Need extra storage for Gmail and Picasa Web Albums?

I use Gmail as my email service (Google Apps for domain). Currently, I am using only 20% of the total storage given (2 Gb). Well, my email traffic is not that high, so 2 GB is more than enough (for now). But, for some people, 2 GB is not enough. Picasa Web Albums is another Google products that having a kind of limitation for the storage. It offers 1 Gb of storage now.

Now, if you think that you need more storage, and you still want to have Gmail as your primary email service and Picasa Web Albums, you can upgrade your account. Yahoo! Mail already offered unlimited storage, and Flickr also have a pro-account (unlimited storage for $24.95/year). Google’s paid storage will be used across Google service that supports storage (Currently, Google Mail and Picasa Web Albums).

Let’s say we use those services (email and web album). At Google, the price may vary. You can choose from these packages:

  • 6 GB ($20.00 per year) 
  • 25 GB ($75.00 per year) 
  • 100 GB ($250.00 per year) 
  • 250 GB ($500.00 per year)

At Yahoo!, $24.95/year for Flickr pro account. Of course, it’s not only about “price”. There are some other things to consider like features, supports, etc. I still use all free account (from Google and Yahoo!). All suits my need. Personally, if I want to purcase a pro-version service, I choose Flickr. Anyone want to buy me a Flickr Pro Account? :D

  1. saya suka dengan yg beda, maksudnya gak sama dengan sebagian besar orang.
    Namun, susah mencari free image hosting setara dengan Flickr.
    Tadi dapat snugmugs tapi kelihatannya berbayar. Cari yang gratis saja, mungkin akan pakai Zoom-R , atau bertahan dengan flickr.
    Yah … kere sih.

  2. Well there is a flickr clone: ipernity. Its free version offers:

    • 200MB/month upload limit
    • I never see a storage limit nor a 200-viewable-photos-in-our-stream like flickr’s free version
    • what’s more, it allows us to upload audio and video (podcast anyone?)
    • and we can even create a blog

    You can view my photos on ipernity.
