@pansyshell: We just got inexpensive large leather albums from Target with plastic sleeves.  I think each one holds 400 pictures, and we have 3 of them.  Make sure you get an album that is advertised as “acid free.”  Also, after you receive your final album you probably won’t even look at the 4×6 proofs much anymore.

Paper pages with photo corners!!!!! That is a no brainer =) Depending on storage temperature, humidity, etc the pictures actually can stick to the plastic over time. I tell all my clients to use the paper corners and only place the images on one side of the page so that they do not stick to each other. If photo corners are spaced perfectly images will not fall out. I believe they also sell archival quality adhesive to put on the back of pictures to guarantee it. Check at your local craft store.

All of my childhood pictures are in albums with plastic sleeves, and there are no issues with photo’s sticking.  As long as the album is decent (acid free), and the pictures were not printed on your home printer you should be fine.  I, myself think paper corners look cheesy in an album, more of a DIY look.

It all depends on what sort of paper corners you get as well as what sort of album you put them in. Before 5 years ago, where the industry made the switch to digital, most traditional photography albums were made by hand with images printed on archival quality photography paper. Personally, I find pictures that pictures that are stores in a plastic sleeve take away from the image and distract.

@ndadlani: I am talking about albums my mother probably bought a kmart and images from our point and shoot camera printed at a one hour photo lab.  No issues.

I am not saying the pictures will always stick. It depends on how they were stored. Leaving it in a place with high humidity or not storing them at a cool enough temprature would affect it. I said they can stick, not that they always will.
