When I photograph something, I take anywhere from two to 10 shots of it. Especially if it’s something that moves, like an insect. Then I look at each one, often picking one for a horizontal, one for a vertical, and sometimes another one or two depending on the subject. Once these are developed and ready to upload, I go through the folder and delete everything I didn’t use. It keeps my folders tidy, and it saves me from having my HDs get too bloated. If I were a lot younger, I might save an occasional few for later uploading down the road for that subject to fit in the “new image” category. I have no interest in going back and developing old photos. I have enough trouble these days finding the time to develop the new. My back issues limit how long I can sit at my computer now. I used to have upload sizes of 20-30 images, these days they are more like 8-12. I could do more if I bulk developed, but that's not my style. So what do you do? Save everything that’s in focus with no glaring faults? Or only save what you've chosen to upload at this time? For myself, when I first got into stock, those early few years, I tended to save everything. No longer. Betty
