Advice needed, computer-savvy friends!

Gilligan's Island ALLIE
 I have a Macbook, and my "startup disk is almost full." I am thinking this is mostly due to just having a lot of photos and media on there. How do you deal with this issue? I am thinking that I should dump old photos onto an external hard drive and/or burn 'em onto CDs, then delete them from the computer. Is that what most people do?

Up until now, I have been using the external HD as a back up, but keeping the files on my computer as well. Maybe that's just a waste!

Would love to clear up some space on my computer, but I am afraid of losing photos or having them be difficult to access. Thoughts?

I have a few ideas I can share. Just a bit busy at work today.

Someone else could probably be more helpful, but yes, I think external drive is a good idea and backing up is an even better idea no matter what!

I would use the HD but also make physical copies of the photos.
