Until last year, the best Google Photos alternatives weren't something that a lot of us were looking for. Because not only was Google Photos a great service, but it provided unlimited storage for free. 

Unfortunately, that generous policy ended last June. Now, if you reach your limit of 15GB storage across all your Google services (including Gmail, Google Drive and Google Photos), you have to either start deleting photos or start paying for more storage. (For more details, see our guide to Google Photos). 

Why you can trust Creative Bloq Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.
