    "I take a ton of photos. I am always looking for ways to go ahead and store my photos online. I went ahead and looked into Google Photos. The greatest way to go ahead and do that was with Google. This is across all their platforms, and you can easily access all the photos from no matter where you are at. This was perfect for what you would want to see in an online storage service."

    "Now that certain services have made linking images require a subscription, Pixpa has really become the go to for setting up a nice site just for photos. We take a lot of pictures when we go vacationing, so it's not like we're a professional studio or something, but our friends and family really love seeing them somewhere other than Facebook!"
