I like the convenience of having all photos in one spot, which is one reason I shoot in JPEG rather than RAW. But with limited hard disk space on the MacBook, I can foresee the day when I'll have to archive some photos elsewhere.
On a related note, does anyone know of a company/service that will scan photos in bulk? What I have is a pile of old photos (mostly 4"x6"), but what I want is a bunch of JPEG images. The stumbling block is the prohibitative amount of time required to scan photos one by one on a flatbed scanner.
