How to freely and properly store your photos in Google Drive

It has been quite a time since Google allowed us to store our photos in Google Photos for free. They recently increased the size of the photos that can be stored for free to 16 Mega Pixels. When they announced that, I decided to back up all my photos to Google Photos.

The best thing about uploading photos to Google Photos is that you actually get two ways to manage your photos; and I really like that. When you upload photos to Google Photos, you can add those uploaded photos in to “Albums” — In which you can store up to 2,000 photos.

What is PayPal?

PayPal is the most popular money transferring service used online. Although it is a service provided by a private company, it is considered the de facto standard of online money transfers.

PayPal is very useful for internet users to pay online for the goods and services they purchase through internet, and get paid for goods and service they sell online.

Although it is necessary to sign up for a PayPal account in order to receive money through PayPal, one doesn’t need a PayPal account to make payments to someone’s’ PayPal accounts.
