organize photosIf you use Flickr, Instagram, Facebook, and Picasa, chances are your photos are a big scattered mess. Not to mention the ton of photos you’ve probably got sitting in your harddrive as well. If you’ve been looking for one place where you can bring all of those photos together – look no further than Snapjoy.

Snapjoy makes it easy to connect all of your accounts, access all of your photos in one place, gives you a free Mac and Windows app to upload photos from your harddrive, and gives you an iOS app to keep up with all of your pics on the go. When you sign up for Snapjoy, your account comes with 5GB, but there are several ways you can increase your space by well over 100GB.

Import Your Photos Into Snapjoy

When you first sign up for a Snapjoy account, the first step is to connect the photography accounts you want to access through the site. It’s a simple process, and once you’ve granted access, you can close the window and Snapjoy will import all of your photos. Depending on how many photos you’ve uploaded to your accounts it could take a while, but you’ll receive an email once the process is complete.

If you upload images to any of these services after connecting them to Snapjoy, hit the ‘Add Photos‘ button under ‘Library‘, and navigate to the service, and simply hit the Refresh button.

If you want to import photos directly from your computer, download the free drag-and-drop app. Simply drag the images from your computer onto the app

View & Share Your Photos

There are several ways you can view your photos. You can view your latest import or you can view of all of your albums. Flickr, Picasa and Facebook albums or sets are imported as is, while your Instagram photos are all placed in a single album.

You can view your photos as a timeline by year.

In Timeline view you can drill down to each month, viewing photos by their specific date.

Snapjoy does more than just give you a place to access all of your photos. Each photo is accompanied by social sharing buttons, and gives viewers a way to like and comment on the photo, download the full-resolution image, and allows you as the owner of the photo to set the photo as your profile photo.

Of course when your photos are imported into Snapjoy, you’re the only one who can access them, so unless you share the image using the services inbuilt sharing feature, no one else is going to see your photos. With all photos, except those uploaded from Instagram, you can also add them to existing or new Snapjoy albums.

Get More Space

There are a bunch of different ways you can get more space to use on Snapjoy. The more accounts you connect, the more space you’ll get. You can also get a lot of extra space by inviting people to Snapjoy, by following Snapjoy on Twitter and more.

View Your Photos On The Go

Snapjoy’s free iPhone app allows you to view all of your photos, organized by date. You can view photos by year, month and day, but it doesn’t give you access to any of Snapjoy’s other features, including its sharing feature, which would no doubt come in handy on your phone.

Snapjoy also makes it easier than ever for groups to share photos among each other with the new Copy feature. When your friends share their photos with you, you can simply copy them to your Snapjoy account and view then in your timeline alongside the rest of your photos.

To find out more about how Copy works, check out Snapjoy’s video below:

    Currently waiting on dropbox integration, but otherwise very useful. I've been a member since Beta testing and found it to grow increasingly better

      Dropbox integration is always a huge plus for any service in my books.

    Cool. Just created an account. I did not see the facebook connector, but I will find it out.

      Connecting to Facebook can be done under the settings (Linked Accounts) but it only gives you sharing access from Snapjoy to FB - unfortunately there's no way to upload your Facebook photos to Snapjoy. At least not yet.

        Thanks. I saw that after connecting to FB.

        I wish they add FB sync too.

    Sounds nifty for its ability to merge online and offline collections.
    One thing though, can we manage our online photos (delete, rename, etc) and will the changes be reflected in our accounts?

      It doesn't look like it no. The only service I know of that does two-way sync like that is SocialFolders - but it doesn't allow you to rename files - you can upload/download and delete.

        That's the problem. I ran into trouble when I deleted some bad, jittery pictures and rename some which I would send to my friends, but in the online account I should did everything from scratch. Guess I'll stick with Picasa just for its syncing ability.

    This seems to be similar to the now defunct ZangZing.
