Photo Center Storage Policy

Walmart's Digital Photo Center offers free, unlimited storage of your online photos, whether they come from film you develop with us or from digital photos you upload to your Photo Center account.

Your photos will remain in your Digital Photo Center online account for as long as you remain an active member of the service.

Active participation in the service is defined as sending in film for developing or purchasing photo merchandise (prints, posters, Photo Books, Photo CDs or hi-res downloads) through the website at least once every year (365 calendar days).

We do not store all uploaded photos at their original resolution. When you upload very high-resolution photos, we will keep the original resolution for 90 days. After that we will reduce the resolution; these photos will still be able to produce high quality prints up to 8 x 10; For posters or other large prints, you may want to upload the pictures again.

Note to digital camera users: We recommend keeping a backup copy of all photos you upload to Walmart's Digital Photo Center on your own computer. That way, you will always have a backup of your photos.

Pixel sizes for online photos produced from film developing: The sizes below apply only to film developed at Walmart that we put into your account. They do not apply to digital photos you upload to your account.

  • Hi-res photos: 1612 x 1024 pixels
  • Low-res photos: 900 x 600 pixels
  • Screen resolution photos (the large size photos you view in your account): 420 x 280 pixels
  • Thumbnail resolution photos (the very small photos you see in full album view): 96 x 64 pixels
