In the race for online services to become all things to all people, Amazon is offering an adjunct to its cloud storage: unlimited storage of pictures for only $11.99 per year, and if you have Amazon Prime, it’s completely free. (Amazon full unlimited cloud storage is $59.99 per year.)

But wait, that’s not all. The unlimited photo storage also includes 5 gigabytes of storage for videos and other files.

Explains Amazon, “Store your photos safely in Cloud Drive and you can access them anywhere, from almost any device by signing in with your Amazon account. Cloud Drive offers free mobile apps, secure access from any computer, and it’s built in to all Fire devices.”

If you don’t have Amazon Prime, then you need to sign up for the Unlimited Photo Service, however there is a free trial period.

As The Verge points out, Amazon’s unlimited photo service is “less intuitive than some of its peers, and like many included-as-part-of-Prime services {Ed. note: for example Amazon Prime Music Service}, it feels more “good enough” than “great”, adding that “This is one service that won’t let you import photos from social networks, even though millions of people in its target audience likely store their photos on Facebook.”

On the other hand, if you already have Amazon Prime, then it costs you nothing to try it.

Of course, as we have cautioned before, there are both privacy and security concerns about cloud storage of any type, including the fact that law enforcement agencies can access your cloud-stored data without a warrant.

Still, if you want to try it, you can sign up for Amazon Unlimited Photo Storage here.
