Citing "growing demand for storage", Google has announced an update to its Google Photos storage policy, ending its free unlimited storage feature
As of now, you can upload your photos and videos in both original and high quality sizes
Media uploaded in original quality will retain the same resolution as you took them and count towards your Google Account storage.
Photos and videos uploaded in high quality are compressed to save space. Photos will be resized to 16 megapixels while videos will be resized to high-definition 1080p.
1. You will have to manage the rest of your space efficiently
This includes deleting old photos you have backed up or moving them out of your account.
Take note that any files that you have sent to the Bin will be permanently deleted after 60 days.
2. Consider other alternatives to store your photos and videos
3. Subscribe to Google One's monthly or yearly plans to increase your quota
