This is the message I got trying to upload photo's a few days ago...
Whoops! You're out of space. You are using 100% of your 1 GB quota for photos.Purchase more storage
Photos are stored in your Picasa Web Albums account and are included in your 1 GB free quota for photos. Additional storage you purchase is shared between Gmail, Picasa Web Albums, and Google Docs, and is in addition to your free quota.Learn more
I tried everything to upload photos without using Google Picasa albums. To no avail. I'm sure there is a free way out there, but not for me.
You know me I thrift whenever I can, so I justified the $5.00 spend for more space by thinking of all the money I have saved elsewhere. It really wasn't the five bucks, it was the being backed into a corner with no other way, that gripes me.
I had used 1GB of Picasa storage. Five bucks gives me 20GB more for one year. Sounds like a deal, but a forced deal.
So if you get the above message, save yourself some time and PURCHASE more storage. Google stock will be going up soon. Purchase some of that too!
Now I have to wait 24 hours for them to load the new storage to my account! Figures, Google computer systems must be slow.
UUUGGGGHHHH is now over.
