We are dusting off those old JPEGs and building new ways to for you to explore your pictures.
The first new feature is called “Memories”. Log into www.everpix.com or go to Explore in the new iOS app and you’ll be greeted with a retrospective of all the photos you’ve taken today in history. Like Highlights, you can jump into each photo’s respected Moment and see all the other photos taken that day. This feature is especially great for holidays and annual events—photos of past birthday parties or the family vacation from last year, the year before that, and the year before that… well, you get the idea.
Our other new feature is a weekly or daily email showcasing photos from a moment in the past, algorithmically selected from your collection in Everpix. We think you’ll find that these emails delightful and perhaps rediscover photos that you’ve forgotten about. You can choose how often you’d like to receive these emails from the Preferences panel on the website.
Visit the website, watch your email, and get the iOS app to rediscover your photo collection! And as always, we’ve got a lot more on the way—stay tuned!
• [NEW] Memories
• Lots of small bug fixes
• New icon gradient
• Small UI tweaks
We started Everpix nearly two years ago with the goal of building a smarter photo platform. Since then, we’ve worked diligently to lay down the foundation—optimizing a quick syncing pipeline, designing a great user experience, scaling our infrastructure, and most importantly, developing the science. Now’s the time to bring Everpix to more folks.
We are super excited to announce Everpix Free, a limited version of Everpix you can use for free for as long as you wish. Everpix Free syncs all your photos in full-resolution to our cloud, but only the photos from the past 12 months get processed by our cutting-edge Image Analysis and appear in Everpix views. This means ALL the photos you took within the last year are always accessible on Everpix Free, not just the last 1,000 shots or a couple gigabytes. Those memories are with you, anytime, anywhere.
If you think Everpix is the best thing since sliced bread, you can subscribe to have all your photos processed and displayed in Everpix views for just $49 a year or $4.99 a month. Learn more about the differences between Everpix Free and Everpix subscriptions here.
The good news keeps on coming… Read on to meet a new feature.
Photos are about memories, and understanding photos is key to exploration beyond standards like timestamps and GPS. Using semantic data gathered via Everpix image analysis, you can now explore your collection by content—think food, people, cities, nature, and, obviously, animals! As we roll this system out, we’ll continue to incorporate additional concepts (e.g. babies? flowers?). Stay tuned on that front.
Explore is still in its infancy so please help make Everpix smarter by giving us feedback on photos that aren’t quite accurate in our analysis (feedback on iOS for now, coming very soon to web)—we’ll use the data to refine our algorithm.
If you are an existing subscriber, we love you, you will be grandpa’d in with your current subscription price when you renew.
Important note for Everpix users who were on the former Everpix 30 day Trial Plan:
We are happy to announce that the iOS 1.4.4 app update adds photo printing with Walgreens.
You can easily order prints from the Everpix app by tapping on the Share icon and selecting your local Walgreens. That’s it, you will get an email when your photos are ready for pick up. For more details, please see our knowledge base article.
Everpix prints are available in 4”x6” for $0.29 per print, 5”x7” for $1.99 and 8”x10”. Through March 31, 2013, users can get 25% off with the coupon code PARTNER25.
It has become easier and easier to take pictures of everything, but technology to manage them has not progressed much. Photographs capture precious memories and emotions, yet a computer stores them as files and bits. Effectively, we, the users, are the only ones for whom these images still have a meaning. Maybe not for long: as photos accumulate by the hundreds, or thousands, on our phones, memory cards, hard drives or social networks, the cost of collecting, organizing, and managing them becomes so high that we also lose touch with these captured memories. Our memories could, ultimately, end up forgotten on some computer memory.
How did we get there? Isn’t it paradoxical that the more we capture, possibly not much more, in the end, we end up being able to recollect? Has quantity defeated quality? Shouldn’t computers be able to help? It seems to always be the time for a brand new camera; yet a convenient photo solution has yet to come.
Today we’re launching Everpix for Windows, extending the joy of Everpix to more users. The same technology that has enabled our Mac users to seamlessly sync millions of photos to the cloud is now available to anyone on Windows, from XP to Windows 8.
Sign in or sign up to download the app.
We’ve also upgraded some key features including our web app so that it supports Mobile Safari and Chrome for Android. That way, Everpix goes where you do.
All year, we’ve been experimenting and iterating to ensure our apps are high performing, rock solid, and fun to use. Our team has grown larger (and wiser), and we’re forging ahead to optimize Everpix on all platforms—the web, Mac, iOS, Android, and now Windows too.
Ready take the chore of photo management off your list? Give Everpix a go! Sign up for a free 30-day trial at www.everpix.com. If you like what you see, subscribe for only $5 a month or get a 33% discount by purchasing an annual subscription for $40.
The Everpix Team
The newest version of the Everpix iOS app is now in the App Store! This upgraded version is universal, so it works with both iPhones and iPads.
We also added location-based syncing. You can now set GPS locations that allow Everpix to automatically sync your photos in the background while you find better things to do.
Say goodbye to the Everpix HD app as it heads into retirement, and grab the free, new Everpix 1.4 from the App Store today.
One of the many places our photos can get lost these days is in our email accounts—friends and family regularly use email to share photos they’ve taken, and short of downloading and saving each one, there’s never been an easy way to liberate them from the inbox.
From day one, Everpix has helped you solve this problem by allowing you to connect your email account and automatically import the photos that are stuck there, just like we do with Flickr, Facebook, and the rest. Unlike those services, which use an authorization standard called OAuth, importing your photos from email requires us to know your IMAP login information and store it in our database.
Starting today, we’re rolling out a much more secure solution for email syncing. Users with Gmail and Google Apps accounts can now use the much more secure OAuth standard to connect your email account to Everpix, just like you connect your Facebook and other accounts. This means we don’t need to store your email password anymore, which greatly reduces security risk for you and for us.
Because of the greatly increased privacy and security provided to us by Gmail OAuth connections, we’ve also decided to deprecate our support for connecting email accounts via IMAP. We’ll be removing support for this feature entirely in a week or two, at which point we’ll completely and immediately wipe out all stored IMAP login information from our servers.
What this means for you:
Today, we are proud to introduce Everpix Highlights.
Highlights shows you only the photos that matter. Using our image analysis, it works to understand your photos on a content level (We’re not just talking pixels—think sunsets, friends, and kittens!). So when you choose the Highlights view, we show you the essence of your collection, delivering more magic and less noise.
This feature has been months in the making—developing image analysis, training our algorithm, designing UX, polish, polish, more polish—and it is only just the beginning. Highlights is where Everpix is headed. We believe the future of photos is smart and, with science, we can make help you make sense of your photo collections.
Learn more about Highlights on the brand new Everpix.com.
If you don’t see the Highlights view yet, you can expect to see it very soon as we roll out the feature to everyone.
