Parents with young children (or those expecting) may consider creating a scrapbook for their children. Many document important life events, holidays and family gatherings, to give to their son or daughter on their 18th or 21st birthday. Doing this preserves the memories, the trials and the triumphs experienced during their formative years.

However, I doubt that in 1995, many new parents thought that their child’s 18th birthday party would be organized on Facebook, uploaded to Youtube and checked into on Foursquare.

Limetree offers parents the digital solution. You can upload your pictures, videos, sound files or letters to your account. On your child’s birthday (or any other time you select), the limetree is released. Hard copies fade with age; the cloud preserves indefinitely.

If you’ve ever tried turning pictures into a video slideshow complete with nice yet subtle animations and music you’re licensed to share, you’ve likely wondered why it’s not easier. It’s at best something that’ll take you a half hour in an app like iMovie or Windows Movie Maker, and that’s if your internet upload speed is decent. Making a video online sounds ludicrous at first bluff, since web apps are usually relatively slow and cumbersome to use.

But not Evver. It’s a web app designed solely to turn your pictures into beautiful music videos, and is the only web app I’ve ever seen that dumbfounded me with its speed. We looked at it back in July, but it’s grown up so much since then, it’s only right to take another look at it. Here’s why Evver is the app to use, on desktop or mobile, if you want to make an animated photo slideshow video.

You’ve got thousands of photos sitting on your computer and phone, with obscure names that’ll be long forgotten. If you’re like most of us, it’s just too much trouble to turn them into something beautiful to share and enjoy. But that’s no longer the case with Evver, our sponsor this week.

Evver is, hands-down, the simplest way to turn your photos into an artistic creation. Just select your photos from your computer or smartphone, then choose a song from their great collection of music from indie artists, then go grab a drink. In less than a minute, you’ll have a choreographed video of your selected pictures and music ready to enjoy and share. It’s that simple — and it’s 100% free.

I’ve been using the Flickr app for iPhone since it was revamped, and occasionally dumping a batch of photos onto my user profile. But until recently, I’ve been waiting to see what comes next with Yahoo’s social photo platform. And as I branch out my own small business out to include professional photography, I wanted to pay close attention.

With its recent update to Flickr, Yahoo went out of its way to completely overhaul Flickr’s design. It’s exactly what I was waiting for. Does it have what it takes to compete with other offerings like 500px? Read on for my thoughts.

How many photos do you have littered across various devices and services? The ease with which we can now snap photos means that most of us now have thousands of images dotted across numerous online services.

Sick of having to jump from one site to another just to find the image you’re looking for? Trovebox is here to help. Consolidation is the order of the day as this is a service that enables you to pull all of your images into one place for ease of access.

With the advent of the smartphone, we are increasingly taking more and more pictures all the time. What makes it even worse, or better depending on how you look at it, is that smartphones are starting to get better in picture quality and almost rivaling mid-level digital cameras. Then we have apps like Instagram, Facebook, Flickr, etc., where we can take and host our pictures for free or for a nominal fee. Needless to say,we all have quite a collection of pictures that we have taken over the years in a variety of different places. Some of them are in Instagram, maybe some on Facebook, and others on our computer.

Over the past year, there have been a few services that have come up that are willing to host your photos and gather them from all of these different places and charge you a fee to do that. Now, granted some of these services have been around for years, Flickr and Photo Bucket to name a few, but it has only been recent that developers are seriously targeting this market for the everyday user. For example, the web app that I have been testing out, Trovebox, caters to and targets the everyday user who wants a place to store their photos. Unlike their competitors, they have some features that set them apart, but will it be enough to convince people to make the switch? Let’s take a look.

Ever since the birth of my son, a little over a year ago, I have never taken so many pictures. The hard part with this is that because I mainly use my iPhone to take pictures and I post these to Facebook, Instagram, etc, I have a hard time trying to gather all of them to show my parents when they want to see them. Not only that, but my folks are not into the whole social media thing, so being that they live thousands of miles away, it is some times hard for me to continually share with them all the pictures I have.

Lately, I have had the opportunity to play around with a web app called Slide.ly, which lets you take your pictures and put it into a slideshow and then show it to your friends and family. They make it pretty easy to gather pictures from just about any where, and then let you create your own slideshow. I know there are other apps that have similar features, but I wanted to take this one for a spin to see how it compared.

Every party I go to in December has one thing in common: every person has a camera – either a clicker or the one on their phone – and is happily shooting away. The next day, my Facebook notifications go haywire with all the photos I’m tagged in, I get emails from people sharing albums of the event on Picasa and Flickr, there are a bunch of Instagram photos of the same night (and usually with a lot of food in that, sigh!), and my dad and his friends stick to good old email attachments.

And the whole point of a service like Everpix really sunk in when this happened: a nifty web app that collates photos from all your different accounts and puts them under one roof. And it even features an app for the iPhone that takes all of its images. Lovely! But does it actually deliver?

The holidays are fast approaching, and that means photos aplenty. Whether you’re going on vacation or hosting family and friends, most folks end up getting a lot of mileage out of their cameras around this time of year. Now’s also a great time to get hold of and get used to a quality photo editing app, so that you can enhance your pictures for sharing online or adding to greeting cards, postcards and gifts. And that’s why we’re checking out PhotoCat.

Loaded with simple editing tools and a range of extra features perfect for adding fun and cheer to photos, this new app is perfect for home users young and old. And those of you who’re celebrating Christmas are in for a real treat, as PhotoCat has a bunch of special yuletide effects and decorations to play with! Let’s see how easy it is to edit our photos with this new kid on the block, and how it stacks up against the competition.

It’s been said that the world would be a better place if everybody knew how to edit their photos. Okay, fine, I just made that up. But it’s true, though — images are so much a part of our digital lives that being able to post quality pictures has become a necessary skill. And with the wide range of easy-to-use imaging apps available for every platform, there’s really no excuse for using poor, boring images anymore.

Today we’re taking a look at a new player in the editing game, and it’s called Fotor. With its array of tools and effects, this app offers plenty of scope for adding a creative touch to your shots. And while it’s simple enough for novices to get into, Fotor is also a great option for those familiar with photography, to work quickly with images wherever they are. Let’s dive in!
