I was thinking to buy an online photo album storage to store all my photo albums. From my previous trip to UK, I have already taken around 6GB of photos! So I do need a larger space for my photos and it’s price must be affordable. I have reviewed and compared two online photos storage provider: Flickr from Yahoo and Picasa Web Albums from Google.
Below are the pricing plans for both Flickr and Picasa Web Albums:
– Unlimited uploads (10MB per photo)
– Unlimited storage
– Unlimited bandwidth
– Unlimited photosets
– Archiving of high-resolution original images
– The ability to replace a photo
– Post any of your photos in up to 60 group pools
– Ad-free browsing and sharing
– $24.95 USD per year
Picasa Web Albums
– 10 GB ($20.00 USD per year)
– 40 GB ($75.00 USD per year)
– 150 GB ($250.00 USD per year)
– 400 GB ($500.00 USD per year)
I’m not worrying the reliability of the storage and features provided by both companies because they are giant companies with very good reputation.
With the photos I have right now, I think the Flickr’s plan is much more worthy. I can easily hit 10GB limit offered by Google and if so, I will require to pay $75.00 USD per year or maybe more! With Flickr’s plan, the money I need to pay is not affected by the amount of photo that I have.
Without thinking too much, I have bought the Flickr plan for 2 years :)
I have took some times and affords to find the pricing plan for both provider. So I put the links in this post just in case someone need it.
