Dropbox, the popular cloud-storage service, usually offers 2GB of storage for free, and if you want more you have to pay or do some tricky things like linking GMail accounts. Well, if you're short of cash and don't feel like making tons of GMail accounts, Dropbox is offering a total of 5GB extra space if you help them test out their new automatic photo uploading feature. If you download and install the beta, the first photo you upload will grant you 500MB of extra storage space. After that, every 500MB of photo and videos you upload will give you 500MB of extra space until you reach 4.5GB. Adding the original 500MB, you'll get your extra 5GB for just uploading 5GB of pictures and videos. After that you can delete all of what you uploaded and use the 5GB for whatever you would like to use it for. You can read the forum post about the beta as well as download the beta build for Windows, OS X (Mac), and Linux here
