This Life: My Life, Your Life – Photo Awesome!

By August 29, 2011Tech

Do you have your photo memories stored in a dozen places? I do. I take pictures with my phone and with my camera and I ask people to send me pictures all the time! They are stored on my computer, in my phone, on Facebook or one of many other social media sites. They are in boxes on shelves…and they are not organized. Those memories are precious and yet they are not being treated as a priority. Well, at least they weren’t until I found ThisLife!

This Life

As soon as I set up my account ThisLife began to sync my social media photos with my ThisLife “Cloud” and I was ecstatic to see pictures I had almost forgotten about.  One of my favorites was taken in the middle of the night with my phone and uploaded to Facebook.  I tool the kids on a road trip and in a road-side hotel Violet refused to sleep but was adorable pretending to slumber.  I am so glad to have this pic with all my others.

ThisLife pulls all of your photos, called Moments, through imports from social services like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, Picassa, Shutterfly and Smugmug. You can also submit Moments via email, or upload them from your desktop.  Oh, and it’s not just photos…videos and messages, it’s got you covered there too!

Import New Moments

Once ThisLife has your photos it not only saves and protects them (no more worries that you will lose anything in a computer meltdown) but it also enhances and organizes your moments in a chronological timeline. Here is part of mine from 2008.  It’s easy to scroll through, re-arrange and view individual photos.  You can sort or search your timeline by date, location, or even a specific person.  I will say that with all the babies around here I have to label a lot of pictures myself since babies faces change so much as they grow.  I have found it fun and totally entertaining to see if I can guess which baby is which just by face at weeks old.  I am pretty good but even I have made mistakes!

ThisLife Timeline

Once all your photos are coming into your cloud and syncing with all of your accounts and devices, you can invite friends and family to share your timeline and even contribute.  You can also share right back to your social networks, easy peasy!

I am having a ton of fun playing around with my Cloud and all of the photos I totally forgot about and I am hoping to scan some of my ancestral family photos to add to my timeline.  Fun!
