If you were to list popular cloud photo storage services your first picks would probably be Google Photos and Flickr, Amazon won’t figure on that list primarily because the company doesn’t offer a standalone service. Instead its photo storage service is part of Amazon Prime, the $99 per year program that provides other perks like free two-day shipping as well as music and video streaming. Now though Amazon has made a change which will help drive adoption of its service.

Last year Amazon announced that Prime members would receive q, they really can upload as many photos as they want provided that they keep paying $99 per year for Amazon Prime.

The company has now announced that it’s going to allow users to share their unlimited photo storage with one other person in the household, it’s not a groundbreaking move and yet it will allow more people to opt for Amazon Cloud Drive for storing photos as opposed to some other service.

Not to mention it adds more value to Amazon Prime, the company regularly makes such changes to provide more bang for members’ bucks. Amazon’s cloud storage service will store the photos in their full resolution and it’s even possible to store RAW files without having to worry about storage limits.

Users will continue to enjoy unlimited photo storage if they keep paying for Amazon Prime or opt for the Cloud Drive only plan that’s a bit cheaper.
