Before we can go into more of the creative ideas that can be done with your pictures we need to start at the beginning. Where are they? Are they on your camera, your computer or do you think it's all o.k. because you've burned them to a CD? The fact is that it's still best to have the actual photographs in an archival safe format.
Having them on your camera, or even the media card, is the worst place. What if you lose it, drop it or spill on it. Your pictures could be gone forever. If they are on your computer are they backed up? If not you have all the same concerns that you would if they are on your camera. You must back them up to an external drive and/or CD's.
In my opinion the best option is to have the best pictures printed and displayed or stored and then to have them backed up in an electronic format. If you do that make sure the backup is not at your house. If you have a fire or a flood you could lose the actual photographs and the computer. If the CD's or external drive are at a friends house you still have access to them.
In summary, this would be step number one. Make sure you have your pictures in 2 different places. The best idea is having them printed and backed up. If they are on your computer please make sure they are backed up. It's even better if the backups are in a different location.
