Digital Camera World Verdict

Amazon Photos is great if you just want to store unlimited full-resolution photos, whether they be in compressed or raw file formats. It's a brilliant service to have as part of a Prime membership, but if you don't already have Prime and want cloud storage for more than just photos, you'll likely be better off signing up to a conventional cloud storage provider instead.

When you think of the benefits you get from an Amazon Prime subscription: exclusive discounts, priority shipping and Prime Video streaming immediately come to mind. But did you know that signing up to Prime also gives you unlimited full-resolution cloud photo storage in the form of Amazon Photos?

Now we’re seeing cloud photo storage providers like Google restricting the resolution of stored images, while the likes of Flickr cap its free storage at 1 terabyte, truly unlimited online photo storage is becoming increasingly special.
