I assume you’re referring to your Picasa Web Albums?

I don’t think anything is wrong … 

You must have joined Google Plus … with that, any picture under 2048 pixels doesn’t count on your storage limits.  Since you upload at 1600 pixels, none of your uploads counts.  So, you have 106GB available and you haven’t used any of it.

You probably purchased the extra storage before joining Google Plus.  If you’re happy with uploading at 1600 pixels, you have unlimited storage with a Google Plus membership.

Ian,

Well … you can have unlimited storage without paying, but only IF you have joined Google Plus.  I still think that your account must have Google+ enabled, even if you didn’t realize it.  Can you give me a link to your Picasa Web Albums?

Do you have a reason why you don’t want Google+?  If not, it’s a great way to get unlimited storage for your pictures.

Many thanks for your answer.

Here is the public or do you need the my private one?

 re google+

because I gather I don’t have the option of public and private web pages like the present picasa as I belong to a birding group and I post the trip pictures on the public page and keep my private pictures in the other two sections rgds Ian

Ian,

It does indeed appear that you have not joined Google+.  Here are the storage limits for Picasa Web Albums.  They also allow for free storage of pictures 800X800 or less.  Your pictures are larger than that.

You can double check your storage limits here: https://picasaweb.google.com/l…..gs#storage

Bottom line, I don’t understand how you are storing >20GB without paying for it.

I think you’d be fine joining Google+ – yes, you do have the option of making albums private … just don’t share with anyone.  Here is an article I wrote about Picasa Web Albums vs. Google Plus

btw – your photos are gorgeous!! Also, I’m wondering if you know our friend Tom Pernal who takes similar pictures in the Barnegat area.  See some of his photos on his Google+ albums
