For as far as i can remember, i’ve been a Dropbox user, Dropbox does a great job when it comes to backing up my 1Password files, syncing my articles via Byword and general file syncing, but when it comes to Photo management it doesn’t do a great job to be honest, and that’s when Picturelife comes in.

What is Picturelife? #

Picturelife is a photo backup service, that allow you to backup your photos, manage them in albums, edit them on the cloud, and share them with friend, with a perfect User Interface that make it easy to use.

Design #

Picturelife have something that Dropbox doesn’t and its the beautiful UI that make Picturelife really similar to iPhoto. I started using Picturelife long time ago, and i saved most of my pictures to it, and never looked back. What’s great about Picturelife is that you can edit / manage / share your photos using their website and their iOS app.

The iOS app look very similar to their website, which make you feel right at home when you are managing your photos on the go.

To be honest, Picturelife is the iPhoto for the web, it have a photo editing software built inside the service, you can even view Exif information for each photo, and view all your photos on a map to see where you took each picture.
