Back in the day, we printed photographs and slides. Often we got duplicates to share with family and friends. That was the only way to see what the camera saw the day a photograph was snapped. Not only did we collect our own photographs, but we received them from everyone we knew. And these photographs got stored in boxes and drawers and closets for years. The blurry ones right along with the precious ones, side-by-side.
If you traveled, you made carousels of slides for after-dinner slideshows that bored your friends which now sit in dusty boxes because—whatever did happen to that slide projector we had?
If you’ve been on the planet long enough, you too have piles of photos stored in your home. And you have digital photos on your computer, your phone, camera cards, and old single-use cameras that never made it to the store to get developed.
Plus you may have scrapbooks or wedding photos that won’t be preserved in case of disaster. What to do?
