IF you do or don't state your reason. I think i've a couple of people here that do ( Sanctified for example)

I remember as a kid, my uncle used to carry a heap load of printed photographs in family reunions, I feel photo sharing has gotten a bit frivolous in that sense with online sharing.

I usually don't... But i'm trying to start a "scrapbook" with "significant" photos.

Periodically yes, we print out the best pictures taken since the last time for display around the house and for giving to family.

I print photos that I think will look particularly vibrant on glossy paper. But most of them will never see the light of day. They will stay digital forever. :p

I don't see the point in wasting paper/ink on something I can simply view on any screen.

Dumb arse printers were I live have only "regular" glossy, if I want the "extra" glossy I have to bring it myself (which turns out to be expensive).

I don't see the point in wasting paper/ink on something I can simply view on any screen.

To each is own :p

Same here.

I do save most pics to flash drive, but not about to waste ink on frivolous pics!!

Really can't even remember the last time I printed ANYTHING!!

Same here, we recently bought some nice frames, so we printed some pictures to fill those up and hang around the house.
The rest stays digital.

I print them only when I frame them. Which is about one or two a year.

My wife still prints. She loves to keep scrapbooks when we do things, so she prints off the best pictures and then puts them in her scrapbook. She does some nice work.
