From 98% to 13% drop in usage…
A couple of days ago I noticed that my free 1 GB Picasa Web Album storage usage has dropped significantly from 98% to an amazing 13%.
I was like, ‘Whaa?’
Images under 800px do not count!
Later I found out that Picasa Web Album has stopped counting images under 800px AND videos under 15 mins against your usage – which means…
…If I got this announcement right, I have unlimited online storage as long as I keep my images under 800px AND my videos under 15 mins.
I don’t know about you, but we love us some free online storage…
Some (ungrateful) commenters on the above post said that increasing the limit to 1024px would’ve been better.
But hey, for the price tag -FREE- I can’t complain. Besides, considering the fact that it significantly reduce my quota it seems that most of my images are already within the limit anyway.
Other things about Picasa that make us the happy dance?
– Picnik, their web-based integrated photo editing thingy? Not that bad for quick and dirty editing.
– I can use Picasa to offload my images that are posted on this blog (and on our Facebook page).
– I can use my Google groups to limit who can see which photo albums.
– I love how fast and easy it is to go from inserting my memory card to a ready-to-share-with mom-dad-and-grandma online album.
Everybody does the happy dance!
So, that news made us do a short happy dance because who, especially those about to embark on long term travel, doesn’t like free (and unlimited) online storage?
