Best Free Flickr Alternatives To Save Your Photos Online (Free Storage).

Free Storage For Photos

With Flickr downloading its free 1TB storage to a distinctly ungenerous 1,000 pictures, now it the ideal time to find an alternative home for your photos. In this post we going to tell you about six best free Flicker alternatives which you can use to store your photos online.

List of Free Flickr Alternatives.

01. Google Photos.

Google Photos

Once upon a time, Google Photos was part of the ill-fated Google + service. Now, spun out as a standalone app, it’s a near-faultless photo-focused storage service that offers users unlimited storage for free.

First, a note about that ‘unlimited storage’. There’s no such thing as a free lunch: if you take advantage of its infinite space, Google will cap your image to 16 megapixels and 1080p for videos. If you’re a home user uploading snapshots from your phone or budget digital camera, it shouldn’t be a problem. But if you want your high-resolution photos stored in all their original glory, you’ll be limited to 15GB across all Drive services, including photos.

Google’s paid-for storage upgrades are good value- 100GB costs just $2.05 a month, and more options are being rolled out under the new Google One plan ( which shares storage across Photos, Drive and Gmail, and can be shared with family members.

The layout is uncomplicated, whether on the web or the identical smartphone app. With its spacious overview, viewing, uploading, sharing, and editing is effective and intuitive. When you open a photo, the viewing experience remains faithful, with no rogue pixelation or downgraded resolutions. And that big old The search bar is clever enough to find all your photos of, say, a field, without you needing to tag them.

Google Photos crowning glory is the Assistant. Tucked away on the left-hand sidebar, and also under the Create tab at the top of the screen, there’s a media editor that’s smart enough to tweak a photo’s lighting, add filters, animate still images and cut videos into GIFs. Once you’re happy with the results, press Save to store the AI’s handiwork.

02. OneDrive.

Microsoft’s OneDrive- our preferred cloud storage service for some time- is a simple tool that integrates well with both desktops and smartphones. Sign up for free to get 5GB storage plus Microsoft Office Online, which includes Word and Excel (Office 365 subscribers get 1TB of storage for free). However, it lacks Google Photos’ pin-sharp focus and elegance of use.

The sidebar’s Photo hub lets you explore all pictures chronologically. The menu across the top lets you view them by Albums, Tags, and Places. Select a photo to unlock an array of options, including edit, share and embed.

A nice touch is OneDrive’s album creator, which automatically collates your photos based on the data they were taken. As a ‘smart’ cloud-storage solution, we were also impressed with OneDrive’s ability to cleverly recognize and tag themes, including people, animals, sunsets, cities and much more (weirdly, even ‘#doors’ and ‘#meetingrooms’ had their own tags).

03. iCloud.

There’s barely a cigarette paper's difference between Apple’s iCloud and OneDrive is our recommended general cloud-storage service. Both offer 5GB for free and syncing is quick and simple. But the old-fashioned iCloud doesn’t categorize images, which forces you to create and manage your folders. It all comes down to price: If you’re an iPhone owner wanting a massive 2TB storage and don’t need free Microsoft Office, then iCloud’s $9 a month is good value.

04. Dropbox.

Once the cloud-storage king, now struggling against its better-equipped rivals, Dropbox suffers the same problem as iCloud: a lack of file-type organization. Files and photos are lumped together, leaving you to sort everything out yourself. Free users only get 2GB storage, though images aren’t downgraded or capped. But we appreciate the File Explorer integration, which, like Windows’ local OneDrive folder makes uploads quick and easy.

05. Canon Irista.

Irista, from top camera brand Canon, gives free users an uncommonly generous 15GB just for signing up, which is tempting in a sea of 1GB and 5GB offers. Sadly, it’s let down by an inconsistent service: syncing across devices is slow, uploading is slow, and we struggled to add even modestly sized pictures without receiving error messages.
