I have several gigabytes of digital photos. Because they are essentially "free," I take a lot more digital photos than I would if I had a regular camera. I almost never get these digital photos actually developed. Part of me feels that this is wrong and we still need to have hard copies of photos.
But then part of me says that having a hard copy is no longer important, as long as the digital copies are backed up and dispersed. A set of hard copies can be destroyed in a fire, just like there are several ways to destroy the digital versions. Plus, with applications like Quark or Pagemaker, making "scrapbooks" can become an ALL digital process.
I guess then there wouldn't be scraps, though.
