to beat a 12x18" for only $2.99 usd.

    Hi

    I rarely get anything printed, but display the photos I like on my 24" monitor which is in the living room.

    As an aside, all the mega pixel posts I've seen only seem to refer to printing, not to displaying on a large monitor, cropped or otherwise, so I'll be interested in seeing whether others here print or not.

    Cheers
    Nick

    All,

    I only print the ones that "speak" to me...on average, it is maybe one or two images out of a set of 30-40 in a session. Below are the last three I have enlarged to various sizes...

    Enjoy them...

    12"x18" Archival studio mount w/ white double mat
    5496026-md.

    20"x30" Archival studio mount w/ white double mat
    5300803-md.

    20"x24" Archival studio mount w/ white double mat
    5454615-md.

    Cheers,

    -Ian

    Too funny, I do the same.... You like it, hey great its yours. I think about 8 of the guys that work for me have large photos of mine hanging in their houses/ office.

    As far as my house, I have two little girls and a wife that likes to switch out pictures all the time. So large prints come and go like the wind.
