Photographer, crying.
Two tweets that read: Google Photos – Starting June 1, 2021, new photos and videos uploaded in High Quality will begin counting towards your 15GB of Google Account Storage. Andrew Kennedy - Not suprising, bit storage per capita is growing faster than HD costs can keep up. I also don't really trust Google with photo storage. I'd much rather pay a reasonable fee to someone like SmugMug who has shown good stewardship over photos for the long haul.

Your photos look better here.

Has Google Photos got you worried about storage limits, image compression, and photo security? Say goodbye to Google and hello to unlimited, full-resolution storage, detailed privacy controls, and uncompromising dedication to making your photos look their best.

What do we have that they don’t?

Unlimited storage, automatically.

With SmugMug, you get truly unlimited storage with every plan—plus handy features like auto uploading from our mobile and desktop apps—for less than what the other guys are charging.

Absolute privacy.

SmugMug will never mine, sell, or share your data. Your photos are yours and yours alone, and you control who gets to see what with incredible privacy settings.

Full resolution access.

You will always have access to your full resolution photos, no matter what. We don’t alter or downsize your photos to save on space when you upload them.

Easy organization.

Build folders and galleries just the way you like them with our Organizer. This will help you share and find just the right photo when you need it.

Gorgeous galleries.

Want to show off your photos as well as store them securely? Our sharing tools let you create galleries, web pages, or a whole custom website for your photography.

The home your photos deserve.




Never lose a memory or a pixel. Each photo tells a story, your story, and you'll never have to choose which to keep.
