Pop Quiz CTL what service has 1/2 billion users? Go to the head of the class if you guessed Google Photos. Google is self declaring that this is your photo app of choice. And I agree with them for the following reasons.
- Drop dead easy to use.
- Unlimited free storage with a google account
- Sharing is a no brainer
- Making movies is very simple
- Backup is automatic.
There is a great article about Google Photos here
In Gualaceo, an hour’s bus ride from Cuenca lies the home of Ecuagenera, the home of over 6000 varieties of Orchids. You can take a tour of the facility for $3 per person and see how the orchids are developed and sold.
This was my second visit and was well worth the trip. Run, don’t walk to Ecuagenera
It is has been 8 months since I started using the Prisma Photo Editing App. The number of effects have grown to 44. As I mentioned in my first review –
WARNING!, WARNING! Do not load Prisma Photo App if you have an immediate appointment because you’re going to be immediately addicted to this great photo filter editor. This app could not be simpler.
- Load your photo
- Choose your filter
- Adjust the intensity
The app is free and runs on IOS and Android. My only complaint is that the saved edited photos does not have enough resolution to print these fantastic works of art.
Email me your favorite Prisma photo and I”ll put it up on my next post.
Below are 4 of my favorites
I snap about 200 photos per month. Everyday I get a message from Amazon Prime Photos of the photos I have stored from that date last year, 2015, 2014.
Today it was a special announcement since last year on this date we had friends from Oregon visit and I invited my Spanish teacher and her cousin’s family.
Can you find a photo you snapped on this day last year?
Thank you for voting. I also received some emails and your choice is…
The Google Photos App is my Go To photo editor/storage tool. It’s easy, powerful and there is the unlimited storage hook that makes this app (IMHO) the best.
Computerworld has an excellent article and video on tips to better use the app.

The photo below was edited with Google Photos.
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)
