Social media has made it infinitely easier to share our photos—no one is going to argue that. Rather than emailing select photos to your mom from your trip to Italy, she can see all 234 photos now that she's on Facebook. If she's an extra savvy cool mom, she may even be on Instagram, so she can see your updates in real time and obsessively monitor your account to ensure you haven't been kidnapped by terrorists (in Italy, mom? Really?).
BUT, social media does take the presentation element out of your photos. Why? Because they're old news before you even land in your home city. Back in the day, people would go to Hawaii, take a ton of pictures, and then invite their friends over for drinks to look at their vacation slides. This is always brought up in TV shows like it's the most boring thing ever, but it kind of seems nice. You see the photos differently because you're getting a bunch of little travel stories with them, and you're also drinking, so you're more interested than you would be when you usually look at your friends' Facebook photos (which is, when you're bored at your desk at work).
Thankfully, Projecteo ($35) brings back the flair for presentation to your photos. A thumbsized projector, Projecteo will project your Instagram images (9 images per slide—custom slides will run you about $9) onto the wall for all to see, which is totally more impactful than showing them on your phone.
