MediaFire for Professional Photographers and Amateur Photo-takers

1_Mediafire_logo

Being a wonderful cloud storage platform, especially for storing media, MediaFire initially gives you 12 GB of free storage space, but they offer a nice referral scheme, through which you can get up to 50 GB. This is wonderful news for those who store large collections of photos. The 200 Megabyte per file limit is, however, unpleasant, but it is sufficient for most of the photos you make. The MediaFire Pro and Business accounts, on the other hand, do not impose such limitations, and if you are a pro, you may consider choosing one of those two options for a very reasonable price.

The web interface is very user friendly and offers preliminarily created folders, one of which is dedicated to your photos.

You can easily upload your photos to the web photos folder. Actually, the online storage system gives you picture samples, already stored in your folder, in order to introduce you to the photo options available.

You can either mark your photo(s) by putting a check mark to the left of it(them), and an options bar will appear in orange in the upper part of the screen. There are options, such as Share, Download, View, Move, Copy and Move to Trash. Also, when you right click on a file, you also get a list of the available options. To open a photo, left click on it and the platform will open a preview screen.
