In the past year a lot of online storage companies have sprung up and a lot of them had to shut down. With the exception of Adrive (and now Skydrive) most companies only give away a measly 1 or 2 GBs for free with their basic offering. I mean come ‘on, Gmail gives more space than that.
The only problem is the space available with Gmail can only be used to store Email. What if I wanted to use the extra space lying around (7GB and counting) for storing Photos.
Gphotospace is your solution my friend. It is a free firefox extension that uses Gmail to store all your photos online. Donwload and install Gphotospace from the above link and you’re all set.
To start using Gphotospace (Can I just write Gphoto from now on, please ?), Click on the Tools menu and select Gphotospace from there. You will be asked to login to Gphoto with your Gmail account credentials.
From here on the process is as simple as Creating a new album, uploading your photos and Saving the album. The interface is very simple and useable.
Gphoto also lets you share the album that you just uploaded. Select the album that you want to share and click the Share button. You will be asked the Email address of the person with whom you want to share the album and that’s all. Simple, isn’t it ?
What do you guys use for storing you photos online ? Any other free solutions that we should know of ?
