Amazon Treats Prime Members To Free Unlimited Photo Storage In The Cloud With ‘Prime Photos’

Adding to the pile of awesome already heaped onto Amazon Prime memberships, the e-tailer this week introduced Prime Photos, which is yet another tantalizing benefit for Prime subscribers. In this case, Prime Photos provides free unlimited photo storage in Amazon Cloud Drive, so the only restrictions you have to worry about are those imposed by your ISP.

"This time of year in particular, families are capturing thousands of photos of holiday parties, family gatherings and opening presents," said Greg Greeley, Vice President Amazon Prime. "With free unlimited photo storage, we’re providing one more reason for members to use Prime every day. Prime has always allowed members to conveniently save time and save money, and now with Prime Photos they can save memories too."

Indeed, Amazon's carefully timed announcement comes as we head into the busy holiday season. The company already boasts tens of millions of Prime customers, and will undoubtedly add thousands more as we gear up for what could be the biggest online shopping year in history.

Those who plan to take advantage of the Prime Photos feature can upload snapshots from their iOS and Android devices, Fire tablets and Fire phone, and Mac and Windows computers. They can also access their online photos from just about any device, including on big screen TVs via Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and select LG and Samsung smart TVs.

Amazon also says you can add photos to Cloud Drive in their original version to alleviate the worry of losing the full resolution image.
