I was looking to increase the storage for my picasa web albums. Google are providing 20 gb to be shared between gmail and picasa for 5$ a year. With the current exchange rate, works out to be just above 3 pounds.

I know that one could create multiple picasa accounts and link them for free (you get 1gb free picasa storage for every account). This will be useful for people who want to upload high resolution images under one album.

This is the cheapest image storage price that I am aware of (plz feel free to suggest better options).

Actual cost is £3.54 ($5 + $0.75 tax)

Was just about to post this as I bought 20GB earlier this evening to use with Picasa.

The price I paid was £3.54 as the actual cost is $5.75 (includes US tax @ $0.75).

Bargain! Deserves to be very hot.
#2
Been this price for a month or so, good deal though. Tempted to just go straight for the 80GB for $20 though.
#3
Does banks charge for buying is US dollars?

I noticed that if you have a UK Gmail account then its £5 so was hoping to buy in US.

Wish the offer for free WIFI SD Card applied to the UK as well. Would have went for that!

Thanks for correcting mate, let me see if I can update the price

Can't you just use two free accounts?

I know it's not exactly expensive but Microsoft give you 25GB for free.

If you use Picasa though, this is great as you can synchronise you albums really easily and then share with whoever you want.

Exactly, and Picasa is excellent software. The latest version includes automatic face recognition and tagging amongst the new features. So much easier to sync into one place online and link to other websites from there too. £3.54/year is well worth it.
#10
For anyone just wanting somewhere to store files, 10gb free @ http://www.4shared.com/

Edit: Voted hot :thumbsup: Amazing price for 20gb of storage space even better if using with Picasa/Gmail

Yeah, I quite like the simplicity and the options you get with picasa.

Ok, read the privacy policy and don't see anything untoward.
Methinks somebody doesn't like Google!

This is a superb deal but it's not exactly new. I bought this back in November at the same price.

You might also want to add that this paid storage is good for Google Docs as well. They're bringing out a feature that allows you to upload and share just about any file. Up to 250MB in size which is significantly larger than Skydrive's 50MB for those naysayers.
#17
I am about to buy this but I has been told that I have 7.49 GB free allowance in gmail already and I only used 0.5% of it. So am I buying exactly service thing but just some extra space? Thank you for any advise

Unless you are at or close to the allowance limit for Picasa or Google Docs theres no point.

Got to say that I also like the geeky pricing for 1TB+ storage plans :)
#20
thanks sean! so i will stick to my free gmail + nas behind my router as the storage then :-D

I'll take Microsofts Skydrive's 25gb for free (even with the 50mb limit per file) as you can integrate it seamlessly with Windows by using a free tool called Skydrive Explorer http://skydriveexplorer.com/ so it acts just like having another drive.

It is very cheap for a lot of storage but remember that it isn't private. Just like with your gmail and gdocs, Google will index anything you put up there and associate it with you.

My needs just aren't that great for a load of gigs online, especially with the paltry upload speeds you get with Virgin Media and most other service providers in the UK. So hot if you need it I guess.

Cheers mate. Will use this to backup my photos and documents :thumbsup:

Voted hot for price but it would be better if it didn't include your Gmail total IMHO.

It'd have been nice if the *entire* section had been posted instead of cutting out a line.

even with the extra lines on yours its still a horrible bit of contract, although i really doubt that google would do anything dodgy with your uploads...it wouldn't be worth the bad publicity if they did.

WOW! That is outrageous. ICE COLD!

I just use [url]www.adrive.com[/url] (50Gb free).
#29
Cold. I pay around $25 a year for unlimited on-line storage with Patrick Internet, which includes photo-album software and many other options that this doesn't and has no terms of use that gives away rights to anything I upload.

Given in a recent interview Google's chief exec basically stated that anyone who wanted privacy shouldn't use Google, i'd be very wary of using this.

They would need this to allow them to display your photos etc. to your friends and possibly even yourself. As they are publishing on their website for your friend to view they would need to have permission to publish, seems sensible to me. Lots of contracts are open to abuse but are still necessary for the system to work, google is being quite forward thinking about the use of your data and you can now request its not held on file, they generally move where the customers want to go (unless your in china)

Ah yes, the mighty Patrick Internet. The chances of them going belly up and losing all your data must be much less than Google......

A cut of the terms for Microsoft Live! skydive

...:"You understand that Microsoft may need and you hereby authorize Microsoft to use, modify, copy, distribute and display content posted on the service..."

Looks the same as google. Myspace has similar terms as well I think.

Unless your looking to monatize your own shots this isn't a problem - if you are dont upload them to anything apart from your OWN website where you control it all. Otherwise someone is bound to screw you over.
#33
COLD!

Until Google remove the stupid restriction of 1,000 photos per album with Picasa Web Albums, it's a waste of money. Sorry, but why should I split albums?

Better off using the free 20GB with Windows Live for photo backup which has no such restriction (as far as I know).

You still own the copyright, you can still do what you want with your works.
#35
What about encrypting the files/photos into 50Mb files- Google won't be able to "see" them.
#36
Excellent deal. Voted Hot!

For anyone wanting loads of free storage try http://www.adrive.com/

Offering 50gb Free.
#37
That terms of service seems pretty standard to me. All sites that let you upload photos have something similar. It is simply to cover their own backs. Do you honestly think Google with all its billions of profits each year is going to jeopardise its brand by trying to steal people's holiday pictures? That said, if it makes you uncomfortable then use another provider.
#38
is it 20GB + the growing space currently at around 7GB?

It depends on how you use it I suppose.. but in my opinion if you have an album with 1000+ photos then you aren't organising effectively.

Ridiculous statement.

If you have life-changing events such as a child or wedding where you can quite easily top 1,000 photos, regardless of whether you took them or not.
