690 Million Photos Will Be Deleted

Another internet photo site is shutting down. This time it’s Webshots, and 690 million photos will be deleted. The internet is not photo preservation. Say it three times and then go back up your photos to an external hard drive. For more details see Your Old Pictures on the Internet Are Going To Be Deleted.

    reblogged on http://www.appo.org as well. the photo organizers specialize in helping people back up their photos and will do it for them if they don’t have time to do i themselves. We recommend 3 back up plans, printing photos, external hard drive and cloud storage.
