This seems too good to be true. I have a need to store dozens of GBs of photos, and I can put them on GAE for free?

According to GAE's quotas page [1], free hosting of code and static files is only for the first 1GB. After that it is $0.13 per GB per month.

You'd want to store them in the blobstore (5GB free storage) [0]. Note that you are not allowed to create multiple GAE apps to stack free quotas (n apps = n * 5GB free blobstore storage) [1].
