Picturelife is a photo backup service that lets you upload and sync photos from your PC, iPhone and iPad to the cloud. To try it out, go to their website, sign up for an account and download their client software on your PC. Once it is installed on your desktop, it pulls all the photos on your computer and uploads them to the cloud.
Uploaded photos are automatically arranged in a timeline in your account. You can organize your photos into albums, view geo-tagged photos on a map and share them online to other services. Your photos are set to private by default unlike other similar services, which is a nice feature especially for those concerned about the privacy of their content.
Picturelife doesn’t aim to replace your existing photo cloud service but rather unite them in a single place. It lets you easily import your photos scattered among different cloud services including iPhoto, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr and other services. It is also available for iPhone, which is handy if you want your photos to be instantly synced online as soon as you take them with your camera.
The service offers free storage up to 5 GB per account (around 1,700 photos). To get more storage you can subscribe to one of their plans starting from $7/month for 100 GB storage.
