Photo storage sites

From the Feb. 1 Wall Street Journal:
"The Downside of Photo-Storage Sites"
The site that offers free, unlimited storage of your photos may have strings attached. Some people have learned, the hard way, that "unlimited" is not "forever".
One person found this out the hard way. His account was closed and photos deleted after he failed to buy prints for over a year.
A list of the rules for some of the most popular storage sites:
