Everpix adds new Explore feature to rediscover your pictures

The intelligent cloud-based picture storage, browsing, and sharing service (available for free) can now automatically arrange your collection by content type.

If one of your resolutions for the new year was to get your hundreds (or thousands) of pictures gathered up in one place and organized for easier browsing, you'll want to check out Everpix.

The service, which started two years ago, can be connected to your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, Picasa Web Albums, and Gmail accounts and will pull in pictures from those sources and collect them together in one interface.

It can also be connected to Windows or Mac computers and iOS devices (Android support is in development). Once pictures are uploaded, Everpix analyzes your shots so you can view them instantly in groups it calls Moments, Highlights, and now Explore.

While the first two basically distill your photos into events for you to easily browse through, the new Explore (available through the Web browser interface or with an iOS app update (you'll need iOS 6 or newer to use it)) feature lets you view your collection by content -- food, people, cities, nature, and animals -- with a single click. So whether you want to rediscover pics of your cats or browse through forgotten pictures of cake, you can do that with no effort on your part.

All of this is done through intelligent analysis of your photos, so there is no tagging by you or Everpix (consequently, if you leave the service, you're pretty much back to square one).

Along with the new Explore feature, Everpix changed its pricing to include a free version that holds all your photos from the past 12 months. If you decide you'd like to have your entire picture collection in Everpix, a premium account will set you back $49 a year or $4.99 a month.
