Amazon has added yet another perk for Amazon Prime subscribers. Starting on Tuesday, the company will make Prime Photo available for all Prime Subscribers, which means you can store an unlimited number of photos in Amazon’s cloud without additional charges.
If you have a iPhone or Android phone all your photos can automatically be backed up to the Amazon Cloud. Now that phone cameras have 8 + megapixel cameras it’s great to have a repository for your videos and photos. I just started using the service today.

There is a free advertised supported version of Flickr. I have been a pro version subscriber since 2004 and I have 9000+ photos and videos stored. My annual subscription is $24. Below are some photos that have more than 500 views over the last 10 years.
