What's the point of having all those photos if you're not going to show them off? The problem with a digital photo album versus a physical one is that it's a lot harder to haul around your computer than an envelope of printed pictures. Never fear: There are some great ways to keep your photos digital and show them off whenever you like.

You can probably plug your camera directly into your TV, but you'll lose the album feel that you've created on your computer. A better idea is to use burning software and transfer your album to a DVD. There are numerous programs available that allow you to drag and drop your files and then burn them onto a disk. Once that's complete, you'll be able to pop the DVD in any standard DVD player, sit back and enjoy your photos on any TV [source: Basic Digital Photography].
