Digital photos ought to last forever. Digital photos don't fade with time and can be protected against natural disasters such as fire and floods. That's the theory, anyway. And yet if you're one of the millions of people with a digital camera, the chances of your great-grandchildren ever seeing your digital photos are very slim. Find out why the odds are stacked against you, and what you can do to increase the chances that your family historian 200 years from now will be able to enjoy the photos you're taking now.
