#SnapGlad­stone: Your pics

The Observer - - NEWS | #SNAP GLADSTONE -

THANKS to the rise of dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy, this is the most recorded gen­er­a­tion in his­tory.

But as our lives re­volve more around the dig­i­tal sphere, we fall into the trap of hav­ing poorly kept tan­gi­ble, phys­i­cal records.

Stor­ing pho­tos used to be done on CDs. Chances are, you have three or four USB ports in­stead of a CD drive now but will USBs be around in five years’ time?

With less peo­ple print­ing pho­tos and more re­ly­ing on tech­nol­ogy, do we risk los­ing ev­ery­thing when our iPhones or com­put­ers die?

Print­ing pho­tos gives you some­thing to pass from gen­er­a­tion to gen­er­a­tion.

To cel­e­brate Glad­stone­and let oth­ers know what we have to of­fer - The Ob­server launched #SnapGlad­stone a so­cial me­dia ini­tia­tive to pro­mote what we all love about liv­ing here.

Take a look at the pho­tos our read­ers shared with us this week and here’s a list of cool things you can do with printed pho­tos.

1. Prints

Keep them in a shoe box in your cup­board or pop them in a photo box.

2. Photo al­bums

It doesn’t mat­ter how old or young you may be, photo al­bums will al­ways be a part of fam­ily liv­ing.

3. Photo Books

If you’re keen to give a gift from the heart, photo books are the way to go.

4. Col­lages

Rather than just stick­ing to your typ­i­cal printed pic­ture in a frame, why not try some­thing dif­fer­ent with a col­lage.

5. Can­vases

In­stead of artists you’ve never even met, put your own per­sonal stamp on the house in­stead!

6. Scrap­book­ing

Like photo books, but even more crafty!

7. Gifts

This Christ­mas, the list of photo gifts end­less. Cal­en­dars, puz­zles, mugs, key chains, clothes, blan­kets, posters, frames, and more.
