Google slashes price on Picasa storage

  • Google said it's dramatically reduced the price of Picasa storage - that's where your cherished family pictures are all in a cloud.

    In a blog posting, Google said that it's "dramatically" lowering its prices and will offer Picasa space at 20GB for $5 a year. It said that's twice as much storage for a quarter of the old prices.

    20GB, Google reckons, is enough space for over 10,000 pictures taken with a five megapixel camera.

    It estimates most people have less than 10GB of photographs and even if you haven't, it has plans to offer a range of up to 16TB - enough for eight million high res pictures.

    There can't be many people that will snap that much.
