Is there a Cloud Storage for Dummies?

I have about 8,000 photos on my home computer and I'd be bummed to lose them. It's time for me to learn about cloud storage. Halp?

I'm using a Mac Mini, running 10.6.8 and my photos are, of course, in iPhoto. I do have everything backed up to an external drive, but I'm thinking about cloud storage for the additional level of safety. The issues:
-- I really need this explained in the simplest possible way, as if I were mentally handicapped.
-- I would like this not to be expensive. Not sure if the large amount of photos makes that possible.
-- If there are companies offering similar services, but one has a simpler interface, I'd gravitate towards that. I am not particularly computer savvy.
-- Because I know so little about the topic I'm not even sure about what sorts of questions I should be asking when considering this, so lay 'em on me, please.
(I have looked at previous questions; the most recent similar ones are from about six months ago and I'm guessing things might have changed since then.)
