Photo storage service Everpix shutting down

Photo storage service Everpix shutting down

Image storage service Everpix will be shutting down over the coming weeks. Everpix uploaded your photos and intelligently sorted them, organizing them by day and event. The team was unable to secure new funding, and was also unable to find a new home for the service, according to a post on their blog:

It’s frustrating (to say the least) that we cannot continue to work on Everpix. We were unable to secure sufficient funding in order to properly scale the business, and our endeavors to find a new home for Everpix did not come to pass. At this point, we have no other options but to discontinue the service.

Everpix will become read-only from now on. This means that photos won't sync to the service, external service syncing is disabled, and so is editing and photo deletion. Everpix will formally shut down on December 15, 2013. Until then, you can browse, download specific photos, and download your collection archive. The team is currently working on getting people their photos. Additionally, Everpix will refund the subscriptions of all of their paying customers.

Photo storage service Everpix shutting down

This is such a shame. This was a great site for re-discovering your old photos and memories. I have yet to find anything else that comes close. Hopefully someone will take on the baton and develop the idea into a viable business model.

At this time, I am stunned, shocked and sad.
Everpix is one of the best services I've used, period.
I am trying to find something better, if there is, for the same amount of money
As a quickfix, I am trying out thislife.com

Seemed like a great service. Was considering paying the monthly fee to store pictures. News like this can make one hesitant to upload pictures to just one service.

Sent from the iMore App

I feel the same way. Unexpectedly sad & bummed out. I loved this service. I'm trying loom, but memoir sounds like it might interesting. I really enjoyed Everpix's emails with the old photos from that day's date. I sent them around to everyone.

I will miss this service. I really liked it and hate to see it go away. They have photo management down. Too bad they are closing shop.

Yea... I got the email today that they were closing down shop. I was never a huge fan of the service but it was the one that i felt met all of my needs. I just upgraded my dropbox account to pro, finally. I think im just gonna start editing through Lightroom then exporting to Dropbox

I was really saddened to get the email today. I have been trying out a bunch of photo storage options and Everpix was one of my top choices. The only thing holding me back completely was the worry of how long it would be around.

My main choice so far has been Adobe Revel. It's got the backing of Adobe behind it, so I feel a bit confident that it will be around for a while, and it gives you 30 days of unlimited uploads to start, then just $5.99/mo to continue unlimited uploads (or remember free and get 50 uploads per month). For a casual user like me it seems like the best options, as I don't need to commit to any yearly plan or pay a lot of money. I could pay $5.99 every few months and do all of my uploading during that time, then go back to free until I build up a collection of new photos.

I'm also using Flickr as a second place to store my photos since they give you 1TB of space for free. Flickr won't be going anywhere anytime soon, so I feel safe knowing my pictures will be there. I'll also keep my own copies, but it's nice to know I have two backup locations incase anything ever happens to my hard drives. And it means I have two ways to view my photos remotely, which saves me space on all my devices.

Some similar services I've found are: PictureLife, MyShoeBox, Stream Nation, Copy, Box, Loom, Dropbox
