Hi, I use Google Drive and I have uploaded over 10GB of Pictures. Of what I have read you get too store your photos for free so they don't take up any of your storage but mines are?

Anyone know anything to help me out on this situation?

Thanks,
Fraser

Google is specific about what counts. Here's the quote "Google+ Photos: Only photos over 2048x2048 pixels and videos longer than 15 minutes count toward your storage limit."

So, the pictures must be Google+ photos, and they must be lower than 2048x2048.
It would seem you aren't qualifying for the free storage for 1 or even both of those reasons.

Here's the complete writeup about google drive storage from google itself.
