Import pictures from your favorite social networks

We live in a connected world and our photos can end up in a lot of places.

That’s why Picturelife lets you import your photos from other social networks right to your Picturelife library. That way, all your photos find their way home to Picturelife.

Picturelife lets you import your photos from:

  • Facebook
  • Dropbox
  • Flickr
  • Foursquare
  • Google (including Picasa)
  • Instagram
  • SmugMug
  • Tumblr

You can also post photos directly from Picturelife to:

  • Facebook
  • Flickr
  • Shutterfly
  • Tumblr
  • Twitter

Picturelife does not import videos from third party social networks.

To backup your videos, please back up the files from your computer using our desktop Smartloader, which can be downloaded for free here: picturelife.com/download. You can also backup videos straight from your iOS device or Android device.

Setup and manage import - from a desktop or laptop computer

  1. Login to your Picturelife Account Setting
  2. Find and click the Connect button next to the social network you want to import from
  3. Adjust the following settings:
    • Automatic backup - turn ON to import new and existing pictures
    • Use Privacy Settings - leave OFF to import all photos as private
    • Retain album structure - ON to retain album structure
    • Dropbox - Before activating Dropbox import, adjust advanced Dropbox settings

That's it! Picturelife will start importing your photos. Allow some time - it's not automatic and will take a bit of time before all of your photos are imported.

    Is it possible to connect to the same social network multiple times? So could I connect to both my and my wife's separate G+ accounts and bring all our photos together here into one Picturelife account?
