We’ve all got them; stacks of or books full of pictures that are packed away in some remote corner of a closet or garage. While most individuals believe that pictures left in closets and garages will be safe for years to come, they actually face a number of different dangers.
Of course the most immediate threat to pictures in storage is the extreme temperatures, both hot and cold, that they are exposed to. In some garages and closets pictures in storage will also be exposed to a high level of humidity which is also detrimental to their longevity. There is also of course things like dust, bugs, and the bending and crushing of pictures to contend with.
Even individuals who aren’t overly concerned with any of the aforementioned dangers must concede that finding stored pictures for a few minutes of viewing is, at the very least inconvenient. People who pull their pictures out of storage even frequently will tell you that they’re disappointed in the constantly degrading images on their prints. Even the most carefully stored and protected pictures will see their luster and vibrancy diminish as time rolls on.
