Organizing your photos can be a daunting task if you don’t have the proper tools for the job. Everpix, which launched last week, is hoping to help users make sense of the madness otherwise known as digital photo files.

Everpix is a cloud-based photo management service that runs on your desktop and synchronizes with most photo-sharing apps. Everpix browses your computer for photos and then uploads them to a remote server run by the company.

If you take tons of photos, you probably have them stashed everywhere, from Facebook and Picasa, to Gmail and Instagram. Everpix will scour all your digital hangouts to find any photos that might be lurking around. It’s compatible with software programs, like Aperture, Adobe Lightroom and iPhoto, too.

Best of all, when you add more photos to your computer, Everpix will automatically send them to the cloud to join your photo collection. No more tending your photo files like an unruly garden–just download the app, and Everpix will take it from there.

Everpix will even help weed out bad pictures from your perfectly cultivated collection. If a photo is blurry or oversaturated with light, Everpix will hide these unsightly images so they won’t bring down your entire photo set. Users also have the option of manually hiding a photo album in case they don’t want everyone to see certain shots.

What good does having a memorable photo collection do if you can’t share it with friends and family? Using what Everpix calls “assistive curating,” the app turns disorganized photos into groups called “Moments,” in attractive layouts to share with others. You can make the groups public to share with the world, or you can take advantage of Everpix’s social component, which lets you connect with other users to see their new photos as soon as they’re uploaded.

If you’ve got photos stashed everywhere that you’d like to more easily enjoy and share, check out Everpix for a solution that you can set up once and forget about.
