Picturelife, Now With In-App Photo Editing Tools


Users of Picturelife on iOS can now edit their cloud-stored photos right there in the app, thanks to an update launched yesterday. Picturelife was already one of the most full-featured photo-wrangling services around (it’s my favorite, although I have a bit of a dupe problem at the moment), and now it can serve as a full-on organizing, editing and sharing suite.

The editing features look like they use the Aviary plugin to get the job done, which is alright by me as I love the features and the UI of both the add-in and the native Aviary app. What’s not alright by me is the fact that the app downsizes the photo before downloading it from cloud storage for editing. This seems silly. Sure, I mightn’t want to kill my bandwidth, but how many photos are we talking about here?

The rest of the service continues in its full-featured-yet-slightly-confusing direction, like your awesome ex-adventurer uncle who’s started to lose his marbles but still has the best collection of Leatherman multitools you’ve ever seen. The universal app is free, and the service comes in various tiers, including 5GB free storage.
