It's time to liberate those photos from the shackles of your digital cameras and phones. Maybe Heather Palmer McFarland of Clarksville, Arkansas, can help. Her mother-in-law always wants photos of family events, so Heather and her husband bought a starter camera for her (prices range from $50 to $100) and included a certificate for lessons on shooting, uploading, and printing at the photo kiosk.
Gena Leal of Acworth, Georgia, likes to put vacation photos on a DVD with background music. Web-based services can turn those same shots into a keepsake coffee-table book, complete with captions.
Our suggestion for advanced users: Buy Aunt Felicia a digital photo frame (around $200), connect it to the Internet, and then send her new photos from your house.
