So anyway - How do you view your images ?
I would be interested to know how you usually store and view your files / images ?
On your TV screen , prints, tablet or what ?
I have been shooting with relatively modest machinery ( Kodak P880 and Samsung EX1 recently ) and have always viewed them on a 22" computer monitor.
These are smallish sensor camera's yet the EX1 in particular, is capable of very high quality images. Viewing on full screen, contrast, colour saturation and sharpness
are excellent right into the corners of the screen.
Using Picasa 3's Pan and Zoom slide show can produce amazingly realistic, convincing and occasionally startling results even with 25 year old scanned images from my old Contax.
Just wondered what other members use.

I just view them on my craptop. One day I plan on printing some better ones.....if I ever get them.

I'm ashamed to say that for the most part I view them on my 15 inch MacBook Pro - which is very good...but I do think printing them is ideal...or perhaps that's slowly but surely becoming an anachronism? I have printed some via MPIX and now - thanks to you, Luke - via Blurb and have been very pleased with the results. As I'm writing this I have realized that I've yet to print any from my X100 which has by far the best image quality of any digital camera that I've owned.
(Note to self - get on the Blurb book wagon...and upgrade to the latest Lightroom that has a Blurb interface.)

I view them on my laptop's screen. Used to be a 10" netbook, now a 17" Toshiba C670, which totally transformed the image viewing experience, really bringing photos to life (wonderful screen for the price!). Want to print but have no decent printer and no place to hang prints... Can't wait to get a grown up's job

Mostly on the laptop, then now and then I pick 50 and get them printed to see if I like them.
Nothing like holding a real live print!

On the computer screen for most, but I do print about 8-12 of my recent favorites every few months. Those go on the wall for a while.

iPad for fun and quick processing/posting. 27" iMac for real processing with LR/PS/Nik.

Up until now I have used my old iMac (24" screen I think) or iPad when shooting away from home. I have recently gone back to film and bought a $10 printer so will view on the iMac and print if I feel the urge.

Most of the time on my MacBook Pro (with matte screen) and sometimes on the iPad retina. I've been printing again and that is the most pleasurable. I've been trying out different papers and processing, seeing what I like best.

I've been using my Macbook pro lately but the screen is less than stellar for image viewing. Lets just say its OK. I'm about to pull the trigger on a Dell U2410 because I finally have a buyer for my old iMac, and after that, I'll be editing by pairing the MBP with that. I also view on my iPad and TV screen at times, but I dont spend a lot of time just looking at my shots, only when determined to edit. I look at other people's stuff mostly on the iPad... its very flattering to almost all of them. LOVE it for that.
