Everpix Gathers All of Your Photos into One Place in the Cloud

Everpix is a new company that wants to make your entire photo collection — both online and offline — accessible from anywhere through the cloud. Introduced yesterday at the TechCrunch Disrupt 2011 conference, the service will come as a desktop client that monitors folders on your computer and photo sharing accounts on the Internet. Whenever you add new photographs, they’re automatically beamed to the cloud (i.e. Everpix servers), allowing images created using many different devices and stored in many different places to be available in one central location. Even photos emailed to your through Gmail can be picked up and back up by the service.

Once on Everpix servers, the photos are automatically grouped into collections called “Moments”. These are private by default, but can be made public and shared with just one click.

Here’s a video of the presentation the founders made at TechCrunch Disrupt:

No word on when the service will fully launch to the public, but this could be an attractive solution for people who want a “set it and forget” approach to backing up photos.
