    How do you people store your negatives and photographs?

    I've put most of my better photos into cheap albums to save them from getting scratched but I have loads that although not scrap I would like to keep them as references, memories or possible rescues later when I've learnt a bit more about PS.

    I've also got loads of negatives that, although I'll probably never need them, I'd still like to keep safe and in a way that at least I'll have a chance of finding what I'm looking for when I need to!

    Any suggestions appreciated!

    Negative are in the original covers from various proscessing places. These are then stored (numbered) in two large-ish IKEA wooden boxes (£5.00 I think).

    Slides stored in folders on the wardrobe out of the sun.

    Digital stored by date ordered folder in date-Number sequence (31052005-001).

    All being currently listed on MS Excel.

    I take my negs, make a contact sheet, tape the contact sheet on a manilla envelope, write the roll # and date on the envelope, put each strip of negs into its own little plastic baggie and put those in the envelope.

    you should really invest in some archival storage materials. they are the only way to really preserve and protect your film.

    sleeves:

    and binders:

    and for your photos, try a century box:

    these products are all acid-free and ensure that your negatives and photos will last a long time!:D
