For many years google photos have been one of the best options offering free unlimited photo storage that all changes on June 1, 2021, any photo uploaded after that date will count towards your 15 gigabytes of free Google Drive storage and give you additional choices offering free photo storage we’ll count down the top five alternatives to Google Photos let’s get started.
MEGA based in New Zealand this cloud storage and file hosting service offers a generous 50 gigabytes for free signing up just be aware that after 30 days the storage limit will drop to just 15 gigabytes. So this might not work best for those of you with a large collection of photos and videos one of the best features and why many people love it is that it uses end-to-end encryption controlled by you this means that no one can see your data, not even the staff at mega. Just like the others coming up in addition to being available for Windows Mac and Linux apps are also available for Android and iOS if you ever need more than the free storage offered mega has plans that start at around $6 per month.
What I’m sure most of you have heard of by now the service has changed quite a bit since its founding back in 2004. now it’s more of a social network with a large community of photographers for free you can upload up to 1000 images in full resolution of their service. Also lets you showcase your best photos that you make available browse works by others and follow photographers that you appreciate if you ever have the need to upload more than one thousand images Flickr Pro for around $7 per month gives you unlimited storage and advanced stats you won’t find elsewhere.
This cloud service platform not as well known as the others are. The service based in Sweden offers a massive 100 gigabytes of storage for free one downside is the 512-megabyte upload file size limit which might be an issue, if you’re uploading large videos but shouldn’t be any problem with uploading photos on the positive side they don’t have any limits for downloading or viewing any of your photos or files. It also offers end-to-end encryption and offers a referral bonus of up to 500 gigabytes for referring friends. Degoo is ad-supported with their free plan and you do have to log in at least once every 90 days to keep your free account active if you go with one of their paid plans those start at around three dollars per month for 500 gigabytes with no ads and you get additional features.
OneDrive not only is available for windows it’s also available for Mac Os, Android and iOS folders backed up from your PC are available online to view or edit without the need to download them first. Files and folders can also be shared with individuals that don’t have OneDrive to view or edit if you subscribe to Microsoft 365 which used to be known as office 365. This one should be a no-brainer for you you get 1 terabyte of total storage included with Microsoft 365 personal and 1 terabyte per person up to six people with Microsoft 365 family. Otherwise, you have the option of the basic free plan but the storage limit is a paltry five gigabytes.
At last one of the popular alternative to Google Photos is Amazon Photos. This one is often overlooked but if you have an Amazon Prime Membership you get unlimited photo storage and up to five gigabytes of video storage, unlike google photos which compress your images photos stored on amazon photos are in full resolution. If you’re not a Prime member you can still get up to five gigabytes of free photo and video storage combined while that’s not too great I guess it’s better than nothing.
If you ever need to pay for a service Flickr would be my recommendation with unlimited storage for around seven dollars with Amazon Photos for the same price you only get one terabyte.
