Ask Slashdot: Best Option For Printing Digital Photos?

MossStan What I do... (350 comments)

Hello- I have used as one form of backup for my sons images. I have been adding images for free for over five years with few to no problems. Video's too although webshots degrades the quality of those. They give you more space as you upload more files. I suppose they print in mass as well from that site but I am using an HP 9600 series with the extra color gradient. I also print them on Kodak 'archival grade' paper which is supposed to last over a hundren years. All I can attest to though is they have not degraded in five years. Hope this helps ahd have fun taking those pictures. I view mine often and am glad I took the time to upload them all. good day, moss-
