Storage for photos

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

hi to the photographers out there

i would like recomendation and opinion on how you store your photos and archives.

do you suscribe to like flickr pro account to store online, etc or have your own drives/NAS at home to store? or do you do both?

Concerns over security of cloud storage, like cloud storage being hacked? Concerns over robbery, like drives being stolen by burglar(very unlikely)?

I use NASes mainly, but I have cloud backups as well that are encrypted before they make it to the cloud provider. This feature is built into CrashPlan ($10/mo) and is nice. The only thing is if you forget the encryption key you set, the data is useless, so do so with caution.

I have multiple NAS. They are cheap, and secure.

Don't do cloud. You never know what's going to happen with the provider, or if they take the pics and sell off or use them for their own ads. It's happened before too.

If the online storage offers such an option, yes

I think his main point was services like Flickr where their ever changing policies could lead to you agreeing to let them do things with your intellectual property that you wouldn’t agree to if presented in plain English.
