The general purpose tape is usually used for everything but photos or anything archival. Meaning, if it's really important to you, use the really important tape - the non-acidic, so the one you are asking about is not it. You are referring to the general use tape. Look for the archival version for your photos. I can see how this might be confusing because, at least on my computer screen, that part of the description for each of the two types of tape get cut off since there isn't enough room. Is that clear as mud? Compare the prices and pay more for the tape that's more long-lasting.
