By mon

If you desire to take pictures on your camera, and your phone doesn't have adequate space to hold lots and lots of pics, don't you worry, the Amazon Prime photo is here for you.

Besides two-day shipping on Amazon purchases, unlimited movie streaming from the Instant Video library, and entree to more than a million songs, Prime members in the U.S. are taking a new perk, the unlimited photo storage. Amazon on Tuesday declared the new Prime benefit, which lets you store as many pictures as you want in Cloud Drive for free, including original, full-resolution icons.

Prime Photos are the latest benefit of Prime, which you can store every digital image they have in any size on the Amazon Cloud Drive for no additional price. Also in Prime Photos, includes a Netflix-like television-streaming service and a lending library of more than 600,000 books from Amazon's Kindle Owners' Lending Library e-readers.

Starting today, all Prime members can store their existing photo collections, automatically upload new photos, and access them anytime, anywhere at no cost. You can upload pictures from your iOS and Android devices, Fire tablets and Fire phone, and Mac and Windows computers.

"This time of year in particular, families are capturing thousands of photos of holiday parties, folk gatherings and opening presents," Greg Greeley, vice president of Amazon Prime, said in a statement."With free unlimited photo storage, we're offering one more reason for members to use Prime every day. Prime has always allowed members to conveniently save time and save money, and now with Prime Photos they can save memories too." he added.

Unlike many of the other photo-storage services, Prime Photos won't limit the size of individual photographs. It will let customers store pictures in the Raw format that many professional photographers favor.

But the prime members, who pay $99 a year for the service, which includes two-day shipping on more than 20 million items, can avail this amazing service from Amazon.

The intelligence adds up as Amazon this week launched its Electronics Holiday Gift Guide, "a curated list of more than 500 of the top consumer electronics, gifts of the season." Amazon promised three times as many deals as last year, with 10 deals on electronics items every day.

With this amazing service, you don't need to worry, even if you have a ton of photos taking up space on your computer and phone, where to save and store up your precious and memorable photographs of your life.
