I checked the site statistics that Sandra counts up each night.

At the end of September 2014, there were about 1,570,000 pictures (323 gigabytes), 510 gigabytes of video, 15290 text files (mostly stories) and a total of about 835 gigabytes. There's 500,000,000 pictures altogether in Newsthumbs, increasing at about 5 million per month.
