Google photos is arguably the best cloud photo album service in the world, hardly one of them. It allows users to store personal photos in two ways, with 15g of free space if the original image quality is stored, and unlimited capacity if the high-quality storage (16 million pixels of photos and 1080p of video) is compressed by Google algorithm. It also has powerful AI algorithms that can automatically classify photos, identify people, and even help you optimize photos. < / P > < p > however, this may change after next June 1. Google announced a change to its storage strategy in its official blog. From June 1, 2021, all photos uploaded by users will take up 15g of free space, whether original or high quality. The high-quality photos that have been stored before are not subject to this restriction, which is still a matter of conscience. < / P > < p > then the point is: users of pixel phones can still enjoy unlimited space when storing high-quality photos. In fact, this has always been a hidden benefit of the pixel series, but the policy has changed again and again. In the first few generations of pixel, the original image quality photos can be stored free of charge, and there is no space limit. Later, it has gradually been limited. < / P > < p > the current rule is that pixel generation 1-5 can store unlimited high-quality photos, only pixel generation 1 can store unlimited original image quality photos, and generation 2 and generation 3 have time limits. The specific rules can be seen in the figure below. < / P > < p > if you don’t have a pixel phone and 15GB of space is not enough, you can only unlock more space through Google one, and the price is as follows. However, for domestic users, it’s troublesome enough to use Google services, let alone to fiddle with payment. So now that the big eyed Google photos has defected, is there any free cloud photo album replacement? < / P > < p > in fact, before geek’s choice, Baidu’s online storage team’s “moment photo album” has been introduced. Its selling point is that the original image quality is unlimited space, and it also supports card point video and other production tools. Its functions are relatively comprehensive. < / P > < p > other cloud photo albums have no such courage any more. If the free space is small or large, you need to buy it again. The time photo album of the headline system, 5g free space, the advantage is the algorithm of the headlines, classification photos more accurate. Tencent’s photo album manager 1t free space, the advantage is to share wechat, QQ is more convenient. Icloud is only suitable for Apple users, with the advantage of seamless multi device synchronization. (more cloud service tools can be seen in this article) < / P > < p > in fact, choosing a cloud photo album can not only focus on how much free space there is and whether the price is expensive, but also the experience of using it is very important. Save so many photos, how to find what you want quickly. The details also include whether it can help you automatically remove duplicate, fuzzy scrap. In addition, you need to see whether it can serve for a long time, or whether you can use it for a long time. Because the cost of this kind of product migration is too high, sorting and searching by several platforms are very troublesome. < / P > < p > I have been whoring for so long. In fact, I can understand that Google photos has tightened the free policy. Otherwise, the pressure on the server will be too great. Isn’t Baidu disk doing similar things? Anyway, after using Google photos for several years, I didn’t want to use any other service. In other words, I didn’t use icloud when I used iPhone. The reason is that I don’t want to be tied to a platform. Second, Google photos is better. IPhone photo albums are catching up in recent years. < / P > < p > so the solution is to pay for the cloud space. Anyway, most of the photos I save are taken by mobile phones, and high-quality storage is enough. Google algorithm is still very good, and it will not compress too much image quality. Or you can buy a pixel as a network disk. In fact, there is no need to buy the pixel 1 generation for the original image quality. The machines in 2016 are too old. I don’t know when the policy will change. Please keep the original picture quality. < / P > < p > now domestic mobile phone systems also have their own cloud photo album function. If you are a loyal fan of a brand, it’s OK, just like iPhone users use icloud. If you don’t want to be bound by a platform, I still suggest choosing a reliable third-party cloud photo album.
