Storing my slides and prints

I've been thinking about a better storage place for my slides and prints. Right now, they are in the attic. A few are in my desk and others in the proverbial "shoebox." Anyone heard of place to put them "in the cloud"? -Hank

There are several digital storage alternatives such as carbonite, photoshelter etc. what I do is save on ultiple external hard-drives that I then store in different locations. One in my bank safety deposit box, one with a friend, one in my office etc. External hd's are cheap and - if you have goos USB or FireWire connections - quite fast. But god quality hd's though! I also use a Drobo backup system that automatically save a copy of new files I create. The advantage with multiple external hd's is that you're looking at a one-time cost buying the disks. Any "cloud" storage will likely come with a monthly fee...

As the Baby Boomers get older, many are thinking in terms of storing their photos on the “cloud”. I came across a good article on the subject at http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/244949/the_cloud_day_13_storing_and_managing_pictures_in_the_cloud.html.
Of course, if your 1960’s photos are on slides and B&W prints you’ll want to look into scanning places. Here are some of the more popular ones. FotoBridge, DigitalPickle, GoPhoto, DigMyPics, PhotoBin, ScanCafe, ScanDigital, and LegacyPhoto. –Rohn
