Picasa and Picasa Web Albums is the photo editing and sharing service. It is used to organize your photos. It offers 1GB of free storage space to all its users for storing photos and videos. If you do small changes in uploading option, then you can upload almost unlimited photos to your account. You can connect your Google+ with Picasa and remove the limitation of 1GB storage.
To enable unlimited photo storage on Picasa, you just need to change the settings when you are uploading photos.
For Non-Google+ Users:
If you are non-Google+ user, then you can upload photo resolution less than 800x800 pixels and videos under 15 minutes. If you are uploading photos larger than 800x800 pixels to Picasa Web Albums and you have reached storage limit, then Google will automatically re-size them and won't count towards your free storage limit.
For Google+ users:
If you are a Google+ user and uploading photos up to 2048x2048 pixels and videos shorter than 15 minutes, then it won't eat up your storage space. If you are using Picasa Desktop Application to upload photos to Picasa Web, then you will get tow options i.e "Original size" or "Best for Web sharing". If you select "Best for Web sharing" option, then Picasa will decide what size is best for you to upload. If you select this option, you can upload as many photos as you want.

I have a large collection of photos and videos to upload on some of my storage account and I was looking for an application that can do it all automatically, and that it did especially well. I found a definitive answer to my needs thanks to this amazing program and that it is constantly improving whith new fantastic features.
PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.
PicBackMan was an answer to many a prayer. How can I get this MASSIVE collection of photos onto a service that cripples uploading? PicBackMan. I uploaded approximately 85,000 photos in less than a month. It would have taken me close to a year to get all of those photos where they needed to go. Nothing short of brilliant.
LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer
