50% off digi.me: Collected photo fun is the #6 (of 12) reasons to love our app!

digi.me’s vision has always been that gathering all of your personal data in one place makes sense for so many reasons including privacy and control – but having all your pictures from across your social media together is a huge deal as well.

So, on the sixth day of Christmas, my true love brought to me – all my photos in one place!

Yes, as well as the many and varied benefits that having digi.me brings to your life (you have read all the blogs above, yes? Good, good!) – one that is sometimes overlooked because there are JUST SO MANY COOL THINGS TO TELL YOU ABOUT is the gift of having a complete gallery of your life that you can navigate and organise as you want.

If you’re anything like most people (and sadly, as individual as we all think we are, we do end up displaying herd qualities), then you use different networks for different reasons. Maybe the audience is niche, maybe you like to show off different sides of your personality, maybe you’re just trying to win at them all and adapting accordingly – who knows?

But we digress. So Facebook ends up being your cute and family pictures, for example, Twitter is for silly things you see, pictures of cats and random political opinions (pictures optional), while Instagram is for showing off those beautiful meals you cook once in a blue moon and those moody weather shots you took on a rain-soaked walk.

All of them are elements of you, but none are the whole – until you put them together. So now you can see all the shots you took on any given day – of anything, from anywhere – on your computer in your private digi.me library, together for the first time.

You can search by albums under the pictures tab, or by a single date or chosen date range – and you can do this all in one place.

Enjoy reliving special days, special people and moments in time you had forgotten – all with their original likes and comments to put them in context.

If you want to gather them all together for any reason, you can even export them together as a PDF or to Evernote – and they’ll still retain those all-important interactions.

Really, if you love your life enough to chronicle and share it, then you need to be backing up these pictures and giving them a new lease of life with digi.me.

With a host of cool features including flashback and Collections, we know you’ll love our app – and digi.me is 50% off for the whole of December, so what are you waiting for?

Go on, download now and see just what we mean.



Flickr Experiencing Downtime – Back Up Your Flickr Photos With SocialSafe

Photo sharing service Flickr is experiencing serious periods of downtime, just days after a releasing a major upgrade to the platform. At this point it’s not a total outage, with some users experiencing no difficulties, however other users have not been able to access the site for hours.

Flickr has acknowledged that there is indeed a problem, and tweeted to that effect:

The Flickr update on Monday overhauled the site’s interface by adding large, high-res photos, along with recently updating the iOS and Android apps. As a result of the iOS update, Flickr has seen a 25 percent increase in uploads from that platform.

It is thought at this point that the outage being experienced by some users is down to the additional load placed on the servers by the influx of high-res images being uploaded in the wake of the new update. Flickr’s 89 million users also had their upload allowance expanded to 1Tb, which may also have added to the problems.

If you are concerned about ever finding yourself unable to access your latest uploads, you can back up your Flickr account using SocialSafe. Simply download the free trial and add your Flickr account as an RSS feed to automatically download your most recent posts to your own machine.

At the moment SocialSafe can only back up your most recent photos via RSS, but we do have plans to add full support for Flickr in due course.
