Exclusive cloud storage for multimedia is trending. These services offer several features specifically tailored for multimedia. My personal opinion is using one of these services helps keep files well organized and enjoy multimedia better.
Flickr does offer 1TB for free for your photos (only photos!) and it’s as good as unlimited for normal usage but let’s face the truth – no one takes snaps using webcams anymore. It was a major drawback when Flickr introduced 1TB for all. It’s the smartphone era and it’s handy. Recently Flickr has introduced apps for Android and iPhone but there is no easy way to migrate your photos from other services to Flickr. Another interesting service is QVIVO which offers unlimited multimedia storage and direct download to the cloud. This service takes a social approach.

- Create collaborative albums with selected friends and family using SharedPix.
