Wow, seriously? You base your argument on an article from 2003? Hmm, sad.

Prints...no such problems.

There is no problem for digital either. So it's a tie.

Educate yourself or lose your work!

Thanks, any other links to studies from the Stone Ages?

And again, we are not talking about Art Work in this thread; just family snaps. Is it really worth printing hundreds and hundreds of pictures strictly for private use? I have six fat albums and four shoe boxes filled with family prints. Nobody opened them for years. How much more I would have if I didn't stop printing in 2006?

Digital is merely preview of prints...and not accurate at that.

Only temporary. Larger resolution displays are on the horizon and it is just a matter of a few years until we can view the entire 12-16 megapixel images without downsampling.

I thought we were talking about today? or possibly 10 years time?

I thought so too until I saw your link...
