Dear PC Doctor:
I have had my computer a long time; maybe seven years. I’ve been good about backing up important work-related stuff, but not photos. I haven’t printed them either. I’m nervous that, one day, my computer will fail and I’ll have lost everything from this near decade. For now, until I get a new computer, is there a place I can upload all my pictures to for safekeeping? A free place?
There are many free photo storage sites on the internet! Most give you a certain amount of space for free and offer larger storage for a fee. Here are the names of a few: Dropbox, Flickr, Apple iCloud, Google Photos, Amazon Cloud Drive, Shutterfly, and Photobucket. You could even upload them all to your Facebook or Google+ account as a back up.
Some of these services have editing and organizing features, and some do not. Some make you look at ads while using their sites. I recommend visiting these sites and looking at the services they provide (and their privacy policies) and see what suits you best.
And, happy computing!
