OK, what to do with the thousands of snapshots sitting in shoe boxes stacked in the top of the closet? It’s a problem that’s bedeviled photographers, amateur shutterbugs and pros alike, since before the dawn of the digital age.

This was such a simple solution to a classic dilemma — picture hoarding. Most of the firm’s business is done via the Internet, with a simple fill-it-up box that you mail in. Toss everything in the prepaid box, drop it off at the post office, and a few days later a DVD appears along with your photos. It’s that easy.
