Flickr.com is my Goto application for storage and community. I have been a member for 14 years and have made friends around the world. I believe the power of Flickr is the community. Below is a 1 minute video of some of my photos but more importantly it reflects the choices of my flickr friends.
This is a popular topic for CTL subscribers since the majority of photos are now taken with a smartphone. Most smartphone have 16-32gb of storage and you can easily fill up most of that storage if you are regularly snapping photos. I use 3 redundant services.
Google Photos -High quality unlimited storage – free – When Android 7 is released – unlimited storage
Amazon Photos – orignial quality – unlimited storage $99 per year with other services
Flickr $24 per year for the pro version.
The real question is which service to you feel most comfortable. Google Photos is my first choice since it has the easiest photo editing element. Good article below.
Can you do it? If you have your Smartphone and your Flickr app than you probably can accomplish that request. I average about 200 photos shot on my smartphone a month. Now that I have no limits on storage I sometimes edit a photo and keep 5 versions of that photo.
Google will soon announce that you will have unlimited free storage ( in your original format ) for all your photos and videos. Amazon Prime Photo already offers unlimited storage for your photos.
I’m old enough to remember shooting photos on a film camera. Storing the prints in a shoebox and then never able to retrieve a photo that was more than 3 years old.
Run, don’t walk and get one of the 3 unlimited photo storage program/apps.
Flickr – 1 tb (500,000 photos) free
Google Photos – unlimited storage free
Amazon Prime Photos – unlimited storage ( $99 per year but includes other valuable services)
Flick.com is my goto choice for cloud photo storage and community. You get a terabyte of free storage. A great deal. I downloaded some photos which had more than 200 views and used Screenflow to make a short video. Enjoy.
