I'm working on an 8x8 gift album (will be gifted to three different groups of people, plus printing one for me) of our recent trip to London, England. There are more than 1000 photos total, and I culled those down to my favourite 275, and now I've decided to have only 20 pages in the album and am deciding from those 275 which will go on the 20 pages. Definitely having a finite number of pages makes that easier!
It totally works to have a lot of photos to choose from when you are making several albums of one event for different people. Half of the pictures I take are not scrapbook quality and after printing only the best, I still end up not using some. One advantage with digi over traditional, you don't print pictures you end up not wanting. I'm still just thrilled with digital cameras over tradition film. Wow, I wonder is that will end up being the future of pictures, only digital no prints. Naw, can't happen.
