    Just got back from our 7 day trip and I took 531 pics! :earseek:

    Some of them are dupes or not good, but that is the beauty of digital - I can take 10 pics and get 1 great shot instead of taking just 3 with film and hoping one turns out!

    Now I need to get organized to make my scrapbook! I am really looking forward to it. I saved all our memorabilia in the folder they give you at check in. I found some great ideas at 2 peas in a bucket and I also want to search this forum for tips too.

    So, how many pictures do you guys normally take on your trips?

    DH and I were in Disneyland for 3 days and I took 418 pictures. I tend to go way overboard and take as many pictures as I can. My children are getting to the age where they are like ' Run! Mom's got the camera out!'

    On our last trip to WDW two weeks ago, I didn't take nearly as many pictures as I have before. We go to WDW every year and we don't have children so after two or three years, most of our pictures look the same!

    I take that back, our pictures have changed some... I've gotten fatter! :teeth:

    Anyway, on our last trip (6 days) I took about 150 pictures.

    During our 8 day trip in 2004, we took almost 1400 pictures!! And that was after we deleted the bad ones. I am in the process of scrapping them now. I will probably be 62 by the time I am done!! ...................P

    YUP!!! Each trip over 1,000 pics!!! I managed to keep it below that on mine and DH's trip in August!!! I was so proud of myself!!

    I JUST booked my flight for February 10, 2006. I am forced to go to WDW for a Cheer Competition. :cheer2: (Can you tell how sad I am about that?!? :cloud9: ) God only knows how many pictures I'll end up with this time!!!

    On our trip in Dec., we took 4 disposable cameras, 5 rolls of film and about 300 digital pictures. I used most of the developed pictures in a big Disney scrapbook, but didn't use very many of the digital pictures. I need the pictures in my hand to sort through, or I can't get ideas for pages. I can't sit at the computer and decide which pictures I will print for a layout. I must be a tactile person. :rotfl:

    About 300ish for a 3 day trip to Disneyland. About 400 or so for a weeklong WDW trip -- but during a longer trip, I will usually have time at night to delete ones I don't want to keep so I definitely snap more than that, just keep it to about 400. I actually wind up printing only when I am ready to scrap so I probably don't use as many as I take.

    You are all INSANE!!!!! (I mean that in a loving way :) ) I think I would end up in a mental facility if I took that many pictures and then had to scrap them. My family all read calls me the Kodak Queen (even now that I'm digital) so I think they would toss the camera in lake if I took that many.

    He said I took too many pictures--- on a 4 day trip, I took about 2700 pictures. Which is easy to do--- espcially when you have a hard drive to down load everynight!!! many are just ok, some not so good and several GR8!!! I posted a few (without people on the shutterfly acount)

    So in comparison--- DH was right--- I take too many pics--- next time, I'll just enjoy the sights--- yeah right, me without a camera????


    Here is the link to shutterfly--- many other DISers also posted here. Enjoy

    Wowie wow that is a lot!!!! But the good thing is, you guys have a lot to pick from when you put together an album. Plus you will get shots that those of us who don't take so many got. I feel like I should have taken more pics and now you all are confirming that! Next time, the sky's the limit!!! :earboy2:

    So I went to that Shutterfly account Tubachick, and there are TONS of great pictures! Which album is yours?

    Well, I can see I am in good company. We are going in January and I am scared to even think about how many pictures I am going to take. A couple of weeks ago was my youngest child's birthday and her party was 2 hours and I took over 100 pictures. This summer for my girls' dance recital, I took about 250 at the recital!!!!! Yes, I am insane.

    Our first 7 day DCL cruise we took 1003 pictures. I had 750 printed and am in the process of making my first scrapbook now. I have 4 pages done( it took 1 week).We went in June, but I just finished buying most of the supplies since I have never done this before. As I go along, I find myself wanting more stuff and keep making trips to the store.

    Let's see on our 10 day trip through Colorado...984, including 319 pictures on the Durango & Silverton Railroad. Which when you think about it works out to almost 9 rolls of 36 exp film, just for the train. Can you imagine! I love digital, but sometimes I wonder if I do take too many photos.

    When I went to WDW in June, 10 days, I almost filled 2 512 MB cards, each card stores about 1000 photos.

    July at DL turned out to be a mostly non-photo trip, 10 days and only about 800 pictures. I was actually upset about that, because I didn't take very many pictures of the 50th decorations, so I told DH to upgrade his pass to an AP, cause we needed to come back within the year.

    We just got back Sept 23 and I took about 200 pix with the digital. Not near enough when I think of the many shots I should have gotten but plenty when I am trying to get the cropped/fixed/printed.

    We just got back on Tuesday night and I *only* did 256 on the digital and 40 on photopass. Can I say I LOVE photopass ~ we can get the whole family in and DD loves the Stitch, Simba and Tink pics?

    Now my plan is to get them all scrapped over the long weekend! I can do it! I can do it!

    Let me put it this way . . . I switched to digital because the last year I used a film camera, my snapfish annual total was more than $800!

    Now, I probably take 100 - 200 a day, buy about 100-200 per trip and scrap about 30 % as whole pictures and use square or round punchies from the rest for embellishments.

    I printed 215 pictures the other day at Costco. Not too bad...thank God for digital; otherwise it easily would have been 300. I have 4 pics coming from Disney's Photo Pass. I'm already starting to crop....I love doing Disney Albums and I have all my awesome swap stuff from last year! WooHoo! :cool1:
