Tuesday's Tip: storing photos

When I was reading over at another blog, it reminded me of how important storage is.  Not only have we given some photo cd's, dvd's of inside of the house etc to the parents & inlaws but I was investigating photo storage. I have ATLEAST 6 if not 7 generations of photos. (YEAH) I am adding to them more & more.  I am a VERY amateur photographer.  I love it but wouldn't call myself a pro.....AT ALL.  We had one of our Digital SLR camera's stolen (with photos on it!) and we have had computers crash (boo) where things were NOT recovered :( (Like photos).  I lost quite a few years of photos because we were all digital and have been for a while.  We have seen families that we know have their houses destroyed by fire, by water and by tornadoes (we are in the deep south!).  There are a few things I would take if I needed to flee right away, but one is my photos!  Those are one of my most cherished possessions.  I am going to investigate Dropbox.  My brother who's a computer junkie and is self employed working on computers was telling me of a online source where I  could load stuff up for $70.year.  I investigated that........I did and then it donned on me that I have PICASA and other sources.  Since I have a gmail account, Picasa is linked to Google for their photos and there's quite a bit of room there too.  Also I just make them "private" and only for "me".  I have multiple gmail accounts already.......so I am looking forward to "maxing them out".......just something to think about.

I just spent a long weekend at my mother-in-laws laboriously removing photos that were glued down in the corners. Scanning and transcribing what was written on the backs, they putting them back in the album/scrapbook using archival corner photo mounts! Whew!
