Well, this was nice while it lasted. Amazon is eliminating the unlimited photo storage option for Amazon Drive customers. The unlimited option was announced two years ago.

Starting Thursday, customers can pay $11.99 per year for up to 100 GB of storage or $59.99 for up to30 TB of storage. For the non-digital among us, 100GB should store up to 33,000 photos.

Prime members who want to store more than 5GB of anything other than photos would need to buy a storage plan as well.

The news was disclosed in an Amazon amzn web post, which also tells users how they can check their current storage limits, and how to change or cancel their current plan. Those who pay $99 annually to be part of Amazon Prime also get another 5GB of storage for other content, like videos or documents.

If customers let their existing paid storage subscriptions expire, they will not be able to upload more photos but can continue to view, download, and delete their content, according to the web site.
