Let’s discuss the differences between picasa photo storage limit for regular google user’s and new google+ members.
Picasa for Regular Google users:
1) Free size limit:
Free unlimited storage counts towards 800×800 pixels of photo and 15 mins video. But 10mp camera’s jpg photo files are 2500×2500 pixels so these photos are not count towards free storage.
2) Over the free size limit:
So all uploaded photo over the free size (800×800 pixels) limit is 1GB. After crossing this limit, either you have to upgrade the membership else photo will not be uploaded online.
Picasa for Google+ Member:
1) Size limit:
Photo size should be 2048×2048 or Google + will automatically resized higher resolution image to 2048×2048.
2) Storage Limit:
No 1 GB limit. That means unlimited photo storage and this is a big perk from google+ over google user
So whom are you waiting for, use sign up link for google+ profile with your gmail and use unlimited picasa storage. I’ll share other advantage of being on google+ in the coming days.
