Kodak Gallery to Users: Buy Something or We'll Delete Your Pictures

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and I will admit that sometimes showing a person a picture is far more efficient that explaining it to him, but according to Kodak a picture’s worth is not valued in words, but in hard, cold cash. Kodak Gallery is an online service that allows you to upload and share pictures (much in the same way Flickr users do) and it is very popular especially amongst people who purchased Kodak digital cameras.

“Kodak Gallery www.kodakgallery.com, formerly known as "Ofoto", is the leading online digital photo developing service. The Kodakgallery.com site provides consumers with a secure and easy way to view, store and share their photos with friends and family and get real Kodak prints of their pictures. The site also provides free editing and creative tools and specialty photo products”, explains Kodak Gallery .

The whole thing would go like this: you would purchase a Kodak digital camera which comes with Kodak Easyshare software, set up an account with Kodak Gallery and seamlessly upload pictures to your account thanks to Kodak Easyshare. The Kodak Gallery would became the place to store and share your images – for free.

Kodak has now modified the “ Terms of Service ” so that they state the following: you will only get free storage for the first 90 days from the time you upload your first image. Within 90 days you have to make a purchase if you want to keep having “free storage”. You must also make a purchase every 12 months from there on; you are not limited to what you can buy, just what amount to spend. A member with up to 2GB of uploaded data must make a purchase of at least $4.99; a member with more than 2GB of uploaded data must purchase merchandise of at least $19.99.

“If you do not purchase the required amount as set forth above from us for a period of 12 months, we may delete the images stored in your account. You should keep a copy of each image you upload in a secure place. We are not responsible for deleted images. Members may access information regarding its storage amount and minimum purchase anniversary date on the “My Account” page. The following are excluded from the annual minimum purchase amount: Purchases made through a third party provider (e.g., PhotoStamps) where a member does not purchase such product or service through the Kodak Imaging Network cart,” explains Kodak.
