<freeform>Salt Lake Tribune readers are fans of photos. Any photos. Old photos, weather photos, sports photos, outdoors photos, our photos or your photos, the galleries on sltrib.com are some of the most popular content we produce each year. While 2012 was no different in terms of that popularity, we did change the way our photos are viewed and shared, making it easier for you to see more detail, pin to Pinterest or share an image with your friends and family.

The Tribune’s nine most popular photo galleries of 2012 (click to view):

1. Emilie Parker’s public memorial service

2. The BYU steeplechaser’s spectacular crash

3. The Herriman wildfire

4. Look Back historic photo gallery of saloons and breweries

5. Mormons march in Gay Pride Parade

6. FBI most wanted fugitive may be hiding among Mormons

7. Utah holds on to beat BYU in unbelievable finish

We also expanded our video offerings, and while we didn’t have anything go Gangnam Style, people really wanted to see that airplane whipping across the tarmac at the St George airport, a car crashing into a TRAX train and the story behind a Utah teen juggling athletics with being a teen mom.
