What about network storage?
Authored by: mkutny on Jul 16, '04 04:53:28PM

While I use my iBook for 90% of my photo editing, the 2000+ images themselves are stored on a Win-server for access by my wife's PC and a web server - I only have about 100 stored "locally" (for screensaver slideshows, mostly). I'll wager a number of users share their photos over a network, or use some form of external storage so the photos can be accessed by others (be they Mac users or not).

Or archived?

I'm in the same camp, more or less. I keep only photos on my computer for "gallery" purposes: because they're especially good (IMHO) or my kids are looking especially cute, etc. Most pictures are thrown on to CDs, labeled, and archived.

So I've got under a hundred "keepers" and a couple hundred more that are the most recent. In short order, the recent ones will be archived as they're replaced with more recent pictures. My archive is now a big ole stack of CDs and at least a hundred pounds of negatives. The CDs are much easier to use than the negatives, that's for sure!

What in the world would I (as a casual passionate amateur photographer) need a gazillion photos on my HD for, anyway? Music I could understand, but photos: different altogether.
