Many internet users are storing their images on photo sharing/hosting services like Flickr, SmugMug or Picasa to make sure they are easily reachable and backed up regularly.

OpenPhoto is an open source PHP application that encourages users to host their images in the cloud (Amazon S3, Rackspace CloudFiles, Google Storage, etc.) on their own and functions as a front-end to manage + present them.


This way, images stay totally under control of users, switching providers become much easier and users won't be limited with the capabilities offered by photo sharing/hosting services.

The front-end has a simplistic interface where photos are displayed as a grid, categorized with tags and searched easily. It is also mobile-friendly and has theming support.

OpenPhoto itself is built on top of the powerful API which makes it possible to improve it or integrate photos with any other apps.

OneWay is a tiny, free and open source Mac OS X application for instantly uploading any file/folder.

It can upload data to FTP, SFTP or Amazon S3 directly from your Finder.

You can save the frequently used upload locations to the context menu (project-backups, personal-backups, etc) and send the files with a ctrl+click.

OneWay is very functional for web designers/developers while live-testing a web project as it usually requires frequent updates or easily backing up project files.
