Picturelife Will Import Your Entire Everpix Archive — Free

Screen Shot 2013-11-14 at 09.14.24

Everpix’s servers are probably going to hate this, but users will love it. Picturelife (my favorite of the Everpix alternatives I tested, has made an Everpix-to-Picturelife importer. If you received a link to your Everpix archive, you can just plug it in to the importer and walk away.

Best of all, the entire archive won’t count towards your storage quota. And the Picturelife team managed to put this all together in less than 24 hours.

How To Get All Of Your Photos Into Flickr And Forget Everpix Forever [How To]

Flickr can become the central home for all your photos.

Flickr can become the central home for all your photos.

Intro

After the recent Everpix shutdown, I moved all my photos to Flickr. If you read my roundup of Everpix alternatives, you’ll know that Flickr wasn’t my first choice, but it turns out that neither is it my only choice. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

Everpix was great because it just sucked in all your photos, whether you kept them in iPhoto, on your iPhone, in a weird beardo folder structure on your Mac, or even if you took all of your photos using Instagram. It was far from perfect, but it was the best. And then it went away.

Recreate Everpix’s Flashback With Automator, Dropbox and iCal

flashback

It seems like people really miss Everpix’s great Flashback feature. I have spent far too many hours over the past few days trying to find a way to replace it, but Thomas Verschoren went one better, and rolled his own Flashback. It relies on your photos being stored in Dropbox, and requires you to set an Automator action to run automatically every day using iCal, but it’s pretty simple as Thomas provides all the pieces for you.

Everpix users can now achieve some emotional closure to help with the stress caused by the shutdown of everyone’s favorite online photo-wrangling service. You’ll be getting an e-mail soon (or already) with a link to let you get a raw (but not RAW) dump of your stored images.

ThisLife, An Everpix Alternative With Face-Recognition And Shared Accounts

Also available on the iPhone and iPad.

Also available on the iPhone and iPad.

ThisLife is a new(ly resurrected) online photo-storage service from Shutterfly, the photo-book-printing people. It’s similar to other services like Picturelife and the now-dead Everpix, letting you pull in your photos from other popular photo sites like Flickr and Instagram. But it comes with one unique feature: face recognition.

Everpix Has Gone: What The Hell Can We Use To Replace It?

Everpix. Goodbye.

Everpix. Goodbye.

When Everpix announced its shutdown this week, the Internet Sadness Factor spun the dial up to its highest point since the original demise of Del.icio.us, and the euthanization of Loren Brichter’s Tweetie for iPad. I was a lover of the service, and now I, like you, am searching for an alternative.

The good news is that there are plenty of services trying to solve the same problem as Everpix: how to organize your overwhelming mountain of digital photos. The bad news is that none of them is as easy to use as Everpix.

If you want a great head-to-head comparison of the alternatives, take a look at The Verge’s article from the end of August. This article won’t be a feature-for-feature rundown. Instead I’m going to look at some of the good and bad points of the remaining competition. Hopefully I can help you to find something you’ll like.

Photojojo’s PhotoTimeCapsule Fills An Everpix-Flashback-Shaped Gap

Last year I was checking out the then-new iPad mini.

Last year I was checking out the then-new iPad mini.

Everpix was euthanized yesterday, and is currently in read-only mode until the developers can figure out how to let users download their archives. Everpix, for those who don’t know, was an amazing service that slurped up all of your photos from your iPhone, your Flickr, your Instagram, your Gmail (!) and more, and put them all in one place. It removed duplicates, send you a daily mail showing you pictures from the same day in the past, and was generally the best solution to the problem of digital photo overload.

I’m working on a piece about alternatives (I have been using a few other services along with Everpix for the last few months), but until then I thought I’d remind you about Photojojo’s PhotoTimeCapsule, a semi-replacement for the Everpix Flashback.

Everpix Revamps UI, Adds New “Nearby Photos” Section

evernew

Everpix – in case my constant droning on and on about it wasn’t clear enough – is my favorite cloud photo service by far (I’m currently auditioning Picturelife as a possible alternative, but so far it’s not close). Now the web app has been updated to make it even easier to use. So easy and fast, in fact, that you could use it to replace iPhoto on your Mac.
