    So say now you have 100-200,000 unique and wonderful images representing your "art."

    What do you do with them?

    I certainly do not have 200,000 unique and wonderful images ....

    But with those not so bad bloopers of mine I do:

    - make calendars for friends and family and myself, usually customised to the taste of the respective person.

    - presentations for people interested in it (slide projections, and recently also data projector presentations on 15 x 8 feet)

    - sometimes spam TPF with images ;)

    - on rare occasions my images end up as illustrations in magazines, on webpages of schools and charities.

    Since I post on forums, sometimes my images are 'borrowed' against my will, I once found images by me of very young Japanese schoolgirls in uniform on a pervert's website, and I found images of the former WTC used by other webpages without my consent.

    1) shown here and on other forums

    2) good ones get set to my computer background

    3) all end up in my screensaver (random selection images)

    And that is sadly all at the moment, though I would very much like to be able to

    a) print and frame - some on the wall for certain!

    b) sell a few to pay for some more camera gear

    That is mostly it - though I think stage b is going to have to wait till I am half good with the kit ;)

    I print them or have them printed. They hang in my home and the home of friends and relatives. I show at local coffee shops, book stores, music stores, banks, etc... Some are donated to charity auctions. Occasionally I manage to sell a few. I've made a few books (not for sale, just for myself and family).

    Decide they're that good after all, delete them and start again?

    Back them all up o DVD -
    Only to realize that by the time you finish the first DVDs you burnt are already unreadable.

    Print them all out -
    But then at around the 10,000 mark you realize your house isn't big enough to store them all (even stacked flat).

    Post them all on ThePhotoForum -
    But then the control freaks (U.S. Feds) invent "Internet 2" where no one can DL or view anything all because the images you uploaded jammed all the regular internet servers.

    Back them up to the new 1.5 terabyte HDDs for storage -
    But when you calculate the number of drives and costs involved you discover it would require 14 home mortgages and your entire 4-car garage to store them.

    You're 21 and ambitious so you decide to process all of them by hand and make them perfect in order to become recognized as the photographer with the most and best -
    But when you're 95, your life is over, and you're only 1/4 of the way finished you remember the words of a user named chiller on a long forgotten ancient site called The Photo Forum and kill yourself.
