Getting all your photos and videos in one place for 2014


    At ThisLife, we’ve got a resolution that’s easy to stick to: getting all your photos and videos in one, safe place. With thousands of photos and videos spread across PCs, tablets, phones, Facebook and Instagram, the photo mess is only getting more and more unruly. What if you could gather and organize all your photos into one account? Doing this manually would take forever, but with ThisLife you can do it in just a few minutes. 

    We make it easy to upload photos from your hard drive, smartphone, and all your social sites like Facebook and Instagram. We’ll automatically organize them by date and remove duplicates so you only see the highest resolution version of each photo.  Have more than one photo taker in your family? No problem. Our joint account feature allows you to sync photos from multiple devices and multiple social sites into one account—like a joint bank account for all your precious memories. The best part is that our facial recognition feature will go through your photos to find and tag all the most important people in your life.

    Share the joy of the season with “Stories”


    The Holidays are all about spreading joy and cheer with friends and family. One of the best gifts you can give your loved ones is to allow them to relive all the wonderful memories from the year.

    On ThisLife, you can group photos and videos together into a “Story” you can share. Add aunts and uncles as contributors so they can add their photos and videos, too. You can organize pictures by a particular event “Family Reunion 2013” or by person “Your Grandson Jake.”

    Stories are such an easy way to keep the people in your life updated. As you add new photos and videos to a Story, contributors will automatically receive email updates with the latest and greatest.

    You can easily share a link to your Story via email, Facebook or Twitter and recipients don’t need a ThisLife account to view it. Gone are the days of sending cumbersome attachments of photos and videos to friends or family – just send them your link.

    As always, Stories are private by default, keeping you in control.  You choose which Stories to make public.

    So whether you’re building a ‘Gingerbread House’ or ‘Decorating The Tree’, try building a Story to capture and share your most precious holiday memories.

    We hope you have a wonderful and memorable holiday season!

    Introducing the new ThisLife® by Shutterfly


    At Shutterfly, we’re in the business of sharing life’s joy by helping you preserve and celebrate your memories. We know you’re capturing them on your camera, phone, Instagram and Facebook. But with more photos in more places comes the challenge of managing and organizing them. Let’s say you want to find that special moment of your baby’s first steps.  Are those pics still on your camera?  Or maybe they’re on your phone?  Or on your desktop?

    Introducing ThisLife® by Shutterfly.  ThisLife is a new Shutterfly service that makes it easy for you to gather, find, and enjoy all your photos and videos. 

    ThisLife puts all your photos and videos at your fingertips—in a single place that you can access on any device. It’s 100% private and secure.

    To get started, just import your photos from anywhere (social sites, smartphones, tablets and Mac and PC computers). ThisLife instantly arranges all of your photos and videos into a simple timeline you can view by day, month and year.  You’ll see the people you love, places you’ve been and memories you’ve made. 

    We’ll pull your tags from Facebook and iPhoto, remove all duplicates and only keep the highest resolution photos.  If you’ve taken pictures with a smartphone, we also note the location.  People are of course the most important part of your pictures.  We make face tagging quick and easy with our facial recognition that even works with kids and babies.
