Photos preserve memories of those we love doing all sorts of things. The scrapbook phenomenon of the recent years has encouraged many people to preserve their family history through the self-expression and creative outlets found in scrap booking. While this is a very exciting hobby for some, many people prefer to put their photos in frames around their house and be done with it.
In the days of processed film photographs, after the pictures were taken you took the film to the photo-developing store and waited a week or two until your photos were returned. Most rolls of film were sold in a 24 or 36 exposure. Each time you submitted your rolls of undeveloped film, you waited anxiously to see the developed images. Today, digital cameras have all but replaced the 35 mm cameras. Many of today’s cameras can take over 600 images per camera card. When the camera card is full, the card or camera are downloaded into the computer and sadly enough that is where most of the family photos are now stored. The camera industry has concluded that only 35% of digital photos taken are ever printed.
Digital Photo Frames Provide Ongoing Family Memories
Digital photo frames have taken that sad percentage and created a new media in which to publish the family photos. Digital photo frames display the pictures that have been stored on a camera card, in a slide-show format. Many digital photo frames have an internal memory storage that will allow pictures to be downloaded to the frame itself, while other digital photo frames can upload images from the Internet at specialty websites or even by your personal email. With the slide-show format of the digital photo frames, it is easy to see where more and more people will replace the standard frames in their homes with a digital model. When using a digital photo frame you get to see all the pictures that are on your camera card without having to download, print and store the actual photos.
