I need to upload more than 800MB of pictures onto a photo sharing service such as Google Picasa, but I don't have space for it.

I was considering to use Flickr (can I upload 800MB at once ?) although I don't like the idea of splitting my pictures over multiple services.

Of course I don't want to pay.

  • Free storage of Picasa is 1024MB and you can upload them at once using the standalone Picasa app. – Lipis Mar 21 '11 at 10:55
  • Flickr will give you 1TB of space plus the storage limits throughout the Google Apps (Drive, Google+, Picasa have been haromized, having a minimum of 25GB. – Jacob Jan Tuinstra May 24 '13 at 6:24

I'm not a Flickr user but from what I've read, Flickr offers 300 MB of free storage each calendar month with storage counter reset every month, so it's not an option.
If you want to stick with Picasa without paying the fee for 20GB storage, you need to resize your pictures to a resolution lower than 800x800 as pictures that size no longer count towards your storage limit, more infos here.

  • @Kraymer - Flickr offers 300MB of free storage per month for free accounts. – codingbadger Mar 21 '11 at 10:45
  • @Barry It doesn't offer the best UI though.. Picasa WebAlbums is offering much better user experience with the minimalistic UI. – Lipis Mar 21 '11 at 10:52
  • and $5/year is not too much for 20GB of storage and for the backup of your valuable photos :) – Lipis Mar 21 '11 at 10:53
  • @Lipis: Well that depends on whether you like the minimalistic UI ;-) I must admit though, I do find Flickr to be a bit "all over the place" – codingbadger Mar 21 '11 at 10:54
  • @Barry Thx, it's corrected now! – kraymer Mar 21 '11 at 10:56

You can try sugarsync.com. It is not exactly a photo sharing service, but it has some specific functionalities for photo/album sharing.

You can use our site, http://www.morguefile.com, We allow for unlimited uploads but its not private (anyone can see your photos). There is a free stock photo section or a portfolio section.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned it, but there is 25GB of free storage with Windows Live Skydrive. All you need is a Windows Live ID (i.e. a Hotmail account).

Store, access, and share thousands of documents, photos, and Microsoft Office files on Windows Live SkyDrive. SkyDrive password-protects your files so you control who has access to them.
