I did not get paid to post this, I promise. I though I knew how I wanted to archive my 365 images, until I came across this amazing idea.
Check it out!!!!!

I have been thinking about how to save or showcase my photos so I found this site

http://www.blurb.com/

You can easily make a coffee table book. it can get pricey (depending on the size book you want) but I have a year to save up and I thing it will be way worth it...

I have used Blurb before, and I like it. My friends use them a lot for wedding albums. The first book I ordered from them, the images were kind of dark, however my friend said they have a newer paper, and he loves it :) your right, definitely worth it, especially if you think about the cost of prints, albums,etc.

I started on January 1st and decided to recreate my daily picture and posts in a .doc. (My plan is to print on matte photo paper and dispaly in acid-free page protectors.) I set up six text boxes per page (to define space) with the date. Then I just add my title, text, and pic. (I hide the lines on some text boxes and lay the photos on top, so the page doesn't look too boxy.) I looked at the blurb.com option ... Looks good! May have to consider going that route! (We'll see how the 365 days go!)

I am uploading my photos to the 365 Project and also creating an iWeb (Mac)photo-blog. Those files get saved to my hard drive. Sometimes my posts there are longer. I also include links to things I reference. I figure that way if the 365 Project site dumps my photos at some point, I will still have all my 2010 memories both in photo and text form. http://www.apple.com/ilife/iweb/

I plan to order a block of A5 photo paper, print out each image and stock them in a folder or possibly one of those specially-made folios. Things stored digitally tend to disappear.

I am digital scrapbooking, every week I make a layout with 7 pictures and post it in my blog. I plan to make a photobook with the 52 layouts

I will also be using the Becky Higgins Project Life. Another way I am sharing my pics is to post them each day on my Facebook page and make it my profile pic!

As a scrapbooker, I will also incorpoarte photos into my regualr projects.

My photos aren't worth keeping... But most are still on the memory cards from the camera, so I shall probably, at some point, make a "365 Photos" folder on my external hard-drive, and keep them there...

I think I'd rather keep them digitally, i.e., on a CD-ROM or something. I guess that's where digital scrapbooking can help?

Mine are being saved in iPhoto. The idea is I get some Apple vouchers for Christmas 2010 and I then get one of the books Apple do. I even had a play with designing the first few pages and it's great, you can choose how many photos per page and whether you can have captions etc.

I print 4x6 prints every 100 shots that go into a photo album. Seeing them in print is inspiring and easy to sit on the sofa and remember each shot. The next thing will be a printed coffee table book for each year, just keep changing my mind on the layout.
