I sync my photos from my iPad with Google Plus and Dropbox. One day I found that Dropbox doesn't have enough space for my photos, but Google Plus takes all of them.

How much storage space do I have at Google Plus?

And another thing: does my storage space at Google Drive intersect with my storage space at Google Plus?

Google Drive, Gmail, and Google+ Photos give you 15 GB of storage space for free. This storage limit only applies if you've chosen to upload "Original" size photos (bigger than 16 megapixels) on your desktop or with Auto Backup on your Android device.

Any photos you upload less than 2048px (or that you let Google+ resize for you) won't count against your limits.

Your storage is shared across Google Drive, Gmail, & Google+ Photos, but you can buy more space if you're running low.

If you use Google Apps at work or school, you have at least 30 GB of storage.

So, if I have photos less then 2048px, I could download infinite count of them? – gaussblurinc Jul 5 '13 at 8:21
Yep, that's the idea. At least that's what the links from Google say. – Andrew Lott Jul 5 '13 at 8:24
@loldop I think you mean upload, but yes you are correct. – ComputerLocus Jul 5 '13 at 14:40
So how come when I upload a bunch of 500x500 pictures to Google Drive, they still count against my storage limit? – Michael Oct 24 '13 at 22:38
@Michael upload them to Google+ Photos (Picasa). – marines Jun 20 '14 at 9:13
