Why can't I multi-select photos in the iOS app?

If you've been with Picturelife for a while, you'll notice that a few features are no longer in the Picturelife app. Some of those features have been taken back to the labs - we're working on making them more fun, more beautiful, and easier to use.

Below is (not a comprehensive) list of features that will return, but bigger and better:

  1. Album Sharing - via link, email, post to, etc.
  2. Multi-select photos & albums (to delete, share, add to, etc)
  3. Discover - back in the labs!
  4. Family Stream - available on the web but back in the labs for iOS - we're overhauling Sharing in general!

We know the new Timeline is a bit of a leap from the old one, but we hope you'll give it a shot! We're continuing to work on it and make it easier than ever to navigate through even the largest of photo collections. Tap the date in the corner to scroll quickly through the years and find that exact moment you're looking for!

We would love to hear what you think - please feel free to add your loves / hates / wish list as a comment to this article!

    I notice that Family Stream is no longer in the app. Will this be returning? It's the easiest way we've found to share photos with our parents/family, who can download the app and check new photos from us on their phones.

    Without the Family Stream the picturelife app is basically useless.

    Finally, will it ever be possible to have an album of hidden photos that does not display one of the hidden photos on the album icon? Until you did this thing to us, it was my only pet peeve with Picturelife

    Posted the "Finally" part above by an errant tap. Sorry. Here's the preliminary:

    I have no PC or Mac to download the Picturelife app you've been sending daily emails to tell me to do. I didn't think I needed this app before. Now I presume I need a PC to do anything with my photos?

    I am temporarily without an iPad also. Using only my iPhone, I've not found a way to adjust the photo display size, so my screen lets me view something like three. I have many thousands of photos on Picturelife. Finding photos is far too tedious to bother. I much prefer the format you had for displaying pictures. I hope that will at least be an option.

    So far, since the changes, what I find I can do I find too cumbersome. I've just made the change to Picturelife to consolidate my stuff in one place. What Picturelife is now is not at all what I need. I'll give it a few days, but no more.

    I not able to upload any videos from my Iphone, it says backup complete but all the videos have a lightning bolt symbol on them. This is even when I clicked on "upload everything". This is a real problem

    Please advise when posting albums will return. It's not really acceptable to not have this feature and greatly reduces the value of the platform...

    Also, if it is disabled, why does it appear to function within the browser but not complete the task. Really bad user experience.

    The goal is to re-enable sharing of albums in mid August.

    Based on the comments, this issue has existed for a long time without the features re-enabled. Any update to the expected return of these features more specific than "asap"?

    Hi Ricardo,

    The option has actually been available for quite some time now.
    When displaying an album, just click on the top right "Options" to display the "Share Album" option.

    Thanks!
