Will the change in storage to 2GB now require me to pay to store my current 8000+ images? The current plan of 50 photo upload a month did not cost me anything. Currently, I think Revel does not provide the same level of service I received prior with the automatic Adobe Photoshop backup that I purchased. If I am required to pay at this time, I will probably leave your service.

Hi Kevin

The free Revel accounts are now limited to 2GB. If you have more than that already stored in the free account, you will not be able to upload more files until you upgrade your account.

I'm at a loss of words - the "unlimited amount" of photos that I was promised in an email I received in the beginnings of Revel was very enticing - free photo storage at an unlimited amount, and with an unlimited upload ratio as long as you were a member - incredible. Being a photographer and a huge Adobe fan, I was in. So much as a matter of fact I must have nearly 45 GBs of photos stored here, with the guarantee that they will remain here for life as long as I visit Revel at least once every two years. Since then I have fallen away from Revels Membership, lightened up on the uploading, leaving my photos here to cool down from the data transfer. Now you are telling me your changing all of that, and will lock me out of being able to upload anything until I start paying you again? Really wish someone could make up their minds here. Hang on uploaded photos, I won't forget about you!

HI Ray-

Previously, revel offered unlimited uploads for the first 30 days, 50 uploads a month after that for free accounts, and unlimited uploads for premium accounts.

With the upcoming plan, all free users have unlimited uploads until they reach the 2 GB limit, and then they have the option to subscribe if they want unlimited uploads. All of the accounts are ad-free.
