Google-Picasa icon

Google-Picasa icon…if you upload photos in a format of maximum 2048 x 2048 pixels and upload videos up to 15 minutes length, you will get it! This is true for Picasa users with a Google+ profile. If you do not have a Google+ profile the upload limit is 800 x 800 pixel for free uploading photos, for video it is the same as with a Google+ profile. Detailed information can be found on Picasa help.

Picasa Web Albums offers 1 GB of free storage for photos and videos. However, files under certain size limits don’t count towards this free storage limit. This applies to uploads for other Google product that store photos and videos in Picasa Web Albums, including Blogger, Google+ and Google Maps. The free storage sizes are good for sharing photos on the web, but if you prefer to upload your images at a larger size for better quality (archival or print), you can buy more storage at any time.

If you have signed up for Google+:

  • Free storage limits: Photos up to 2048 x 2048 pixels and videos up to 15 minutes won’t count towards your free storage.
  • Automatic resizing: All photos uploaded in Google+ will be automatically resized to 2048 pixels (on their longest edge) and won’t count towards your free storage quota. All photos uploaded from the Picasa software or in Picasa Web Albums over the free size limit will count towards your 1 GB of free storage. When you reach your storage limit, any new photos you upload larger than the free size limit will be automatically resized to 2048 pixels (on their longest edge).

If you haven’t signed up for Google+:

  • Free storage limits: Photos up to 800 x 800 pixels and videos up to 15 minutes won’t count towards your free storage.
  • Automatic resizing: All photos uploaded over the free size limit will count towards your 1 GB of free storage. When you reach your storage limit, any new photos you upload to Picasa Web larger than the free size limit will be automatically resized to 800 pixels (on their longest edge).

Note: If you reach your storage limit when uploading from the Picasa desktop software, you’ll only be able upload at free storage sizes. Larger uploads will not be automatically resized to the free storage limit.

Taking everything into account this means free unlimited storage space for photos at a specific resolution and short videos!

Stay tuned! 😉
