    I have over 100GB of photos and I was wondering which cloud service would be best to save and back up my photos?

    For that much space you're likely going to end up paying a high monthly bill. I think you'd be better off signing up with a web hosting company and using a photo gallery package to manage photos. I've set up my own server, costs me $5/mo, and use the Coppermine web app available from my web hosting company. This setup works great, I use it to host my own photo gallery, blog, wiki and forum. One of the advantages of a web hosting company is that you can find a good company that offers unlimited storage and bandwidth.

    Do you need them to be viewable on this service, or do you just want backup? If you just want backup, an online backup service something like Crashplan would be best IMO.

    You can use flickr since they give 1 TB for free. The privacy would be questionable though.

    You can do your own photo cloud with a Synology NAS.

    If you are just wanting a place to backup, you can get a account and then use to have someone get you an additional 500GB of storage through referrals. I'm honestly not sure how they do it, but I paid $10, and had a full TB of additional storage added to my account in under 24 hours.

    And since it is through referrals, it should stay a full TB forever without monthly or yearly fees.
