Does one exist big enough? I have a LOT. I'm hoping somebody more technically minded might point me in the right direction as I know...nothing

Can you get them onto a laptop then transfer to memory sticks?

Do you need to store them in a hard drive? In the cloud might be easier?

I tried to get them to laptop and there's not enough memory. I have considered cloud storage, I just thought it might be a bit cheaper to buy a drive

A 1TB drive is fairly cheap these days.
That would store a lot! It’s what I use.

What's the size of the data you need to store? It can't be that much if it's on an IPhone.

@DrDreReturns 128gb

With cloud storage you'll probably need to pay a recurring fee, whereas an external harddrive like @Proudling suggests would be a one off cost. Most will have capacity well in excess of your requirements.
Bear in mind if the hard drive fails you would lose your photos unless you backed them up elsewhere. Cloud storage might be more secure in this respect.

If you have a Microsoft Office subscription that includes 1TB of cloud storage. It includes Office apps like Word and Excel.
