How many times have you had to comb through your multiple social media profiles, camera roll, and the cloud to find that perfect shot you want to share with your friends? Having your memories scattered around can make sharing photos with friends and family a hectic, time-consuming process. Capturing and sharing memories should be fun, but with so many ways to store your pictures nowadays, managing them has become exhausting.
Yet a new product can help organize your photos and easily share them with those you love. Meet ibi is a smart photo management tool that collects all your photos across various platforms and stores them in one easily accessible place.
Ibi has a variety of features that make it stand out in comparison to the more conventional ways of sharing photos online. Here are just a few of its elements.
Choose who you want to share your photos with
With the rise of social media, oversharing information online has become the norm. Yet posting too much publicly comes with a host of risks such as cyberbullying, damage to your reputation, identity theft, security concerns, and targeted advertising. Social media users have become increasingly more concerned about online privacy after it was revealed Facebook shared users’ personal data with political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica. As a result, research shows internet users are sharing less on social media amid privacy concerns. Facebook has tried to alter its brand to fit a more personal, “family and friends” vibe after the Cambridge Analytica scandal. People want a way to share more privately, and social media seems to be listening by showcasing new features. But that still might not be enough.
Ibi is the social media tool that puts you in the driver’s seat. Some moments are just too intimate to share with the whole world, and ibi understands that.
With ibi’s private sharing feature, you can share your photos with those that matter most. Additionally, ibi comes with the Inner Circle, a space where you can invite your closest friends and family members to post photos and videos for everyone in the group to see. And with shared albums, you can privately share photos from weddings, vacations, or another event and invite others to do the same, so the footage is neatly organized in one place.
Ibi is easy to install and easily accessible from any platform. To get started, all you have to do is plug it in, download the app, and create an account. It’s that simple. And with ibi’s mobile, web, and desktop apps, you can see your saved photos and videos on virtually every device.
Tons of space
Storing photos and videos can take up a huge amount of space on your phone and in the cloud. You either have to delete memories or buy more storage space to meet your needs. Priced at $179, ibi is a steal compared to the hidden costs of cloud services.
Beyond ibi, however, you can share your photos with friends and relatives through photo storage websites. Flickr is recommended for its huge storage space and variety of tools like tagging features, downloading options, and viewing statistics. Photobucket offers a handful of unique editing tools to make your photos stand out. Google’s photo-sharing service allows you to crop and change the colors of your photos. You can share the albums you create publicly or with certain Google users, making this service great for sharing. However, Google’s storage capacity doesn’t make it ideal because if you want to store photos larger than 16 megapixels, you have to pay.
