Digital images just stack up on your hard drive or at flickr.  Physical images require physical storage space.

I’m still looking for the perfect way to store my medium format stereo slides, but have made some notes covering some things I’ve tried.  Special mention is made of Peter Thomson’s 3D Treasures storage boxes.

Since first publishing this, I’ve heard from a couple of other photographers who have offered their storage methods for consideration.

Dan Vint suggests boxes from Light Impressions for storing slides.  The company offers several sizes of boxes.  Dan says he’s using the boxes designed for 4×5 images with good results.  If these sizes aren’t to your liking, he pointed me at building supplies from Hollanders from which you can build your own.

Dorothy Mladenka says she stores her slides in boxes which originally held 250 sheets of 5×7 photo paper.  They let her store her slides on edge and appear to be a very good fit.  Of course with the decreasing popularity of darkroom printing, these may now be hard to come by in any quantity.
