Like it or not, now it’s almost here: Google’s photo ends unlimited storage for free on June 1. Since then, every photo you are uploaded (including the “compressed” storage storage pics) is calculated towards your Google Drive storage limit except comes from a pixel cellphone. If you need more space, you have to pay for Google One packages that start at $ 2 per month for a 100GB drive room and scale to 2TB for $ 10 per month.
Every photo you upload before June 1 will not be taken into account with a lid, so you will want to get one last backup if you can. Google also makes it easier to delete unwanted photos through a tool that finds a blurry snapshot, screenshot, and other items you can usually delete.
Google explained the last November step as a step needed for “Keep Pace” with demand for storage. It didn’t expect 80 percent of photo users to press the lid for three years, although more than a problem for people whose free drive space was loaded with other content.
You are not completely stuck if you rely on Google photos as a backup for your image library. If you need a free service, you can use a cost without a cost for services such as Dropbox or Flickr if you have a simple collection. And there is a real possibility of other paid services you use maybe offering its own cloud storage. Prime Amazon subscriptions provide free limitless photo storage (plus 5GB video), while Microsoft 365 membership offers 1TB onedrive space per person. Apple iCloud can also help if you are IOS or Mac users, even though it’s more than synchronization services than full storage.
