Hope not. I imagine they just want to limit the service to encourage professional photographers to pay for additional storage. You can opt to retain the original resolutions, but then you don't get unlimited storage.

The limit is 16 megapixels for stills, which I image means no resizing for a lot of people. For video it's 1080p.

I get the feeling that even if your photos are under the limit, they might recompress them, which might cause problems in some cases. I figure it's good for the price. 16 megapixels is pretty good if I lose the originals in a house fire.
