OMGPOP Founder Charles Forman Founder Launches Picturelife

Posted Apr 16, 2013

In March 2012, OMGPOP was acquired by Zynga for around $180 million.  OMGPOP founder Charles Forman has now launched a new venture called Picturelife.  Forman has been working on Picturelife with Threadless co-founder Jacob Dehart and OHours founder Nate Westheimer. The three of them spent two years building the startup as a way to put “all your pictures in one place.”

Picturelife is available in the form of a Mac or Windows software application.  Users can also download the Picturelife iPad or iPhone app.  From there, Picturelife will pull every image or video file from select locations to sync.  The images can be viewed on multiple devices and everything is made private by default. The company relies on a “freemium” business model where the first 5GB are free.  Users can pay either 100GB or 300GB monthly or annually.

Picturelife will let you back up any photos from linked social accounts like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and Tumblr.  Picturelife supports iPhoto’s library, ratings, and album structure along with Aperture’s organization patterns.

Picturelife Premium Plus costs $15 per month for 300GB.  The company’s Premium service (100GB) costs $7 per month.
