Amazon has added free photo storage for Prime members, the company announced today.
Prime Photos lets Prime members store an unlimited amount of photographs using Amazon’s Cloud Drive.
Greg Greely, Vice President of Amazon Prime said, “This time of year in particular, families are capturing thousands of photos of holiday parties, family gatherings and opening presents. 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.”
Amazon claims the photos are stored at the same resolution as the original image allowing customers access to full resolution files.
However, compatible file types are not noted, so it’s unclear if only jpegs are accepted or other formats such as RAW or TIFF files are accepted.
Files can be uploaded from phones, tablets, and computers, including Mac, Windows, iOS and Android devices, as well as Amazon’s Fire phone and tablets.
Photos can be viewed and accessed from a multitude of devices including some Samsung and LG smart TVs, PlayStation 3 and 4, and Amazon’s Fire TV and Fire TV Stick.
