A feature of our increasingly digital world is the buildup of photos. This seems worse for parents as the tendency to take photos of our children at every opportunity results in a mountain of images scattered across multiple devices, platforms and social networks (particularly after school holidays!).
Picturelife is trying to organise all of this. By providing a central repository for your images, it aims to collect and collate all your photos and present them in a beautiful, easy-to navigate package. No more trying to remember where a particular photo is – they are all in one place. Picturelife works by letting you upload any photo you have on your, Mac, PC, iOS or Android device. It also asks you to let it connect web-based platforms like Facebook, Flickr, Instagram, and the like.
Once set up, it will import all your past images, while detecting duplicates across different platforms, so you only see one copy of each photo you’ve taken even if you’ve uploaded it to multiple services. Once your images are in the system, you can browse, search and share them at will. The images are stored at full resolution, providing a permanent backup in the cloud. Picturelife has a rich set of sharing and privacy options, allowing you to choose how you share each image. You can also set up friends and family members to have automatic access to your photos if you wish. We’ve been using Picturelife since its launch and have found it to be the best platform for storing and sharing photos that we’ve tried.
Picturelife provides 5GB of storage free (enough for about 1700 photos) and you can upgrade to 100GB (34,000 photos) for US$7 per month or 300GB (100,000 photos) for US$15 per month.
