PHOTOGRAPHS taken on holiday are being deleted before they see the light of day according to a recent survey.

Only 10% of the snaps are deemed good enough to share on social networking sites while 97% of holiday makers admit they will never print their pictures out, put them in an album or frame them.

The average tourist takes 300 photos during a week’s holiday using a camera or mobile phone according to the survey of 2,100 British adults conducted by online travel agency,

Chris Clarkson, spokesman, said: “Holiday photos are a great way to capture the memories of your trip abroad.

“It’s not long after you return home that you tend to forget where you’ve been altogether when the stresses of everyday life kick back in.”

He added: “Too often now, photos end up stuck on computers or social media profiles and that’s the only place they exist, but people really should make more of an effort to print images and enjoy them.”

No need to print images, much better to leave them on a memory stick or even C.D. and look at them on your telly when you feel like recalling your hols. Most modern T.V.s have the facility to do this. How many of us dig out old printed photos from before the digital age?
