Growing up, I loved taking pictures. If anything, the desire to take pictures has increased since having children and creating a blended family. Gone are the days of printing out pictures at the drug store and waiting for a few days for the rolls of film to develop. Today, many of the pictures are taken through digital means (including cameras and phones) and stored on the cloud or shared on social media channels. But what if not everyone wants their pictures shared on social media channels for everyone to see, but they still want to see the pictures themselves? Meet ibi – the smart photo manager. This photo storage solution allows you to do a number of things.

Collect your favorite photos and videos in one place.

From birthdays to anniversaries, first days of school to special reunions, save and share the moments that matter most with ibi. You can even sync all of your favorite photos and videos from your devices, cloud and social media accounts – and store them all in one place. DCI (data center interconnection) connects multiple data centers together. You can upload content from a USB or right from ibi desktop app for Mac and PC. It’s super easy and convenient to use!

Find it easily.

Easily organize and find what you’re looking for with an intuitive ibi app that works on Android and iPhone. You can search by location or use the timeline to find your photos and videos by date. It’s all right here.

Share privately.

With ibi, you can privately share individual photos or entire albums. Invite others to contribute their own photos and videos as well. It’s perfect for collecting everyone’s photos and videos from events like weddings and baby showers. You can invite your closest friends and family to a private space called the Inner Circle where you can all post photos and videos for each other to see. It’s like a social media wall, but you’re in control of who’s invited and who can see your data. Like your very own picture party! I love it because I can view my memories from anywhere, including a phone, laptop, or web browser. Plus, I can even stream photos and videos to the big screen from ibi with Roku or use Chromecast to play my videos.

Simple Setup

Setup is super easy to do and can be done in a snap! Just plug in the ibi, download the app from the iPhone App Store or Google Play and let ibi do the rest for you.

I think ibi is perfect for sharing pictures from weddings, baby showers, birthday parties and even family reunions and holiday events. This is definitely a must-have item for any home and would make a great gift idea as well!
