How many Photos and Videos can 1 TB hold?

This is a question that comes up often and the answer is: It really depends on the quality of the images. This is the reason we built an easy to use calculator.


  • Size of the storage medium. The default value is 1 Terabyte although any value can be entered
  • File size (in kB, MB or GB) of pictures and videos




The size of a photo depends on the image size in pixels and image quality. The picture below from Canon shows how image size varies.

The highest quality image has a size of 37.8 MB. In this case, using the calculator 26,455 pictures can be stored on a 1 TB drive.

1 Terabyte = 1*1012 Bytes = 8*1012 Bits
