Photos take a lot of disk space and bandwidth, not all of us have that available on a web server.
If Gallery supported integrating with Amazon's S3 via a plugin that used a storage API, gallery users would have unlimited storage (at a price).
They would be stored on amazon's servers, and optionally served off of them, or (optionally) off the server, using a user configurable cache size.
The end result would be tons of storage and bandwidth regardless of what your server has. No need to worry about some growth.
Amazon's S3 is also redundant, so your photos are likely safer than if you hosted them yourself.
