Super Secure

We use the same encrypted SSL security technology that banks use for their websites – and with Amazon S3 on the backend of things, everything is stored redundantly so you’ll never have to worry about losing any data.

Video Support

Don't worry about file size or resolution. Picturelife backs up all your videos including anything you shoot in 1080p HD or other hi-res formats.

RAW File Support

Picturelife displays most image formats—including JPG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, PSD, and even RAW. So keep capturing the moment, any way you like.

iPhoto and Aperture

Sync albums and ratings, as well as changes you make to your iPhoto or Aperture library. This way, you can use the programs you like best - and still be safely synced in the cloud.

All in one place

Forget hard drives - on your desk or in the cloud. Picturelife syncs the pictures on your desktop and your phone so you have a smart home for photos.


Sometimes you want to share pictures. Just not with everyone. Now you can share easily and privately. Plus, Picturelife Share auto-fills recent addresses so it’s lightning fast.

Frequently asked questions

Here's an introduction to how Picturelife works. For more specific help, check out our Support site

What is Picturelife?

Picturelife is a photo and gallery app that beautifully organizes your favorite memories from your camera roll. When you create your free Picturelife account, you can also upload those memories to Picturelife cloud storage for safekeeping.

After you've uploaded, your memories will be privately available to you - to view, reminisce, beautify, and share - any time you login to your account.

How does Picturelife work?

Picturelife is the smart home for all of your photos and videos. We safely and securely store your favorite memories in one private library - and make it easy to organize, reminisce over, and share photos any time you have internet access. Here's an introduction to how Picturelife works.

  • Sign up for free to get started.
  • Upload and import all your photos and videos to one secure location - from your Mac or PC, iOS and Android device, and from your favorite social media networks. With Picturelife, you can store and view all your photos and videos from one place - finally!
  • Pictures in your pocket - or on your computer, or from your couch, or on the train, or... you get the idea. With our selection of mobile, web, and desktop apps, you can view, organize, and share your entire Picturelife library - from anywhere you have access to the internet.
  • Your photos are your photos. They belong to you - which means that, by default, anything you upload to your Picturelife library is completely private.
  • Wow, great photo! You should send that to your friends! Luckily, we've got you covered, offering several ways to privately or publicly share your favorite pics.

Can other people see my pictures and videos in Picturelife?

Nope! Your photos belong to you - this means they're private. The only way anyone else can see your uploaded photos or videos is if you choose to share your Picturelife photos or videos with that person.

Why should I create a Picturelife account?

First, we give you 8GB of secure storage - completely free, just for creating an account! That means you can upload and securely store thousands of your favorite pictures and videos.

The best part is, they'll be available to you, privately, any time you login to Picturelife - even from your desktop or laptop computer at

Can I share my pictures with someone who doesn’t have Picturelife?

Absolutely! You can share photos through email, text message, or via URL. You can also post your favorite photos and albums directly from Picturelife to your favorite social networks!

Will Picturelife work on my device?

Picturelife works with the following Apple, Android, Mac, and Windows devices:

  • All iOS7+ and Android 4.0+ compatible devices
  • Mac OS X 10.7 and later
  • Windows Vista, XP, 7, and 8
  • Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Internet Explorer 10 & 11 web browsers

What video and picture formats can I upload to Picturelife?

Chances are, if it exists, we support it.*

Picturelife supports a variety of photo and video formats - yes, including RAW! We support all of the standard photo formats, such as JPG, JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and PSD; and a ton of RAW formats - click here to find a complete list of supported RAW formats.

We also work with video - generally, Picturelife supports the following video format extensions:

.3gp, .avi, .divx, .flv, .m4v, .mkv, .mpeg, .mp4, .mpg, .mpeg, .mov, .mts, .ogm, .wmv, and .ts.

*Please note that proprietary video codecs may not work.

Can I get my pictures and videos back from Picturelife?

Yes, of course - you can download the original and edited versions of your Picturelife photos and videos at any time, from within the app or via your personal library archives page.

If I delete a photo from my computer / mobile device, will it also be deleted in Picturelife?

Before you delete anything from your device, sign in to the website to make sure those photos are visible on the website. Once you've confirmed that the photos have successfully uploaded to Picturelife, deleting photos from your computer or mobile device storage will not delete them from your Picturelife library. The only way to remove an uploaded photo or video from Picturelife is to manually delete them from within your account.

Along the same lines, deleting a photo from your Picturelife library will not delete it from your computer or mobile device storage.

Will Picturelife sync my photos back to my computer automatically?

No - Picturelife does not provide syncing services between computers, or from Picturelife back to a computer. Picturelife also does not provide two-way sync between Aperture or iPhoto libraries.
