Jumping in again, this is pure economics:

  • how much does an SSD cost ./ MB;
  • how much does a spindrive cost / MB;
  • how much of the expensive disk do you want to hand over to pictures;
  • what will you do when the expensive drive is filled with 'library' stuff

Like Jared, I use a NAS for that stuff, as well as for backup.

It's a 'business case' decision.
