I am hoping to make them both viewable and also downloadable/printable (in case we ever revert to the old days and want physical copies of stuff) to cover my bases, and to be usable across a variety of platforms. We're a mixed family: some us apple/mac phones and computers; some use other types of phones and a PC computer. One or two of us switch things up and haven't quite decided where we will (permanently)land.
I saw your lovely photos from your honeymoon. Do you feel it's quite secure. I am a bit...stupidly obsessed with the idea of having privacy and no one being able to hack our photos. There is no reason I can think of for anyone to actually do this. None of us is famous or even well known, no celebrity, etc. I have had friends who were surprised to find someone they knew from the internet showing unexpectedly and uninvited on their doorsteps so there is that....
Are you going to buy a scanner, or pay some service that has a scanner?
I actually already have a scanner. I've just uploaded a few photos to Google and will be inviting family to view the files. Actually, those were photos I had already had on my computer, from digital photography. Figured starting with a handful was easier than going through a whole lot of trouble for something people didn't like.
I do really appreciate everybody's help with this, letting me know what you used and is secure and is easy to use.
