Bah, Flickr is doing away with their free terabyte of storage. I've got 20,000 pictures backed up there. They'll soon be deleting 19,000 of them. They're going to charge $50/year for unlimited storage.

What services can beat that? Anything?

That's my primary storage. I enjoyed having an on-line back-up. It was a no-brainer in case I ever had a fire or hard drive failure.

Now, for the first time in years, I have to consider the cost.

Amazon offer unlimited photo backup with Prime, I use that and it's fine

Amazon's interface is horseshit.

I'd go with Flickr or look at Dropbox or Drive.

I have prime. Maybe I'll check that out.

I thought about Drive, but I can't imagine the interface is worth a shit.

Drive is awesome, particularly if you're an Android person.

$5 a month for unlimited storage and you're already balls deep with 20k images. I think there's an easy answer here.

B, stop saving all of the hot girls thread photos and you won't have so many to backup

Yeah, I'm certainly leaning that way.
