Probably true

Women Don’t Have the Life Expectancy to View All the Pictures They’re Taking

I have kids. We take a lot of pics. There is no way I’ll see them all again. I doubt it’s just women.

    I used to think the same. Then I got a couple of those digital picture frames and have hundreds of photos on there. They just keep cycling through.

    Got my 75 year old mother-in-law a digital picture frame last Christmas. A new picture (out of about 50) of her kids, their spouses, grandkids, pets, vacation pictures rotates up every 15 seconds.

    Every month I change half the pictures to a new set.

    She keeps asking me for prints to put in her photo album so she can look at them longer.

    And she thinks she’s going senile because she keeps seeing pictures she does not remember.

    I’m not gonna tell her.

    LOLWUT?

    The “family photo album full of pics of mom and the kids but none of dad because he’s using the camera” trope is so old it can collect social security.

    Never heard any meme about us chicks taking too many pics. Every photography or darkroom (ask your parents, kids) class I ever took was almost as much of a sausage fest as the D&D group.

    I had a lady in my office that I reprimanded (as head IT dude) because she filled a laptop with full res and raw images of her son. She had just bought a DLSR andit had a burst mode. So thousands of pictures, that all looked the same.

    I delete blurry or similar pics of my daughter. Space is at a premium.

    If you plug a USB key into that digital picture frame, don’t ever plug it back into any computer that you care about.

    Robert –
    If you have a USB key, don’t plug it into any computer you care about… unless it’s running linux and you have automount/autorun turned off.

    Seriously, if you plug a usb key into another computer, especially one out of your control, do NOT plug it into a computer you love. Scanning stations are somewhat effective but still not perfect.

    There is no effective condom for thumb drives and you honestly don’t know what STDs are waiting in that other computer. It’s why most of my thumb-drives are single use.

    Any photograph worth anything will tell you that it takes about 100 photos of the same subject to get the lighting, angle, and timing needed to make a classic shots. For this new digital age, I HIGHLY recommend using http://www.mypublisher.com. For what it would cost to get prints back in the day, you can customize entire photo albums that will last a lifetime. Photography is one of my side hobbies. Not like Tactical Response though.

    If the 70 inch TV sits for 60 seconds gPhotoShow screensaver takes over scanning through 70,000+ at random. Great thing about gPhotoShow is it plays all the old home videos too. Kids even prefer watching screensaver, (pics of themselves), over movie watching sometimes.
