equiniphile, if you have that many pictures, I would suggest an external hard drive. I got one for college shenanigans, then my laptop started crashing. I have like....12GBs of pictures on my computer. I got my external hard drive at Walmart for about $60 (which is relatively cheap for one) and I've barely put a dent in it, even though it contains the entire contents of my computer.
However, I will post the pictures that have mostly been taken by my Nikon D40. NIKON FOR THE WIN. (Most of my friends have Canons, so we argue over it). Also...except for Picnik, I cannot edit pictures to save my life. Any editing on them was nothing more than changing exposure inside my camera. The first one isn't from my Nikon, it was from an old point and shoot digital camera that did funny things with colours without my permission.
