While an increasing number of people now use web-based photo storage and sharing sites, there can still be benefits with printing the pictures.
Mashable.com notes that as the spring gift season is upon us, with events such as graduation and Father's Day set to happen over the coming months, now could be an ideal time to put together a special photo album.
It notes that printed items offer "something special" that can be kept and treasured in a way that online photographs cannot.
