    I have been wanting to buy something to display my pictures physically and not digitally for a while now. I'm not sure what is the best way to go though. I want something nice and functional, I don't really care what it is, It can be a photo album or anything in between.

    Thanks
    J.

    depends how big you want to go!
    Myself I would like a big A4 folder for most of my work - couple with some larger examples of the best ones (once I have some worthy of that size that is)

    That's a good point. I was just going to ether set it on a desk for people to look at.

    I saw something on someone's flickr once and it had paper sized pockets - like a regular piece of paper - and he put pictures in there and hung it on the wall. I remember that he found it somewhere but I can't remember where.

    what about one of those digital photoframes - where you can upload a series of photos for it to scroll through?
    would be good for a desk showing - and then you can have printed paper versions in a book for carrying around places

    I don't know, I'd rather have something more functional instead of a 7" frame. I like the idea though. I'll keep looking for that silly rack.

    I used to have a wall of stiff wire strung across and my photos on display via cloths pins. This was a while ago in a dorm and my roomies liked the fact that my photos were ever changing.

    Now that I live in a home, my wife wasn't too keen on the idea. Due to limited wall space, most of mine are kept in albums/portfolios I sort out by theme. I do enjoy making them.

    That's probably what I'll end up doing. What i'm trying to think of looks a lot like http://www.flickr.com/photos/palumbo/2748178777/in/pool-unclutterer that.

    Another idea..

    Sheet metal from home depot and some magnets... I thought about it but not really safe with young kids running around. You can be creative with how they are displayed.... pattern wise.

    That's a good idea. I might just do that. Thanks for the advise!
