16.1.2021 | New restrictions on Google Photos? Amazon Photos is here.
As reported by Ars - In November 2020, Google ceased its long-standing offer of free, unlimited high-resolution photo storage to anyone with a Gmail account. The new restrictions on Google Photos make a lesser-known competitor, Amazon Photos, becomes a focal point of interest to those who doesn’t want to purchase Google’s premium services.
Amazon Photos is free for anyone with an Amazon account, but without Amazon Prime membership, you're limited to 5GB. But if you are a Prime member, you get unlimited, original-resolution photo storage at no additional cost. However, videos will still have that 5GB cap.
Amazon Photos is for non-commercial, personal use only. You can take photos, you can share them with your friends and family, and so forth—but you can't run a photography business on the service without violating its terms.
