What to do with those digital pics
As digital photography increasingly replaces print photography, the question which begs to be asked is: So, what exactly are we supposed to do with the thousands of photos we are taking?
Digital picture frames seem to be becoming a popular way for viewing photos that are not tethered to desktops or laptops. Using an old laptop, a wireless card and some mounting supplies, Mike Haney has written up some extensive instructions on how to make your very own DIY Digital Photo Frame. It's not as expensive as it seems, because he suggests that you use an old/almost obsolete laptop, which you can often find for free or at very low cost. The laptop doesn't need to be powerful because the images are stored in flickr and displayed via a web browser in flickr's slideshow mode. The added benefit is that anyone can upload photos from any location if they can log into flickr. Ah . . . the power of the wireless network.
