What cloud storage options are available for photos in 2021?

You might have heard the news recently that Google Photos unlimited storage is going away and photos that you store from this point forward will count towards your total Google storage quota (which includes your Gmail and Google Drive data).

Even with that change, you probably still want to store your photos in the cloud. There are plenty of options to choose from but some are better than others.

Here are some options for you to consider for cloud storage, presented in a handy chart.
