/ Best on-line photo storage site
My photos are currently stored on my laptop with a back-up on an external hard drive. I have about 10-20GB of files and I'm happy to pay for a service.
purely storage or sharing with others as well?
and if the latter community style (eg adding comments, groups and all that jazz) or just family and friends?
Thanks, it's just for storage, I don't want to share at all
Dropbox is good.
Create your own cloud?
You could set up NAS box to be accessed from anywhere in the world. That way you have an initial set-up investment with a storage size of your choice but without worrying about monthly rip-off fees for storing and accessing your own images.
not much use for offsite backup though.
Aside from dropbox.
Google and Microsoft have some not bad variations (and depending on what you use can be well integrated).
Amazon Glacier looks like it could be useful as well.
> not much use for offsite backup though.
Possibly the cheapest option would be to swap some space on a friends NAS for some space on your own. You back up to theirs and vice-versa.
Take a look at CrashPlan. I've put up 350 GB on their unlimited option for ~ £35 a year.
I've got about 90Gb of pictures both RAW and Jpeg. I'm a student at the moment so any suggestions on a cheap online / off site backup would be greatly appreciated.
Pretty extensive list here: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/maintenance/tp/online_backup_services.htm
I'm using CrashPlan+. Seems to work OK on the Mac, allows you to backup external discs, unlimited storage.
I've also heard good things about Mozy and Carbonite.
Dropbox / Skydrive / Google Drive get very expensive for larger storage requirements.
