Source: Shutterfly To Acquire Slick Photo Sharing And Storage Startup ThisLife

We’ve heard a rumor that Shutterfly, the photo and personal publishing company founded in 1999, is set to acquire online photo sharing and storage startup ThisLife. Earlier this year, the company announced the acquisition of bankrupt-ridden Kodak’s online photo-sharing platform for $23.8 million. While there is no shortage of cloud-based photo storage apps (including Shutterfly), ThisLife’s interface is pretty slick compared to some of the dinosaurs in the space. Shutterfly picked up online stationery company Tiny Prints; bought Nexco, which became Shutterfly share sites (private photo-sharing networks); and acquired Photoccino, which had developed 29 algorithms for sorting through photos. Shutterfly may be interested in the the company’s algorithm, and engineering and product talent.

ThisLife Launches Beautiful Online Photo Storage And Sharing Service, Uses Amazon Glacier To Keep Prices Very Low

ThisLife announced the launch of its online photo storage, management, and sharing service at Amazon re: Invent last week. It’s also one of the first startups to use Amazon’s new Glacier data-archiving service in production, something that helps the company keep its prices down. In addition, they decided to ensure that the service can help its users organize their photos without too much hassle. Once uploaded, the service displays your images on a beautiful timeline that scrolls horizontally. A full account, the so-called Super Box, costs $6 per month and also lets you store up to 25,000 photos or 100GB.

Backed by $2.75 Million, ThisLife Aims to Organize Your Photo History

Backed by $2.75 Million, ThisLife Aims to Organize Your Photo HistoryI’m not a parent. Oh, and obviously, there’s a built-in sharing function to send uploaded photos from ThisLife back out to your disparate apps, if you’re so inclined. The idea is, you’d be better off with all those photos in one place — in the cloud (of course). )Andrea and Matt Johnson, however, are parents, and they assure me that it’s crazy-making to organize the number of pictures they’ve taken of their child. And the app’s ever-learning facial-recognition algorithm uses your already-tagged Facebook photos to discern who exactly is in each photo.

ThisLife - Video and Photo Organization

Starter Plan (1,000 pictures or one hour of video), free; Adventure Plan (20,000 photos or ten hours of video), $8 monthly or $80 yearly; Family Plan (50,000 photos or 25 hours of video), $15 monthly or $150 yearly. As if that weren’t enough, the founders of ThisLife are parents who recognize that pictures are only as good as the stories they tell. Best part: ThisLife allows two people to connect with each account — so you don’t have to chase down your partner to send you pictures. You’ve got a Flip with video of your daughter’s first steps (somewhere), 998 photos on your iPhone, and your husband just emailed pics of the kids playing in the yard. Photo: Courtesy of ThisLife
