Dropbox is the most popular cloud storage service. A lot of people currently use Dropbox, which makes file sharing a lot easier if others already use it. Make sure you protect your cloud storage through the method of encryption! If you upload all of your personal files onto the cloud, while extremely convenient and efficient, they still face the risk of being hacked. A lot of services today can protect your cloud storage. One of my personal favorites is nCrypted Cloud. nCrypted Cloud acts as a layer on top of Dropbox and gives you many options that allow you to securely share, trusted share, make files private, and audit all activity within your cloud. nCrypted Cloud follows the same encryption standards at banks so you know your privacy and security is fully protected! Hope this helps!

Glad that your looking at backup for personal photos, in my case its more videos of my grand daughter. These are irreplaceable so yes backup or lets call it disaster recovery has to be robust.
So I have copies on 2 systems at home, my pc and my nas - where there are 2 copies on the nas on different physical drives as well
I then backup these files to my webhost, since they are private "backups" I have 50GB of space for this use - if was going to make them accessable via website then it would be unlimited. I am at the point where I will either have to pay for space or move them to normal website storage.
I then also make copies to optical that have a copy of and also copy at my son's house - worse case if fire at my house or tornado took it to oz, son's copy should still be there and online copy.
I also have another copy in lower quality on website used to stream these video's to family members.
You can never have too many copies(backups) of such files.. You may want to look into multiple storage locations online if your not going to do optical or hdd copy in multiple locations on your own. flickr might be fine for photo's but video storage seemed to be a pain - I might look at it again.

Google Drive has a great interface for organizing, viewing, and searching your photos. Plus, it's really easy to share your photos securely between many people with differing levels of access using your Google Plus Circles. Google Drive also can be integrated with File Explorer on Windows, just like SkyDrive.
