When your photos matter

During this season of memories, it’s worth remembering that dotphoto saves your photos at up to 36 megapixels (up to 6000 dots on the longest side.) Unlike our competitors, we don’t downsize our Club members’ photos to small storage sizes, so you’ll be able to zoom into group shots or print clear photos years from now.
You can also download and backup your photos on dotphoto any time you want, which is difficult or impossible on most other services. How to download

dotphoto Club, Family and Pro members get free unlimited, high-quality storage and can manage photos in an easy album structure.

How our competitors think about your photos

As of 12/18/17, Facebook’s help section notes: “To avoid compression when you upload your cover photo, make sure the file size is less than 100KB.” This is a very small file for most dotphoto photographers. Most “free” photo sites severely downsize your images after a week and a year because their business models are based on printing or advertising. They are not designed to be services that care for your photos; they are designed to maximize advertising or printing, and they understand that your old photos will produce less revenue than your new photos, so they reduce their costs by severely reducing the size of your photos.
