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
