If you have Amazon Prime then you have had 5GB of online storage for a while now, whether you knew it or not.  As of yesterday that has been increased to an unlimited amount of photos and videos, as long as you follow certain guidelines.  A single photo cannot be larger than 2GB and videos can be a maximum of 20 minutes in length.  If you have files which do not meet those criteria you can still upload them but they will be kept in your original 5GB of storage, assuming you have the space for it.  There are a few other minor caveats which [H]ard|OCP lists here along with their reassurance that the service is actually everything it claims to be.

"This is not our usual subject matter, at all. But surely there are a lot of HardOCP readers that are also Amazon Prime members and a lot of us like a good deal. So is Amazon Prime's new free photo storage up to what us [H]'ers would expect. When it is too good to be true is it always too good to be true?"

A Jeff Bezos, becomes Jeff Bozos App, to allow users to add large baggy polka-dot pants, large red oversized shoes, rainbow suspenders, garish bow ties, etc. to Images of Amazon's founder and CEO, don't forget the wig, and big red nose. Just the thing to fill up all that "unlimited" storage, along with the scans of some pimple covered bottoms! Here you go NSA, feast your image recognition algorithms on this.

Just goes to show, if they can sell your Photo (ADs) for a penny (formally a buck) then they can afford to store it for you also.

Really fine print might give them permission to use the Photo as they wish, but who reads fine print that is that small.

Heck, accidentally upload ALL the Photos on your Phone. That can only turn out well.
