The problem with digital

I keep telling myself I need to go through the thousands of digital pics I have and organize them and print some off. I just never get around to it, cuz it just seems too overwhelming. 4 years of digital pics is a lot to go through, especially when they are spread out over 2 computers, 3-4 CDs, and various hard drives. Just finding them all will be a pain. That's got to be at least 10,000 pics I'm thinking. And then deciding what to print is going to be hard, because pics cost money. At least I can always find Kodak Gallery coupons and stuff to get cheap prints online, but if have even 1,000 pics I want printed out that's still going to be around $100. Yikes! Plus photo albums to put them in (no, I don't scrapbook lol) and the work of putting them in writing down what each one is. So, I get thinking about all that work and just give up before starting lol.

Yeah, it can be a hassle trying to catch up. It's taken me weeks to go through our picture files, deleting the crappy ones and cropping/resizing the good ones. I took a folder a day to work on and I'm mostly done. Still need to print them but at least they are somewhat organized! lol
