How do you store your photos?

Do you use the traditional photo albums, do you store your photos on a website or on a cd or other way? I prefer storing mine on a cd and still use the traditional photo album.

I store all my photos and other images in a folder on my hard drive. I have created a network of sub folder so that it is easy to find the collection or the subject that I am looking for. It also simplifies the system of adding to my collection. Naturally, the whole folder is archived externally as well. I used to create regular back ups onto DVD, but now that I have a large external USB hard drive, I simply copy the folder to and from this source.

All my photos are digital now, and I only print the ones I want to frame. I store them on CD as well as on www.flickr.com. With Flickr, I can copy them out there and I don't have to make them viewable. So, it's a good offsite backup if something happens to either my laptop or my CDs.

I store my digital photos in a folder on my hard disk, I have to think about making regular backups, I bought my digital camera last August. I would not store them on a single cd or dvd because they don't last forever. And I upload the best photos to www.photo.net, where I get rating by other users and I can see and rate other users' photos, getting some tips to improve my shots.
