I'm curious about what you do with photos once you have thoroughly scrapped the event, place, activity...do you delete these photos...
For instance: making cookie...you have taken 2 dozen photos and scraped and journaled the event...do you keep the original photos or delete them??

I always keep them, the only time I delete photos ever,is if there is something wrong with them,bad lighting, blurry, bad facial expression and such.
I always keep them.......

Same as above. I keep them unless there are bad pictures. Now if I have multiple of the same shot, then I may delete down to 1-2 of that same shot.

Here is a thread all about deleting photos!!
always keep - even ones that look bad - I never know when I might want that shot for something.
To be honest I don't think I've deleted any photo - not even ones that are way over or under exposed - the technology out there means that often I can recover enough detail to do something with the image.

Keep them. Down the track you may want to use the photo in a different context.
- You may want to give a copy of a photo to somebody else.
- create a slideshow from photos only
- print and frame an ordinary photo
- use it for a different purpose e.g your cookie photos with a recipe
You can be sure if you delete you'll think of something else you want to use them on other than a scrapbook.

I keep everything unless it is totally beyond recognition! I wish that I could delete more but that just isn't me!

I never delete any photo unless it is completely unsalvagable. You never know when you might need it, and I like to have them in one place as well as my layouts. I love my layouts for people to look at, but I also love my photos as a historical record of everything.
Even blurry or other photos that aren't great I keep. There is always still plenty to see in them, and there is a lot you can do with them in a layout etc. or in editing software.

Oh and I have also been known to intentionally blur photos to create textures etc. ;)
