Store all your photos for free

Flickr offers massive 1 terabyte of storage



By Clark Howard


Everyone's favorite photo sharing site is getting better.

Flickr has announced they'll now be offering users 1 terabyte of storage (1,000 gigabytes) for photos and video. The site is free to use for basic service.

Not sure exactly how much space that is? Put it this way: Parent company Yahoo! says users could take one picture every hour for the next 40 years and still not crack the 1 terabyte mark.

Or to put it another way, that's 537,731 photos at the 6.5 megapixel resolution of today's most commonly used smartphones.

"At Flickr, we believe you should share all your images in full resolution, so life’s moments can be relived in their original quality," Yahoo said in a blog post. "No limited pixels, no cramped formats, no memories that fall flat."
