Where and how do you store your pictures/videos?

So our iMac, Macbook and 2 iPhones are full of pictures and videos. It' something we should have figured out earlier...but I suppose better late than never. To my question, where do you store all your photos and videos?

Is an external hard drive best? Or somewhere online like the Cloud or Google photo? We want something simple, safe and easy to use.

Help?! Suggestions!?

Thanks

Depends on your purpose. If they are all simply family pictures and not meant for professional or hobbyist purposes, Google Photos has unlimited photo and video storage (at compressed but still good quality). You also have iCloud which is relatively for 50gb, and since you are in the Apple ecosystem, it's very simple to sync. Both are as simple as it gets.

I store mine on my laptop and have a backup on an external WD Passport hard drive.
