Forever Announces the Release of Valet™, Its New Memory Management Tool

Forever, Inc. Launches Free Memory Management Tool to Help Users Protect Photos Stored on Their Desktops by Uploading Automatically to Forever.com

PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwired - December 10, 2015) - Forever, Inc, the one-stop shop for digitizing, editing, printing, permanently saving, and sharing family photos and memories is pleased to announce that it has launched a new memory management tool called Forever Valet. The new tool is free, and automatically backs up photos saved on desktop computers to individual Forever™ accounts at Forever.com. With Valet, users can automatically push large collections of photos to Forever from their computer directories, or smaller collections from specific folders. Users can also automatically upload photos from iPhoto, Aperture, or Picasa Web.

"This is a powerful new memory keeping tool that offers incredible peace of mind," said Forever Founder & CEO, Glen Meakem. "With Forever Valet, our Members never again need to worry about losing their photos because of a hard drive crash or stolen computer. And with Valet's additional features, it's now easier than ever for Forever members to organize, manage, and protect their photos in their Forever accounts."

In addition to automatically synching users photos with their Forever accounts, Valet also:

  • Maintains users hierarchical or "nested album" organization
  • Saves the metadata attached to users photos
  • Runs continuously in the background
  • Works on both PC and Mac computers
  • Keeps uploaded albums and photos "private" at Forever.com until users choose to share them with friends and family

Forever also launched the ability for users to create hierarchical folders, or "nested albums," in their Forever accounts. According to Meakem, "Forever members have been telling us for months that they wanted nested albums in order to better organize their memories and tell their family stories. Whether you import them using Valet, or create them directly in the Forever App, these hierarchical folders provide another piece of valuable functionality to our community of memory keepers. We are building a fully integrated, easy-to-use, and complete memory keeping solution that enables users to do everything they need to permanently collect, curate, and celebrate their precious memories for generations. With Forever Valet and nested albums, we have taken the next steps towards achieving this goal."

About Forever

Forever, Inc. offers the world's first and only guaranteed permanent online media storage and sharing service, which is backed by the patent-pending Forever Guarantee. Forever was founded and is led by Glen Meakem, previous Founder and CEO of the highly successful business-to-business e-commerce company, FreeMarkets, Inc. The team at Forever believes that family memories should never be lost. Forever offers a one-stop-shop for digitizing, editing, printing, permanently saving, and sharing family photos and memories.

It also offers award winning mobile apps for iOS and Android that automatically back up to member accounts at www.forever.com as well as web and desktop apps so customers can access, edit, and organize their content from virtually any device. Forever guarantees customers who buy "permanent sharable storage" that their photos and memories will be saved for their lifetimes plus 100 years with the goal of many generations beyond. The company can make this guarantee because a large portion of the money customers pay for "permanent storage" is deposited into the Forever Guarantee Fund, a restricted fund that acts like a permanent endowment or reserve, with earnings paying for storage, bandwidth, and migration to new file formats for generations into the future.

The company also offers Forever Artisan, the leading digital scrapbooking software, and Forever Historian -- photo organization and management software, as well as Forever digital art, printing, photo scanning and media conversion services.
