If you’re like me, you’ve uploaded photos of your Friends to Facebook, snapped hipster-style photos to Instagram, and shared photos with family on Flickr. You have hundreds, if not thousands, of photos scattered across several photo-sharing services. To make it easier to see all these pictures in one place, Pictarine has emerged as hub for all of your photos.
Pictarine, which launched earlier these week, allows you to connect your Facebook, Picasa, Flickr, Instagram, and Twitter accounts to instantly upload all of your photos to the centralized service. You can also upload photos directly from your desktop. Once all your accounts have been connected, you can browse all of your albums, your friends’ albums, tagged photos, and things called “zests,” which are virtual albums created by your friends where you can mix photos between all of your services.
Pictarine is useful if you want to merely see all of your photos in one place, but lacks key social features or cross-integration. While other services like Fotolink allow you to drag and drop photos across multiple services, Pictarine is merely a hub for all of your photos. You can download photos or albums to your computer, but there is no option to upload photos from Pictarine to another service, or share them on Facebook or Twitter. Pictarine is also slightly slow and clunky, making it painful to even browse photos. Without any integration or social functions, Pictarine is helpful to just to find all of your photos in one place, but will hopefully be the foundation for something much bigger — and much more useful.
