WARNING: Amazon’s “Prime Photos” Can & Will Lose Photos! I Lost 192 Yesterday.

by Anura Guruge

Do NOT use Amazon’s “Prime Photos” IF you
do NOT want randomly lose photos!

I lost 192 photos yesterday.



You have now been WARNED.



Yesterday I told you, categorically, that Amazon’s “Prime Photos” was not ready for Prime Time.

That was before I discovered that Amazon had JUST LOST 192 pictures that I had uploaded and even put into two albums.

And that is the really SCARY part.

It allowed me to create two albums using the uploaded pictures.

I, of course, checked the albums when they were created.

Had the right number of pictures and the pictures were there.

Four hours later when I was going through the albums again Amazon said that these two albums were EMPTY — no photos.

That is unacceptable.

Luckily I had not deleted my original photos on my PC.

This is SCARY.

I have stopped using Amazon “Prime Photos”.

Be Aware.

Be very AFRAID.

Stay clear.


And I am an Amazon shareholder. So, I really do want Amazon to do well. I live off my Amazon shares! So when I say don’t use it you should take notice. {SMILE}

Sorry To Say That Amazon’s “Prime Photos” Is Not Ready For Prime Time — By A Long Chalk.

by Anura Guruge


If you read this blog on a regular basis you will know that I am HUGE fan and customer of Amazon. I, in addition to also publishing most of my recent books through Amazon, happen to be a very happy Amazon shareholder. There is not a day that goes by when Amazon is not a part of my life.

Thus it genuinely grieves me to inform you that ‘Amazon Prime Photos’, at present SUCKS.

It is quite PATHETIC.

What is the main problem. It does NOT have the capacity to handle the load. Basically it is having trouble coping with the user load — especially with Amazon also coping with Black Friday/Cyber Monday traffic.

Hopefully down the road Amazon will fix this. They just need to increase capacity.

‘Amazon Prime Photos’ appears to be based on Snapfish.

Right now it is real difficult to upload photos! Not funny.

I have managed, over 2 days, with MULTIPLE retries to load 3,602 photos. It is so slow and error-prone.
